Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I first started writing in 2013 after graduating from high school. I loved the fact that so many great books like "Harry Potter" by J.K Rowling and "Twilight" by Stephenie Meyer became such huge film block busters. To be honest, writing was never my no. 1 choice. But I decided to get into after I realized that I could share my stories without having to wait for movie deals. The problem however, was that I had never written in my life except essays at school. So I began reading books by other writers / authors to learn from them. It wasn't until I read "The Host" by Stephenie Meyer that I began writing. It wasn't easy at first, but the more I wrote, the more I got the hang of it.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
The fact that most traditional publishers are biased and would rather ignore you than published your book. The few traditional publishers I have been to all wanted me to make unpreferable changes to my book that I did not agree with. It's better to do it yourself, at least that way I have full control of my work.
