Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
Being an author is actually quite new to me. The Decline of Western Society is my first book. I am unfortunately not able to make a living of writing (not yet, at least!), but am still working in a manager position full time in the field of private security services.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
It’s called The Decline of Western Society – Striving for Survival and Success. My initial thought and motivation was to share my frustration about the state of things everywhere in the world, but soon my rather aggressive writing turned into a more serious project.
Fear not, the book is as objective and professional as possible. No clueless rambling there!
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I wouldn’t know what most consider unusual. I love writing and do it whenever I have time and energy for it. I guess what most could find unusual is that I tend to try to write my initial text in as final format as possible. I avoid writing anything I intend to edit ten times over in the future anyway.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
As for my writing style, it is impossible to name any, for it is probably the combination of everything I’ve ever read!
As for the content, I’d like to give a shout out to Robert Kiyosaki and Mr. Money Mustache.
What are you working on now?
Besides marketing my debut work, my second book. It will be a compilation of novellas. The plots will revolve around money and finance, and the themes will be both educational and occasionally gloomy as well.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
In all honesty, I wouldn’t know yet! This is something I am still working on and trying to get better at.
The number one project would be getting more exposure for my social media on Twitter and Instagram, as well as for my website https://www.thedeclineofwesternsociety.com
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Just start. Avoid procrastinating. Being able to finish projects is what separates the ones who actually want to succeed from the ones not in it for the long term.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Always survive, yet never feel satisfied by mere survival. Aim for true success!

What’s next for you as a writer?
I aim to finish my second book quicker than my first one, which took almost one year. I started writing my second book today (July 1st), so I will be setting my goal for Christmas.
