About Steven Marie:
I’ve always wanted to create fiction stories, even though I haven’t published any fiction novels yet. Still, I channel my love for writing into non-fiction work. I think of myself as a sort of adventurer who likes going ahead, testing things out, and sharing the results and experiences I gained. I want to help everyone I can by sharing my own experiences. Hopefully, through reading what I’ve written, others can learn the same lessons that I did.
What inspires you to write?
I tend to be a rather impatient person and I like testing out theories or methods that I think might work in solving a particular problem. I even like testing out my own ideas and seeing if they really work.
Sometimes, you could even say I take drastic action, but it suits me. It’s my way of getting to the heart of a problem. What inspires me the most is the hope that, somehow, I can use my experiences to help others. That’s the only reason why I write in the first place, so that I’ll be able to share what I’ve learned and experienced to others and hopefully help them get through their problems with minimal bruising.
Tell us about your writing process.
Before I write a single word, I make sure that I’ve done my research. I want to keep my mind open and collect information from all sources, whether they are mainstream or unconventional, just so I know that I have all my bases covered.
Once I’ve found a substantial amount of information, I test it out. There is no better way of really knowing the ins and outs of a certain method than by trying it out and experiencing it for yourself. Testing out solutions has been a great way for me to get some real insight into the matter. I also make sure that I take other people’s knowledge into account by collecting testimonials from those who have had the same experiences.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I found that publishing my work was and still is the best and easiest way for me to reach out and share my thoughts, knowledge, and experiences with a lot of people, and even the whole planet. I want to share positivity, empathy and kindness through my work and hopefully counter all the pervading negativity that everyone has to face.
I really believe that by publishing my ideas and knowledge with good intentions, I’m doing my part in sharing positive thinking, and hopefully make the world a little brighter.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I believe that book publishing, in the future, will become more inclusive. In the past, maybe just a few decades ago, you would have no hope of publishing your work without a big publishing company behind you. You can’t hope to get what you’ve written out to the public and read by others if you can’t get a book deal. But this is already changing. A lot of people are able to get their books out without needing too much capital; all you really need is the patience and knowledge to write.
There’s more freedom to write about anything you want to, and people will have access to it wherever they are. This means that ideas are sent and received very quickly, but this can also cause harm when it comes to making sure the information is credible, which is why authors have to make sure they maintain their credibility to their readers. The more freedom we have, the more responsibility we need to exercise.
