Interview with Jeremiah Jackson

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I'd tell people stories about the crazy stuff that happened at work, and like so many always used to say, "I could write a book about this." So I did. It took several years and I did it for me, not to make money. Going Indie publishing saves me the soul-destruction I'd no doubt suffer if I tried to get a mainstream publishing deal.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I sold my first copy of the book here! They beat the other channels. They also helped to to make sure the book was market-ready with formatting, to get it out there and make it professional.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Sharing the tales of things that have happened to me. I love to read about others' lives and always feel that when you tell a story right, it is interesting.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Working at my day job and adventuring with my wife!
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Browse the charts and look for recommended links. You learn fast that how many copies a book has sold isn't necessarily and indicator of quality.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I have a kindle, but also a tablet which gets more use in low light.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a medium-wealthy town in England, and this is where I based the story, even though a lot of the events happened in other towns.
When did you first start writing?
Did all that really happen?!
This is the question I got most from people who proofed the book. Yes, it did.
