Interview with Ann Chiappetta

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I wanted to find out if the rumors that the first book is the hardest to publish were true. What I mean by that statement is that I needed to test myself, find out if I could handle the pressure and stress of being a published author. I am glad to say that the experience has been wonderful and I’ve proven to myself that I could do it.
