Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I have studied the publishing industry since the age of 12. I watched as publishing houses went under, especially with the advent of the Internet. They also drastically reduced support and services for authors, particularly new and "undiscovered" authors. These days traditional publishing houses still take up to 85% from each sale while the author is expected to do much of the legwork involved: promotion, marketing and sales. I actually investigated self-publishing in the early nineties to discover it was a costly venture. These days, it's as easy as the click of a button (well, almost that easy.)
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The creation of characters and different worlds. Imagining each scene then getting it down on paper (or computer.)
