Author Interview – Todd M Thiede

What are some of the best tools available today for writers, especially those just starting out? The best tools available today are all on your computer.  Spell check and grammar check.  These do not compare to a good editor though.  The editor is the most important thing for any writer.  You can read and read your own book but you will always miss something.  The editor won’t.

What do you do to unwind and relax? I like to watch movies and hang with my family.  I would rather be hanging out with them more than anything.  When they are at school, work, or wherever and I am alone I like to play video games to escape the world around me.

What are your current writing projects now? I am currently writing book two of the Max Larkin detective series.  This is one is called “Lies to Die For”.  It follows our two young detectives in Rockton Illinois yet again. 

How do you promote this book? I promoted this book with twitter, facebook, and book blogs.  Marketing is not my forte but I have had great luck with facebook and twitter.  My publicist is working on more book signings and radio interviews as well.

Who designed the cover? I came up with the design of the cover.  My publisher sent me many pictures of the clock on the cover and although I put a lot of time in picking the clock.  They didn’t agree with me and came up with that cover.  Although the overall cover design was my idea they used their expertise in making it look like it does.

What inspires you to write and why? My imagination is what inspires me.  I truly can’t shut my brain and imagination off.  I have a hard time sleeping at night because my brain is always coming up with new ideas for books and other things.
