Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
We had put together the book, My Whispers of Horror, in hopes to increase the profile on an important human rights abuse in ex-USSR nations. Women are often marginalized and mistreated in that part of the world, and often are still seen as though they belong in the kitchen. Even politicians have said as much! There has even been television broadcasts discussing how it is a women's own fault that she is abused.

This is a very serious issue and must be addressed, which is extroardinarily complicated when you have a nation that has its government combatting against organizations that defend women's equality... all while promoting organizations that work against that very aspiration. We must stand up and help women around the world, or else they may eventually suffer everywhere once more.
What motivated you to become a publisher?
To help better the world. There has always been a problem of sitting on the sidelines while atrocities occur, and I had never wished to be someone that does this. So we took action. We, a husband and wife team, started a publishing house with the very purpose of changing the world through awareness and fund raising campaigns by use of our book publishing efforts.
