What's the story behind your latest book?
I was sitt'n at the desk in the backroom. It poped in my head for some reason. I guess that I was spend'n so much time stuck in the house alone but I was do'n stuff on the web to help people. That I relized you can make a difference with out see'n the people your help'n and wanted to make a book to reach people with this realization, that no matter what situation they're in they can still do someth'n. I wrote they idea down and around August or ended in August of 2012; there was a need to just write this book. After finish'n a poem I've been working on once a month for this 3rd year; I wrote down a plot line. Then in the summer of 2013 I finally looked up info on how to write a novel and when I felt ready. I just decided I was go'n to do it and over the next five months; about an hour a day for five days a week. I got it done and spent about two months do'n the same learn'n for the Smashwords Style Guide, after realize'n my book was to small for print and I needed an ebook company. Then I eventually found a page to design my cover image and made my own design. And will be a better artist for it all.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
At first my book was to small for print. Then I found out major companies will alter you book and I want my stories to stay the way I wrote them.
