What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
After letting my writing get cold for a couple weeks I then go back and read the story again. This time I'm not looking for mistakes I am looking for content and readability. The real joy I get then is asking myself if I really wrote this as a lot of times a sentence, in my opinion, is so good that I have doubt about my writing it. This gives me a lot of joy as I know I did actually write it.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I haven't considered my writing as a success yet. The only way I can judge my writing efforts will be in the number of readers and their reviews.

What an idea. Using actual witch trials from early America and taking the results forward for hundred of years and putting a Wizard to work for the National Security Agency. The ability to open any door, enter a crowded room unseen and exit with valuable evidence without leaving a trace is unbelievable but so sometimes necessary. A person or Wizard with these talents are not replaceable.

Horse of a Different Color (The Mecana Series Part One)

The detective is a bulldog that just will not let go. Threats of being fired, sued and belittled have little or no effect on his pursuit or his determination to solve the case. Lack of support by upper echelon, all the way to the top, seem to spirit his determination to prove he is right in his suspecting a certain person of the crimes. I recommend this book and hope you will be entertained as I was.
