Author Interview – Rick Johnson

Tuesday, May 28, 2013

Can we expect any more books from you in the future? I have been working on a book of what I call “slices of life” which will also be based on personal experiences but not in a front to back story format. Each will be a standalone little story that, I hope, in some way will touch the reader.

Are there any new authors that have sparked your interest and why? In my work as an editor I have come across some phenomenal new writers who are doing fairly well. Nowadays you not only need a good book with good writing, but also a good marketing and promotional plan to succeed as a writer financially. I do what I can to help my writers and myself of course, on that score.

What contributes to making a writer successful? Again, marketing seems to be the key, but not every writer has a sense of that, or the drive to do it well. They are two very different things, particularly because writing can be such a solitary, introverted thing while marketing seems to demand just the opposite.

Do you have any advice for writers? Yes, but it’s old… WRITE! WRITE! WRITE!

Do you have any specific last thoughts that you want to say to your readers? I would love that you read my book and give me some feedback.

What do you do to unwind and relax? I meditate regularly and like to work in the yard, push dirt around, etc. And I enjoy a nice glass of wine with good company.
