Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I became an indie author to follow the LAW: If you want something done well, do it yourself. And this only happened because nearly all of my experiences with online publishers have been bad ones: that is, I'm one of those writers who have truly struggled to be published. For me, the road to get my books, The Silurian series, out to readers has been a genuine battle. So, after being treated like dirt by the online publishers I signed contracts with, I said, No more! The Silurian is far too important to me to just hand over to others to manipulate for their own ends, then eventually, shafting me again. I knew all along that The Silurian was independent writing right from the beginning, and would never fit the requirements of publishers, whether traditional or online.
What are you working on next?
Well, I'm writing the final edition to The Silurian series: King of the Future. This 'book' is actually part two of the final, Last Man to Avalon. Part One is already published, The Wounded Bear. Yet after I have finished King of the Future, I have no idea where to go next. If at all. I've been writing The Silurian now for ten years, and I'm exhausted by the effort, the passion and pain and dedication has worn me out, almost! Yet I get ideas for new books almost every day...
