Interview with Elaine Shuel

Published 2014-01-13.
When did you first start writing?
I've been writing since 2005. it started as a hobby but has become my primary source of income.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
There are some advantages over having a traditional publisher. They include controlling where my books are sold, determining the sales price and even designing my own book covers. There is more work involved in being self published, things that I didn't have to worry about when some of my stories were published in printed digests by a publisher. There's always a trade-off.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords has distributed my ebooks to major retailers, letting my books get noticed by more readers. Unfortunately as an erotica author, there are some retailers that have yet to list many or in some cases, any of my stories. I hope that in time, Smashwords will ensure that all my books are up for sale at all the retailers they distribute to.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
When I'm in the midst of writing a story, it's as if the characters take on a life of their own. I get excited by the ideas that inspire me and anxious to find out how it all plays out.
