Smashwords Interview

Who are your favorite authors?
Vine Deloria, James Loewen, and Jack Forbes for history, Noam Chomsky for political analysis. For fiction, I grew up reading mostly science fiction, the old classic authors, Asimov, Clarke, Clifford Simak. I later enjoyed authors like Henry Miller and William Burroughs, partly because I saw their influence on punk rock, which was also a big influence on me.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Just being glad to be alive and enjoying my work, both writing and teaching.

Smashwords book reviews by Al Carroll

  • Smashwords Style Guide on July 10, 2016

For anyone who is not already tech savvy, be prepared for a lot of frustration. Just a note for new author: Smashwords is primarily good for giving away free copies anyway. You won't sell one tenth as many as almost anywhere else.
