Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I'd been writing professionally for over five years (now close to a decade), passing through a couple of early e-publishers and article sites. I was sick and tired of not getting noticed by agents or publishers and decided to go through outlets like Amazon Kindle and Smashwords.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Not so much my success at this point, but I do love the fact they are giving certain authors opportunities they would not get anywhere else. That's always good.
