Interview with Marquis Syler

What motivated you to become an indie author?
After reading several blogs and articles from many self-published authors sparked my interest and started me down the path to become an indie author. The other factor was it's easier to protect my copyright without hiring a lawyer to wade through a publisher's contract. I have more control with the final product and higher royalities.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Telling the story. The art of creating characters and plot fascinates me.
What are you working on next?
After The Finger Of Suspicion was published in print form many readers wanted me to create a series. I may do that, but currently I'm completing some short stories for anthologies published by Centum Press.
Who are your favorite authors?
R.B Parker, Michael Creighton, Tom Clancy, Terry Goodkind, Michael Connelly, P.D James are my favorites, but I read other authors too.
