Smashwords Interview

What do you like about writing and publishing?
I love writing and reading stories. I have an entrepreneur side to me that likes owning my own business. Indie publishing today allows one to wear both hats within a reasonable budget.
What do you like about your authors?
I like an author who has an edge and who breaks with convention. I have a quirky side to me and I look for that in authors. I look for authors who say the things I can't say.

  • Big Black Shiny Boots on Oct. 19, 2011
    star star star star
    A great little story. I would have paced it faster a bit by leaving out a couple of words or rewording the scene where he gets out of the car. Also I didn't get how the "victims" wound up in jars on her cupboard.
  • Lot Seven on Oct. 19, 2011
    star star star
    Good story. I wanted a little more atmosphere. What was the room like. Just a little, maybe a sentence or 2. And a tad more description of the men being auctioned, maybe 1 or two naked.
  • House Arrest on Oct. 19, 2011
    star star star star
    I liked the premise. Guarding a young punk under house arrest. It conjures up all kinds of interesting situations. In a longer story there can be all kinds scenarios where the prisoner tries to outwit the guard. Perhaps this can be the start of a series. I didn't like this sentence: "He flexed the muscles of his entrance" Just come out and say what you mean.

    I'm wondering why did he kill a perfectly good dog? Did I miss something? The writing is fine, but I don't get the story.
