Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
An indie author provides freedom for the writer to handle his writing that keeps the writer involved in his own development. It seems to offer a chance to have an opportunity to try different type story lines with ease. I have written two very different books, and currently have a third which is something of a sequal to my first one. Another will be the second in sequence to my very different thriller.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
The contribution is somewhat hidden just now. I really need to take advantage of the many assists they offer. The offers appear to be tried and true directions. I need to get my hands off the keyboard, and on the marketing. Perhaps I need some form of agent.

This memor is an amalgam, episodic, almost historical, and nearly biographical. No one has read 'Livin PO' without smothering laughs or a gasped OMG!! Don't smother-enjoy. Not a Sunday School book, language is colorful, vintage country for the era and area. If you tire reading about some of the hard work, characters change with the various episodes so you won't lose the "thread" upon reopening.
