Smashwords Interview

WHY DID YOU SELF-PUBLISH?
After I wrote my first book, "Pray What God Says," I went scouting for publishers but at that time, the most popular genres were romance, science fiction, and horror. Even now, the popular books and bestsellers evolve around those genre. As a Christian writer, I didn't fit into the popular niche at that time. I was a bit discouraged but one day a friend suggested that I publish my book through Amazon as an ebook. For economy sake I did that. Then another friend told me about Smashwords.com. The great thing about Smashwords was they convert your manuscript to about 9 different formats and distribute your book to other online book retailers. And you are not limited to the type of devices you can use to read digital books. My book sold very, very well and became a bestseller for many months through Smashwords.

I realized that there are those who like to have that paper in their hand, dog-ear pages, bookmark, and highlight what they read. Since I couldn't publish in print without spending a lot of money, besides, I didn't have the financial resources, I decided to self-publish my paperback through an on-demand printing company called CreateSpace. I published my first print version of the book through them. I am so excited that I can make my books available in both formats: as an ebook for the digital type people and paperback for those who like to hold, dog-ear, bookmark, and highlight. They have been bestsellers, which is even more exhilarating. I am glad that I didn't sit back and wait until the popular genre changed to religion, I just listened to wise counsel and used the free resources that were available to help me get my books published.
WHY DOES YOUR WRITING FOCUS ON PRAYER?
I believe we should pray about everything. And when we do, then we should pray what God says. When we pray, if we know the word of God, what the word has promised to us, then we can use the word of God to pray more effectually. The scriptures should be a foundation for our prayers, so prayer will be more effective and the manifestation of every promise found in the covenant word will be ours. The scripture says "We have not because we ask not and we have not because we ask amiss." If we use the scriptures as the foundation for every facet of prayer we will not be asking amiss. Praying the scripture puts God in remembrance of His word. When we pray His word He honors His word.
