Interview: M. Yero Morris

What have you had published? 
This is my first attempt of publishing a book
What genre(s) of book do you write? 
What inspired you to write your first book? 
My life
How long did it take you to write “Odyssey through HELL Exit, Push here: X”? 
2 days, and 6 weeks of editing
What is the working title of your next book(s)? 
Still working on that, It will be likely another eclectic mix of business and life as life is in reality, with a strong focus on innovation  as it has become my specialty. I do need my day job to feed up the research for the next project
When and why did you begin writing?
The book, Odyssey through Hell explains it.  Actually I had a couple of previous attempts; the largest was wiped out by a computer virus 20 years ago that died with the virus. I guess I have my mother’s genes, though that old one would’ve been in the erotic section...Sorry, virus got to my brain’s hard drive.
Do you self publish your books or go through an agency? 
Self, still only on Kindle version and working on any opportunity that may pop up. So I’d really appreciate any expert’s help. Though it’s been difficult but fun doing all by myself because it has given me a strong sense of accomplishment
What part of writing books do you find the hardest? 
Starting, and then the editing
What do you do in your spare time? 
I have a ton of hobbies including my boys
Who is your favourite author? 
I have so many. Conan Doyle, Alan Weiss, Woody Allen, Cousteau, DragonLance saga... I've read maybe around and upwards of 1000 books. So, yup, no trends. I do drive Amazon suggestions bonkers
What’s your favourite genre to read? 
Almost all except cheesy stuff. Mainly Fantasy, mystery, humour, hard science... Lately I’ve read mostly business to learn and apply
Do you have any advice for other writers? 
Type away, and get rid of any and all fears. They are worthless. What’s the worst that can happen? Exactly, nothing.
Is there anything else you’d like to add? 
The book is about my quest of finding the pot of gold, and instead I found something else much more valuable. Hope you do enjoy, and please do leave a review on Amazon! and you can reach me in Twitter @myeromorris
Updates since the book: 
Well, I’ve been getting myself involved in a few projects, mostly in business modelling into ecological solutions, but so wide range that I’ll drive any close minds just berserk, just like Amazon’s suggestions. Still broke, but I’m having so much fun and with awesome projections, so I’m not worried.
