Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
Even though my first book, a contemporary murder mystery titled Murder in Devon, reached semi-finalist in the Penguin/Amazon Breakthrough novel contest, I still found it hard in Australia at the time to get a publisher. I was published with an Indie publishing house in the US, and have been Indie published since. I'm happy to work with a good publisher, while self publishing the stories not suitable for my publisher's list. The creative freedom of self-publishing really appeals. And the fact that I can get the books out to readers really fast. It's a new venture for me, we'll see how it goes.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Certainly, with a few of my previous novels! I'm looking forward to working more closely with Smashwords.

Smashwords book reviews by Maggi Andersen

  • Wednesday's Child on Nov. 14, 2017

    I am an avid reader of Rosemary Morris' series. Saunton and Amelia come to this story with some history. I first thought because of her grandmother's overwhelming influence, Amelia might not develop into the person she was meant to be. But she is thrown into a household filled with young women, and pets, something she has never experienced. And with the skilful handling of the author, we follow Amelia's journey and Saunton's. Now Amelia's guardian, Saunton is a stickler for what is correct, and he is burdened with financial worries, a widowed mother, and sisters he must guide safely to the altar. Could two such unlikely characters fall hopelessly in love? A rocky road lies ahead. Rosemary Morris brings the era alive with her beautiful prose and accurate historical details. A great read!
