Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
The writing industry has changed so drastically over the years, just since the early 1980s. Maybe it was because of the advent of PC computing but as a result of rapid change, traditional publishers have become insensitive, more profit oriented and, increasingly selective about what they want. Good stories go overlooked or, just plain ignored everyday. Yet, no person can say whether a truly great story is among those not reaching the public. Further, now that self-publishing has become a major movement, traditional publishers are using it to screen stories. I was told by a publisher, that if a self-published writer can sell 15,000 copies of his own book, then they would seek to get that writer under contract. In the interim, they would publish the indie writer's book for an upfront fee. In my opinion, the method is no longer publishing for the sake of edifying or, entertaining the public; it is only another form of usury. I became an indie author simply because I don't want to be controlled by these forces but, do want to get my words out.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
All I can say is that, it has to be a toss up between Charles Dickens' "A Tale of Two Cities" and, Mark Twain's "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn." I read them both in grade school.
