Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I'm not writing, I like to spend time with my family. This includes three dogs and my horse, Athena.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Most of the e books I read come from authors I'm already reading in paper print. Especially after I moved to a very small town with little options for buying paper books.

Smashwords book reviews by Metamorph Publishing

  • Veiled Eyes on May 01, 2012

    I loved this book! It was a wonderful read. Excellent premise from the beginning, and the plot just kept twisting and kept the reader guessing! Would like to see more from these characters. Awesome job!
  • Smashwords Style Guide on Oct. 28, 2014

    This style guide was a complete blessing for me! It was so easy to get my formatting correct that my first book passed on the first try! And I knew next to nothing about Word! But I'd really like to see an updated edition: Word 2007 is impossible to find and Office 365 which I'm using now is very different! Nice job!
