Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
My first publication was a letter to the editor in a well-known national newspaper in Germany.

Had to be short of course, but the large circulation was something I was proud of, still am !
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
It has allowed me to make material available to a new audience and hopefully, it will grow from here too.

Smashwords book reviews by Glenn Brigaldino

  • Sunny Day Motel on Sep. 27, 2017

    This micro-story has a nice ending point, but seems to be missing a front piece (setting the stage, build-up). Style is readable but could be more refined (just as the fonts). Overall, a quick and enjoyable read.
