I first became a fan of fantasy when I read The Hobbit many years ago and always vowed that I would one day write a fantasy novel of my own. The Sword of Ghespi is the first of many fantasy novels I plan to write and I have already begun my second.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I'm a very independent person. I simply like having control of my work. After all I did everything myself. I wrote it of course, but I also edited and drew the illustration either with a pencil or with the use of a paint program. As long as the whole project was mine anyway I figured I might as well publish it, too. Traditional publishing as far as I'm concerned wouldn't really give me any advantage. After all with the tablet, smart phones and computers being a means for people to read pretty much anything and get it at a lower price, epublishing just seems to be a good choice. I also like the fact that it better for mother earth since no trees are use to make paper. However for those that want to curl up with a good book I've also got that covered to and they can order my print on demand book.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I have always enjoyed storytelling, whether I'm telling the story or not and I've always loved fantasy novels. My greatest joy however is opening my imagination and using my creativity. I am an artist at heart. I love to write and draw and play music on the guitar. I love to entertain and have performed in front of live audiences with my guitar and voice. The bottom line is I like to make people happy. So whatever I can do to that end I will do.
