Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am very interested in the field of creativity, their are so many platforms of knowledge. But I feel as if Storytelling, is the strongest, storytelling form. Is definetly, the catalyst of how civilizations have learned to communicate.
I started writing around age six, when my first grade teacher asked us to make a picture book. I remember it, at this point of my life is like a memory.
But I have been in the process of writing ever since, I started getting more serious as a writer by age 16. When i was in high school in ten grade. I learned some very valuable lessons then, I asked the teacher what was the age of the youngest author. He didn’t know.
My curiosity led me to begin going to the library, and learn how to write screenplays. Ever since that day, I have read thousands of books on screenwriting, book writing, story, characters, success, hollywood, directing actors, cinematography, and in recent years crowdfunding and more contemporary stuff. I have written four books so far.
1. CrowdFunding Explosion
2. How to stop smoking today
3. How to Sell your art Not sell out
4. How to make money online in 24 hours
All of which are available on Amazon, one How to Make money online in 24 hours is available in all major distribution networks, B&N, Itunes store, KOBO, NOOK, Sony and many others.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
How to make money online in 24 hours, the reasons why I decided to make this book. Was because I used to be a financial analyst, and I noticed that their are alot of people who wanted to make money online. An spend money on different programs, visited websites, learned tutorials. But still were unable to make money online, so my thought process was how can i teach them Some of the basics of me being a financial advisor, How can i teach someone how to make money without charging $300 dollars an hour.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I usually write late at night, like around 1 am or later while everyone is sleeping or while am in the bathroom.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Definetly J.K. Rowlings, stephen king, tom clancy. j.r. tolkien
What are you working on now?
The secret society, is a fiction book. I originally wrote this book at age 16, and so this book is more than 10 years in the making. I am of really proud of this book, the only reason. Why this book has taken me so long to actually publish it, is because i wrote it when i was 16 years old.
It’s a science fiction story and it has a secret society also. So i think that the combinations of those two worlds, is very interesting to think about and to read. In my opinion, I don’t think a book like this has been out in the last decade, so am looking forward to continue editing it. Until november 20th, and release it two weeks before december, so it can take advantage of the holidays and sell.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I’m just getting started with promotimg my book, am a newbie when it comes to promotion and advertising. I still have to find more effective ways to show people my work, Right now. The only tool I have used is Social media, and i think I need to expand beyond my current reach.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
I would say to think of the potential audience before you write a book, because sometimes you get over excited before you wrote something you think is good. An you just want to show people what you can do, I think is best to wait until you say. This the best I can ever do, and then show people. Cause people are exposed to so many things, you have to bring your A game.
On top of that, just have a marketing plan. Don’t expect people to just find your novel, plan ahead. An put a budget aside just for the marketing and promotion, have people get to know you as an author. Beyond that, you have to keep connecting and building a fan base.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
market, market, market. Edit, Edit, Edit.
What are you reading now?
Am actually reading my own novels, to find ways to make the second edition or to write better the next time I have another book published.
What’s next for you as a writer?
Improvement, continuos improvement. Writing maybe an app, or creating entertainment devises such as game stories or something as equally complex, As a writer, maybe writing a Japanese story about clans, or even martial arts films. Which are my favorite.
What is your favorite book of all time?
