Louise A.S.

Biography

Louise A.S. is a Filipino Part-time Writer from Metro Manila, Philippines. She prefers writing stories with easy to read content and with simple plots. Mainly inspired by teen and young adult themes, as well as stories available to career-oriented individuals who like reading pocketbooks with a mix of English and Filipino words and phrases in the stories.

Some of her stories were distributed in Hong Kong, Singapore, the Middle East, and Italy years before for the Filipinos who are fans of Filipino-English pocketbooks, and now the stories have been revised to be enjoyed by the current generation in a world of technological innovation and young adult themes.

Her stories do not include erotic content so readers of any ages are free to check it out. Except that for some of her stories focused on Teen Readership, parents are also encouraged to read her teen stories. Parental guidance is still advised because some teens might be able to relate to some teen issues. Otherwise, Louise's stories are fun to read.

Smashwords Interview

Describe yourself.
I'm an ambivert person.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I was a self-published author a long time ago and sold my books thru a certain bookstore in the Philippines. I also had my stories distributed to Italy, Hong Kong, and the Middle East through wholesale distributors. When I found out about e-book, I checked all possible websites that offer e-book publishing. So, I thought of going into e-book but at the same time have my printed books available only for ordering/delivery. I admit that it is very expensive to have your stories published through your own efforts: spend more on electricity (as I spend more time in front of the computer almost everyday, more than 8 hours a day), printing cost, marketing, etc. At least my efforts paid off during those times, knowing that some of my stories had become bestsellers (that was before wattpad was introduced.)

The content of my stories are easy to read, with simple plots, and with a mix of Filipino and English languages for the benefit of Filipino readers. Being an indie author excites me as I can have my stories published in any format I choose, in whatever theme, and wherever I prefer this to be distributed.

I'm quite new to e-book publishing and preparing manuscripts is quite different from what local publishers require so I had my share of frustrations when I converted my manuscripts based on the e-book publishers' instructions. I had practically spent days and a few weeks trying to get this right.

Since there are so many Filipinos overseas who love to read fiction stories, I wanted to try out publishing online so that my stories could reach them wherever they may be.
