Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
The story behind my latest book is actually some of my life experiences in discovering who and what I am, and how and why I've become what I am today. By sharing this, I may give someone a new angle on how to view on self and the life one have CHOSEN to live.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
The motivation to be an indie author was when I realized how easy it was to publish a book as "print on demand" for very little money. E-books was not so popular at that time. The indie part came, when I found out, that I need to have the exclusive rights to my work and not share the rights with some publisher.

Selvudvikling betyder, at selvet bevidst vælger at udvikle sig. Det er selve det at vælge at gøre det, der sætter processen i gang.

Self-development is very much about getting recognition of what you are a part of. It is about getting an overview and seeing a consistency in your life.
