K.M. Spires


Hi, everyone! Thanks for taking the time to read this bio. I’ll try to keep it short.

I’m an independent author from Texas. I rock the whole “wife and mother” thing, too, but you don’t care about that. You’re here for the stories. I began self-publishing in 2011. When it comes to writing, I prefer the paranormal genre, but I’ll read just about anything. There are so many authors whose work I enjoy that I can’t point out any specific influence.

I am currently wrapping up the third book in my Watcher in the Darkness series. You can read what I have so far on my personal website.

Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
The freedom to write whatever I wanted when I wanted. The traditional publication process was so daunting and discouraging. I figured it was better to put my work out there, even if only a handful of people ever read it. The alternative was no one would ever read it at all. I know it's very hard to succeed as an indie author, but not trying is a foolproof plan for failure.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
The more places you make your book available, the more chances you have to be discovered.
