What type of books do you mostly write?
I’ve written a broad range of books from book-length poems such as Josie Delgado to the non-fiction The Weekend Novelist Writes a Mystery. Right now, I’m completing The California Quartet, all literary fiction. Blood is on a shelf by itself because I’m not sure just what it is so I keep it in a glass case apart from the other work.
Jack, is there anything you'd go back and do differently now that you have been published, in regards to your writing career?
I don’t think so. Where I am right now is the result of where I was. I look more to the future—what am I doing now that’s shaping what I will be. If you recall, Edit Piaf’s anthem, “Non, je ne regrette rien…” I don’t regret a thing. Put it another way—I wouldn’t be who I am if I hadn’t made the mistakes I did.
How do you see the future of book publishing, both traditional, electronic and print on demand?
The industry has changed and will continue to change. I like the world of instant e-books, but I don’t own an e-reader. I like to buy books, carry books around, fall asleep with a book on my chest, and sleep with books beside my bed like cats. The way I see it, the changes in the industry have forced writers to do more of the work publishers used to do. Like this blog tour.
