Mark David Major

What is hardest – getting published, writing or marketing?

MARK: Marketing.

What marketing works for you?

MARK: Word of mouth always works best. The blogs (www.thesovereignty.com/blog and www.outlaw-urbanist.com/blog are useful because they are marketing tools but also offer an opportunity based on the discipline of writing to actually test out ideas and drafts.

Do you find it hard to share your work?

LAYCE: I do at times, but I am working on putting myself out there more.

MARK: I don’t. People often tell me that I share too much information.

Do you plan to publish more books?

MARK: We’ve already agreed to do a follow-up children’s book to An Infinitesimal Abundance of Color, which we hope to publish next year. We have a concept in mind.

LAYCE: I’m sketching out ideas for the illustrations but I’m really waiting on Mark to write the story.

MARK: I’m still working it out in my head. I also really need to resume work on the sequel to Mars Rising. I’m procrastinating with purpose (see my answer above).

If you could study any subject at university what would you pick?

LAYCE: Animation and Sequential Art

MARK: These may sound odd but I would really like to study for a Masters of Business Administration (on top of all of my other degrees). However, it’s too expensive to invest in what is really a whim at this point in my life.
