Smashwords Interview

How did you become a smashwords author? What are your unforgettable things related to it?
Well. My first work was "Cycle". I wrote it on a paper in my native language. My own satisfaction was the intention Behring that story writing. I already knew about smash words and other inline sites which published the works of independent authors. But all of them insisted that the books should be submitted in word .doc format or PDF. I don't have a PC or laptop. After completing the writing of 'Cycle' I changed my status in Facebook to the job of a writer. Jeff McDargh(a smashwords author) asked me whether I have really wrote a boom. I said 'yes'. He said he wants to read it. I said I wrote it in my mother tongue and it will take sometime to translate it into English. He said 'no rush'. From that day I began to translate the story and entered it into my phone's notepad app. One day he suggested me the WPS android app which enables to make a .doc document. From the day I installed that app, I began to enter the story into that app and completed the story in a .doc format. All of my works are done in my "Karbonn Smart" android phone.
Later I submitted to smash words and I began an indie writer as well as a smashwords author.

Smashwords book reviews by Adarsh

  • Faceless on Oct. 23, 2014

    Hi Crystal Coons, your story was good. Better luck for you as a first time editor. Wish you luck for your future endeavors. Try to write long stories/novels. Because it will help to root tight the characters in readers mind. Waiting for more from you. Good Luck
  • The Lifers - A Ghost Story on Jan. 10, 2015

    Hi Edgar, it was (The Lifers) was a good story which really really gave me a feel of watching a movie like Frozen, Wind chill or something. I felt the same feeling in reading this story. Its good. Very good. It has a movie or short film quality. But the only problem I confront is that the language. many sentence make me to read twice or thrice. I don't know if it is my poverty in English language or more.
  • Castigation on Jan. 10, 2015

    100%. yes you maintained the suspense until the end. Very good
  • Jacob's Closet on Jan. 23, 2015

    JACOB'S CLOSET Yes. its a good story with an unexpecting twist. But there was a problem. You have to assemble all those stories in one book or just put Part l part ll on the books. Otherwise the readers will read the second part at first or third part at second. The story writing was good except some spelling mistakes. But no problem they could be solved if you read the story once again before submitting it. You can alter these mistakes by uploading an updated version through dashboard facility in SMASHWORDS. Like your every story it also carried a twist. A big twist that I couldn't expect. But if anyone read the last page of the story(Though its a bad habit) they twist won't work for them. So do something in your upcoming stories so that no one could break the twist by reading the end par directly. I HIGHLY RECOMEND THE READERS THAT: YOU SHOULD READ "LOVE AND SECRETS".
  • The Walk on Feb. 24, 2015

    The walk. One of the short stories that I had read. It mainly concentrated on a character-Greg- at his middle age and the thoughts about his younger age while he was on a walk with his childhood friend, who really doesn't like him as he was a bully to them past days. The story goes on the way to a ghost story and he dies. After a few words, it revealed as a non-ghost story and what to say, you read that interesting part.
  • Manhunt How Long Can You Run on March 13, 2015

    Manhunt: How Long Can You Run. This was my first experience with a 'back in time' book. Really thought provoking. The story is described in 6 pages(ePub) but essential for speeding up the readers heartbeat in the last pages. Good ending, the readers will hope for climax which is contrary to the climax stated in it, but the reader also know, it will not wise to add any other type of climax than the climax used by the author. Good luck, Colin D Grimes Five stars * * * * *
  • Special Moments on March 13, 2015

    I'm excited to read.
  • In the Shadow on March 19, 2015
    (no rating)
    A good work from the author. This book renewed an old dream that I had in my childhood. Thanks for publishing such a nice work. Keep it up.
  • So ... What Next? on March 19, 2015

    Well, I think it has some familiarities with the "Two States" by Chetan Bhagat. The story was good in the first few parts but after that every incidents was described in narrow which was supposed to be elaborated. So far as I think, this story has the plot of a novella or even novel. But you limited it to the boundaries of a novelette. And, infact, I can't believe how Sapna cancelled her fixed marriage which has to happen after10 or 11 days. I think the author should have elaborated that part. And the reason for the break of the main characters are not described and merely states that broke the trust. It would be more attractive if you added that incident too. It is sure that the readers are able to understand Nitin broke the trust. But how he did that,what was the reasons...etc are not stated. I feel that there were some missing parts in this story. Well after all it was good to read.
  • Erotically Yours - 2 Erotic Tales on March 24, 2015

    1. Getting His Way Was good for erotic theme. Hardcore erotic theme. It is sufficient to wake the thing. But my opinion is that, you should've concentrated on the main story also. Here, I think, you just concentrated on the sexual portion 95% for erotic theme and 5% for the main story theme. Don't do that. There should have 100% erotic and 100% main theme(the crucial point that I couldn't keep at my book). If you just concentrated on the erotic part, it will be merely a porn story. The characters will not get the attention of the readers. The readers will read , shake it and eject. I hope that's not you want your readers to do. So let the readers make a bond with the characters and the main story. IN ASSOCIATION with the main story, add the erotic portion. I hope you'll win and the characters and incidents (both erotic and the main theme incidents) will stick to the readers mind. {I here divided it as erotic theme and main theme for the purpose of understanding them easily. Surely both are the main part.) Good luck for your further story writing. 2. Storm Stayed, the theme of which had a wide scope. In my view, it can also be continued as a romantic love story. Its a mild erotic story when compared to the first one. I think the author (Zara Sutton) must have spend a little more time than that spend for "Getting His Way"(at least I felt so). The story telling was good at the first few parts. Well actually there was a sudden ending. You could have extend the story. The character formation was better than the first one. Moreover I prefer this one than the former.
  • Shadows on March 24, 2015

    BRAVE ATTEMPT You left no chance to the critics to oppose against the theme of this story. It was a new concept about shadows. Well good read. No ghostly feeling (don't know positive or negative:) ). Good luck. It was a good read than SO WHAT NEXT?( may be because I'm not so much interested in romance or might be because I love mysterious articles)God Bless for your future endeavors.
  • Love @ 7 on March 26, 2015

    Love@7 The title let the readers to assume that it is a story which states the love happened at 7th grade or at the age of seven. But the reality is quite different. When it comes to the story, the theme was good. But you should've concentrated on elaborating the conversation between Mayank and Ananya. If you had did so, it would penetrate more emotionally in the readers mind. And one thing, should not use & as a short form to the word 'and' while writing a story. Everything except these were good. Best of Luck
  • No Leads to the Killer on March 28, 2015

    No Leads To The Killer is a short, crime detective fiction story which portrays a crime that happened in 1927 when the help of forensic science was too poor to help the law enforcement field. The name of the story "No Leads To The Killer" frightened me whether this story would end as unsolved. But after the ¾ of the story is completed, Sheriff Taylor finds the killer by applying just a fake trick. The story was not so thrilling to read for the ¾ portion but the remaining ¼ was super thrilling. And I loved the climax scene. But the problem I found was that there was only one person who is subject to be suspected. This cause the readers to fix the killer. But the positive in it is that. Is he the real killer? No leads and no evidence against him. But a trick exposes it all. I found it brilliant. I mark this short story as one which if I hadn't read, it would be a loss to my living.
  • The Graveyard's Retribution on April 01, 2015

    (+)The book cover suits ideally to the theme of the story. (+)The scene/portion where Cybil's grandmother...Cybil's passed out grandmother...came to the cemetery on an ice cream van was so good and so scary.(especially the slow movement) (-)Who is Henry Jonas? At first he was expressed in a few portions, at last his death/ghost leads the scenes of retribution only because Bradley wrote something on Henry's grave. BAD. (-)The ending was not good. It managed raised above an average level. (-)If you add Henry's retribution in addition to that of Cybil's grandmother's, then you could also add other ghosts/corpse which lies in that graveyard as Bradley also jerked their gravestones.
  • The Locked Room on April 22, 2015

    There are some stories which gives a way or hint to authors for another story. That is, an idea generating one. The story was good at the first few portions. But it collapsed at the end. No reason for the cause that had happened in the building. The protagonist hears dome noises and ran from there. So I'm not satisfied with the climax. You should have expand the story a little bit. The line: "Walking to the door you can smell the flowers and what seems to be the smell of fresh made bread. I thought that someone could have been making something in the house giving me a surprise welcome. Though when I open the door to the house there is no one there, and not only was no one there the smell of bread was gone." Was perfect. Really idea provoking. It affected me in some way. Good luck.
  • Together Forever on April 22, 2015

    A nice short horror-not a scarring one- story. The author did a good work to made a twist for the story in the last few lines.
  • Mojave 733-9969 on April 08, 2016

    Story that went on with excitement and tension with the end a little confusing and the climax an expected unexpected one.
  • The Hypnotist on April 20, 2016

    This is my opinion as a reader. . Well, the Hypnotist was... what to say... a mysterious story. A woman gets an unusual fobia (well... not so unusual) from her childhood experience that her mother was died out of some infection or by some bacteria. And it leads to that particular fobia. For the treatment she approaches a hypnotist who then leads her through weird hallucinations and such which dominated a good portion of the story except the fact that title and copyright and about the author pages covered the half of the total pages. That's not bad at all. Is it??? And the end disappointed me a little. Why did he do that??? And I personally didn't like that climax. And one more thing that I felt was that, the story lacked a bond between the beginning and end.. Like the story started somewhere and ended somewhere else with no relation to the theme. The cover image gets connection to the end. A good one. Whatever, the best thing was that the reading was fun and interesting and won't let you take a break from it untill you finish reading.
  • Driven to Death on April 20, 2016

    All I've to say is never judge this book by its cover. A good short story, described well with a minimal number of words and will let you read more works by this author. (Me too going to read).
  • Living Among Wasps on May 02, 2016

    Living among the wasps. A well written short detective story far from the conventional detective stories as a convict is the one who guessing the criminal intents and thereby helping the cops. Critically, the opening was grand but the result was not so grand. Thanks to the author for making it a series. I'm going to read the other two books in the series.
  • The Colossal Crutch on May 02, 2016

    The colossal crutch Another good deduction from behind the bars. This time, solving a an inmate's problem. Compared to the first book in this series, I suspected the culprit. :) so that reduces one star. The ending was good and funny. Keep going. :)
  • The Sentient Soldier on May 02, 2016

    The sentient soldier A story about human instincts, minute emotions and kindness would never die even in a brainwashed mind and what if the enemy make use of such emotions.
  • Night Watchman on May 02, 2016

    The night watchman A story with spine chilling events, a not so satisfactory turn out and climax. The way to the climax was really breathtaking. Yes. The atmosphere was awesome.
  • On The Beach on May 04, 2016

    On the Beach. It was a fine read. I enjoyed very well. Good narration and the writer's carefulness to give importance on relatively small things was also good. A kind of books that I'd suggest to my friends.
  • The case of Marcel - Mystery short story on May 05, 2016

    The Case of Marcel Wow, we just lost a fine reader there in the story.
  • My Two Sons on May 05, 2016

    My Two Sons The story of a family of father and two sons in which the elder son befriends with a evil character and tries to kill the younger one to get his body. The fed up father somehow manage to put his son on fire and PRESTO!!! The story was said indirectly through a tape recording of the father, which was a relatively new innovation and according to my view, the author succeeded in that. A good read.
  • The Last Survivor on May 16, 2016

    The Last Survivor Rating :2.8 Here's another twist maker. You got it.when comes to think about it broadly, the author has a great vision over the animal kingdom too. They also have emotions but the fact is we don't care is the summary I got from this piece of work. I couldn't have expect the twist but I read the climax first. A fine read.
  • The Bridge on May 22, 2016

    The Bridge I Rate it : 1.1 Its mysterious
