Goodreads asked Gary Val Tenuta:

How do you get inspired to write?

Gary Val Tenuta Being a book cover designer, I usually create the cover for whatever book I'm going to write even before I begin writing it. Having the cover to look at inspires me to get started and to keep going until it's finished. No point having a book cover if I don't have a book! :-)

Movies also seem to inspire me.
