Smashwords Interview

How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I love that Smashwords offers so many formats of my books. They also send my books to other retail booksellers, thus saving me time from having to do so!
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
One of the greatest joys of writing is that I get to entertain others with stories that entertain me (inside my head) all the time ;) The best part is when I hear back from a reader that they enjoyed one of my books because it makes putting the story down on "paper" and getting it out there all the more worth it.
