Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
The story is one of justice. Having worked in universities/colleges I saw a lot of power plays, people were selfish and wanted to be control, often to rort the system for their advantage, whether thats material or ideological. You had friends and allies, or you didn't. Mostly allies, shifting allies. When something tremendous happens, as it did with Mark, allies not only abandon you, but readily distance themselves or, worse, turn against you.
I was also sick and tired of hearing the political correctness in an institution that was supped to question so-called gospel "truths", and pushed a women-only, victim mentality, without acknowledging the erotic capital young girls hold, and know how to use. There was a great miscarriage of justice with Mark. So I wanted to set the record straight, not just about Mark but about what girls desire, do, can be, and how they use their erotic capital.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
It's free and easy. It gets the message out there quickly, to a larger audience, and at a very cheap price. While I still love to curl up in bed with the feel of a book, I am a convert, and see myself equally at home with an e-reader.
