Smashwords Interview

What do your fans mean to you?
Everything. I really do care about the materials I research and release to the public, and how that might affect someone. It is truly impossible to please everyone's sensibilities, but I really do care about the quality of my writing. It seems as though what I put in words is never good enough and find myself re-writing and editing over and over. It would please me so much to get as many reviews as possible. The feedback will be invaluable in knowing whether or not my intended message got through. That the people actually get it.
What are you working on next?
War Paint! A Pictorial History of the 4th Marine Division is a four volume series. I am very busy now getting volume one on line. That will be offered free of charge. I hope that will buy me some respect and recognition from you, the consumer, who will love my work so much that they will be not only compelled to give me a five star rating, but also buy Volumes II through IV, which I am currently preparing for release sometime during the Summer of 2015.

Smashwords book reviews by Theo Servetas

  • Witness to War: Truk Lagoon's Master Diver Kimiuo Aisek on May 17, 2015

    Witness to War brings to life the story of Kimiuo Aisek. Of all the books and documentaries I have experienced about the Pacific War, Diane Strong’s book is one of the best written human accounts of a young man who grew up at Chuuk Island under Japanese Mandate. This important story also bridges two distinct eras in Pacific Island culture, that tells of Kimiuo's business that put the history and legacy of Truk Lagoon on the world map, thus making him the international go-to for many serious explorers and documentary film producers.
