Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I first published as an indie author after several rejections came back from agents stating that the paranormal market was flooded, and they couldn't take any more on. That was in 2011. Once I delved into the world of indie publishing I ended up not looking back, because I loved the control I have over my final product. I also love being able to get my books out to the public at a faster pace than I could achieve through traditional publishing.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords has definitely helped me reach a wider audience, and I believe their inclusion of my werewolf novel, Shadows of the Ancients, in a thumb drive distributed from a few different events in 2013 helped boost the sales of that book, and the following three in the series, tremendously.

Smashwords book reviews by Moonlit Dreams Publications

  • The Gifts (Vol 1- The Gifts: Trilogy) on July 26, 2011

    I was immediately drawn into Nahla's story, from her unusual birth and upbringing to the secret she can't seem to keep hidden. Nahla's story, while superbly entertaining and engaging, was not the only one told. I was swept away by the back story of how the Gifts came to be and how they got to where they ended up. I absolutely love to read novels that have multiple layers, as this one does. The author did an amazing job pulling the stories together in a smooth, easy read that keeps you turning pages. Aside from the story within a story there are the multi-dimensional characters. Even as certain characters discover more about themselves than meets the eye, the author also keeps them very human. Their hopes, dreams, concerns and fears all have that human edge to them that some authors tend to loose when they start giving out powers to their characters. There are a few issues in the book that can be attributed to e-book formatting problems, however; Patria Dunn Rowe is such an amazing storyteller that they are easily overlooked. The tale she tells is simply too captivating to put down. One final note, while I wouldn't call this book a YA novel, I will say that I wouldn't be opposed to my teenage daughter reading it. I think, this book in particular, is great for high school age and beyond. I already have the second book in this series, Signs and Wonders. I can't wait to get started on it, because The Gifts will definitely leave you wanting more... more answers, more romance, and more Gifts!
  • Don't Fear the Reaper on Dec. 05, 2011

    Dark and exquisitely beautiful! My first impression upon opening this book was: Best first chapter in a novel - Ever! Michelle Muto hooked me from word one and kept me gripped until the end. This is a beautifully written dark tale of life, death, and everything that comes after. It was absolutely mesmerizing. This is hands down, one of the best books of 2011! From the opening chapter that all authors should learn from, to the bittersweet ending, Don't Fear the Reaper will keep your heart on edge as you continue to turn the pages.
