Interview With Author David Clark

Transformation Through The Power of Fearless Recovery is Out There

1. What inspired you to write your book?
Really I wanted to try to sort through my life in a way that might help it make sense to me. I thought maybe it could make a compelling story, but really I had to purge it all and see what it looked like form the outside. 

2. What is it about?
It's about losing yourself and finding yourself again in a whole new way. It's about how we view ourselves, why we look at ourselves the way we do - and how to change it. 

3. What do you hope will be the everlasting thoughts for readers who finish your book?
If I did my job correctly the reader will stay awake at night and wonder if they have sold themselves a big lie on what they are capable of doing. 

4. What advice do you have for writers?
Honesty, precision and authenticity. 

5. Where do you think the book publishing industry is heading?
I think in one way it's great that it is easy to publish these days- the down side being there is a lot of stuff out there to sift through. My hope is that people continue to look to books to keep the mind nimble and present as we be some more distracted. 

6. What challenges did you have in writing your book?
It was an absolutely emotional cage fight. The highs and lows were hard to manage at times... in fact after I wrote about my rise from homeless kid, to making a million dollars, becoming an addicted and losing it all, I walked away for about 6 months before writing again. 

7. If people can only buy one book this month, why should it be yours?
If someone can only buy one book this month they might want to focus on something a little more light- maybe a comedy?

Publishing and Publishers
“There has long been a love-hate relationship between authors and their publishers. While each agrees that one could not exist without the other, it frequently is not a relationship of mutual admiration and respect, to say the least. Few writers acknowledge their great debts to those who have published their work, and even fewer published acknowledge how dependent their lists are upon the writers whom they have published.” -- Helena Hjalmarsson
