In an intimate interview setting, Steven Sanchez will interview Author Gerald Everett Jones about his writing life, including the following:

  • What research do you do prior to writing?
  • What pre-release promotion or market research do you do?
  • How do you actually write your novels?
  • What tips can you share about your discipline of writing, defeating writer’s block or other distractions, and chasing your muse?
  • How do you balance the challenges of writing with the needs of your family and of life in general?
  • Do you self-publish or work with an agent or publisher?
  • What do you do to launch your book?
  • How do you promote your book AFTER it’s released?
  • And much more!
