Author Interview: Travis Lee

Travis Lee has written The Journey Through Nanking.

1. What is your name and where do you call home?
My name is Travis Lee, and I currently live in the United States, though part of me will always belong to China.

2. Do you have a pen name?

3. What is the name of your most recent book and if you had to sum it up in 20 or less words, what would you say?
The Journey through Nanking - A girl lost from her family in a warzone must conqueror her fears in order to survive.

4. Do you have plans for a new book? Is this book part of a series?
I've written some since then, and I'm writing one right now. I have a few I'm going to try to sell, and others I'll self-publish. No, this book is not part of a series.

5. Do you gift books to readers for book reviews?

6. How did you come up with the title for your book?
I drew the title from what happens, on a basic level, in the book.

7. Is there anything you would change about your book? And why?
No. Nothing.

8. Do you have a book trailer? And what are your thoughts on book trailers?
I'm not well-known, so I don't think creating a book trailer would be worth it. If a book trailer helps a writer sell more books, then I'm all for it.

9. Do you prefer e-books, paperbacks, hardcovers or audiobooks?
No preference. There are some really kickass audiobooks out there, such as anything read by Frank Muller.

10. Are you a self-published / Indie author?

11. Have you ever read a book more than once? And if so what was it?
I reread The Alchemist quite a bit. Ditto for The War of Art. Both those books help me when I'm down.
12. Have you ever bought a specific edition of a book because of it’s cover? (For example a UK, US or Canadian version)
No. In fact, I'd say a cover does not influence me to buy a book.

13. Has the quality of the cover of a book ever put you off of reading it?

14. What book are you reading at the moment? And in what format?
Native Son, by Richard Wright. Paperback.

15. Do you have any advice for other writers? And what’s the best advice that you have been given when it comes to writing?
If you know you're meant to write, then do it, no matter what. There are people who say they don't have enough time to write, but I think they're not trying hard enough. No matter how big a family you have or how many hours you work, you can find time to write. It may be difficult, but if it fulfills you, it's worth it.

16. Where can your readers follow you?
