Amy Miles

Publisher info

Author Amy Miles has always been a bit of a dreamer. Growing up as an only child, and a military brat to boot, she spent countless hours escaping into the pages of a book, only to spend the following days creating a new idea of how to twist up the story to make it unique.

Since becoming a mother, Amy has slowly nourished her love of the written word while snatching writing time in the midst of soiled diapers, tumbling over legos and peering around mounds of laundry and dishes that never seem to go away. Once her only son started school, Amy was free to let her fingers dive into dark mythology, tales of betrayal and love, and explore human nature in its rawest form. Her love of seeing the world from a different angle bloomed.

Author Amy Miles is the author of several novels, including her popular young adult immortal books, The Arotas Series, which are an Amazon and iBooks bestselling series. Unwilling to be defined by any one genre, she proceeded to flip over to a science fiction/fantasy based idea with her Rising Trilogy. She then explored the depths of her own faith with In Your Embrace and discovered her darker side with the first installment Wither, a zombie thriller.

Smashwords Interview

How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords has opened new doors that I could not open for myself. The ability to publish once and have my books on multiple websites is fantastic. I don't have to fret over figuring out each website's rules on formatting. I don't have to jump from site to site to check sales. It simplifies the process and allows me to save time. My relationship working with Smashwords has been fabulous. I can't say enough praise for the entire Smashwords team!
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I have always been a writer. It is in my blood. A calling that I always hoped could one day turn into something more than just a hobby. When I sat down to write my first official book nearly three years ago I knew it was a long shot. I knew there were countless people out there with talent and a story to tell...but so did I.

I write to entertain. To give people the chance to escape for a few hours from their lives and dip into a fantastical world. Isn't that why we read in the first place?

Zombie High Chronicles
My name is Roan Sterling. I am seventeen years old. I am not infected. Three months ago my world went to hell and never looked back. I knew long before the others that we were all officially screwed. Growing up as an army brat had taught me a few things. Like when the military enacted martial law and forced you to leave your home, a normal day would be anything but. Life in the Safe Zone sucked. The soldiers could poke us like lab rats, load us up on buses bound for school and pretend like everything was normal, but I knew fear when I saw it and the soldiers manning the gates were gripping their guns just a little too hard for comfort. This place used to be a typical “last place on earth anything would ever happen” slice of suburbia. Until they happened. Dead Heads. Stiffs. Lame Brains. We had a lot of names for them to replace dad, sister or son. Something flipped a switch in their brains and the lights went out, but I suspected that the blackout was only temporary. I’d seen things I wasn’t supposed to. The Dead Heads were starting to notice us for the first time. Life at Zombie High was about to get a lot bloodier.

Smashwords book reviews by Amy Miles

  • Hollowland (The Hollows #1) on Nov. 21, 2011

    Downloaded this book since it was free. I'm not a fan of zombie movies or books, but since I enjoyed some of her other books I decided to give it a try. I was surprisingly pleased with the book. It wasn't too graphic that I couldn't make it through the book but detailed enough to give me the creeps. Will probably read Hollowmen.
