Publisher info

JD Lovil was born in the small Town (population 795) of Lockesburg in the southwestern Arkansas, in the year of 1957. That was the year of the first canine cosmonaut. Enjoying early life as Farm Hand, Assistant or Slave, he learned just enough about hand labor, mechanics, metalwork, plumbing and electrical work to be dangerous, and far more than he ever wanted to know about many other unpleasant tasks. Enduring the slings and arrows that is childhood, he eventually entered into University life, where he dabbled in biology, Physics and Computer Science before settling on a major in Chemistry. Surviving many fine adventures over the years, and after having been rumored to be an agent for the Arcturian anti-movement movement, the Author has settled into the Phoenix Metro Area in Arizona, where he hopes to avoid life's complications.

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
The latest book that I have published on Smashwords is 'Vanguard of Man'. It is a story about an Earth which has suffered a few of the more probable world-wide disasters (Financial collapse, Totalitarian governments, volcanic eruptions causing the return of the ice age) with the loss of most of the supple lines needed to survive.
In the story, the last scientific community designs and develops the tech for generational colony spacecraft to transport the survivors to other star systems. The Vanguard are modified human crew for those ships. Strong, super-intelligent and hard to kill, they are perfect for the job, but are they still human?
This Earth is one of many possible Earths that I will address in related books, each one existing in one of the many universes predicted by the Many Worlds Theory.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I had considered writing for many years. In fact, I had written various short stories and poetry over the years, but had never published, due to the many obstacles that one faces in the traditional publication process.
A couple of years ago, I discovered that the Indie publication process presented by such institutions as Smashwords and Amazon made the process realistic now, and proceeded to publish my little heart out.
As to what motivated me to become an indie author, I think that I must give the common answer. I write because I must. There are truths that each of us possess, and which we discover to our shock other people do not know. Like most writers, I want to give a gift of unique knowledge to my readers. Indie publication makes that possible.
