HI. I'm Peter. I live on stories. My stories are a reflection of my inner and outer reality, they're a baby that you the reader and I share. When I'm not writing or reading, you will likely find me singing along to music with my earphones on. I love to travel and swim. On good days (which is most days), I try to save a life or two.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
To be honest, I chose this path because in this generation, it is smarter! As a new kid on the block, I could have maybe spent lots of time, energy and money trying to get into traditional publishing, and though I am pretty confident I would have gotten that juicy publishing contract eventually, there's actually a better - easier- way. I had always suspected this and when I got to know of smashwords, I just knew I had found the holy grail. As an indie author, the flexibility, control and potential I have at my disposal is quite literally priceless.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Aggregation without aggravation! Initially, I was skeptical of Smashwords because of all the stringent rules with formatting, cover design, publishing and all the rest. But I came to find out it was the best thing that could ever happen to my publishing career. It's just like an office desk - clearing all the clutter and arranging everything is a hassle but you just watch how smoothly your work pans out once you've overcome that! Smashwords lets me concentrate on the part I love, the actual writing. The other stuff - distribution, marketing, and all what not - I just look in every once in a while. And I'm always pleased with what I see.
