Publisher info

Irwin Hills Photography is owned by J&M Irwin which is the pseudonym for husband and wife writing team, Jackie and Mike Irwin. This couple may come from separate parts of the United States, but they are united in tandem storytelling. The first book of the Edensville High Series has been on Jackie's heart to write for many years, but it took the encouragement of her best friend, Mike, to write it down and write it down she did! When working with your best friend its not like work at all!
Jackie is also a published author of a self help book under the pseudonym Jackie Tramel called Shelved: Waiting on God, Waiting on You. Through the EHS work, the couple hope to reach the young people (and adults) that think they must first be clean before they come to Jesus.
The two reside in their beloved south just outside of Nashville, Tn where they enjoy the love and encouragement of not only each other, but their family, friends and granddaughter whom they call LoVeY.

Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
It truly seemed the best route for the Edensville High Series. God had given the beginnings of it to Jackie years ago, but it took the added elements of Mike to give it life. Being able to write what is given to us by God is a valuable thing. Yes, it's based on true life events that happened thousands of years ago, but how can we relate those Biblical things to the busy lives that we have today? Where some mainstream publishers, agents or distributors would balk at the thought of taking something so controversial and getting on board, indie publishing allowed us to do what we have been called to do. Share the Word through real life stories to help people relate in a real sense. Thus helping them to have a relatable relationship with God, a more intimate feeling that He didn't just drop us off to fend for ourselves, but He is always with us.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords allowed us to utilize our other God given talents and the talents of those around us. By allowing us to produce our own cover, we were able to take the picture that God had given us the vision for and not rely on someone that has no relation to the book, never read it or probably never will. Smashwords helped us to bring to life the characters by affording us to luxury of it. We were then able to choose and set our own prices, where young adults could afford them.
