Consuelo Saah Baehr

Biography

Writer, mother, friend. Joined Twitter because Mark Coker told me to and I think Smashwords is like the nanny you wished you had. Smashwords held my hand while I published five books on their site or whatever it is. I even sold a book the first day. The Smashwords Style Guide gave me the courage to take my excellent back-list books and format them for the ebook business. My brain used to only work from 8 a.m to 9 a.m. but since I learned to format and upload and twitter (thanks to Smashwords) my brain works well into the late afternoon.
I used to be a happy lazy ex-writer and now I'm an industrious, ambitious and joyful virtual bookstore owner. Thank you Smashwords.
