Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
Like the industrial revolution changed the manufacturing process forever, and made goods more accessible to more people, I believe e-publishing is doing the same for artistic ideas, be they books, films, music or art. E-publishing is making books available to everyone and providing an amazing level of diversity never before seen.

In ten years time print books will be a rarity, and top earning authors will not start from being published in hardcopy via a traditional top six publisher, but will be 'picked up' based on how many e-copies they sell first. I'm part of that generation of authors. I can't live in the past way of doing things, so I'm 'going indie.'
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
My imagination is on overdrive all the time. I love my ability to create worlds, whole universes, and tell the stories of characters I create and care about in these settings. I love writing and I don't have any other reason to why I write than because I love to write. I just want to get it all out there.

I just hope my ideas appeal to readers, and that they get the sense of wonder and amazement I do when I create my stories.
