Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I'm a storyteller. Whether I'm in a bar with friends or sitting around the camp fire with a bunch of kids roasting hot dogs and marsh mellows... I love to spin a good fable. I live to see the look in someone's eyes when I tell them what happened and when and where and why. It's the same rush I get when I finish a new novel or a fresh batch of poems. So when someone buys my work, I feel like you're my new friend and I've got a great story that I'd love to share with you...
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I honestly tried to do things the 'traditional' route but right now the old school route to publishing is broken. Right now agents will not represent anyone who isn't already published and publishers won't speak to any writers unless they are represented by an agent. For new, unpublished authors, that's one hell of a Catch 22. I literally sent out hundreds of letters looking for representation, and fell flat every time. All the time I use chasing agents could be and is better spent writing more books, which is why I chose to work with Smashwords.
