Kimberly K Comeau


I was sixteen or seventeen when I began writing a story set in the Ofrann Desert of Axxord. I never finished that story, but the setting and characters, Kayarra and Aya, stayed with me through graduation, marriage, the birth of a son, full-time employment, and part-time vocations. Twenty years passed. I completed the draft of a novel called Rainbow Gold. Then, while searching through notes and partially completed manuscripts, I located a handwritten copy of that early, unnamed manuscript. Many of the elements that had captured my imagination all those years ago captivated me again. I began writing. Not from where I'd left off, but from a new page one. In those intervening years, both the original story and I had matured. And for the next fifteen years, I wrote . . . first the draft, then a full rewrite. And during that time, I met and befriended other writers. I studied writing. I wrote short pieces. I was appointed director of an online writing workshop. I taught what I'd learned through experience and education. I joined a critique group, PC Quill. And finally, I finished Moons' Kiss, and wept as I wrote the final sentence.

Smashwords Interview

How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords allows me the flexibility to provide free copies of my book to reviewers, contest winners, and during other promotional efforts. It allows me to offer my book at a reduced price for a period of time I specify, and even allows me to chose the venues through which my book is sold. I know no other publisher that offers their books in as many electronic formats, so that virtually anyone with an e-reader or computer can download and read my work. The ability to see my sales numbers at all times allows me to judge the effectiveness of various marketing efforts so I know how best to delegate my time and efforts. Smashwords truly is author and reader friendly.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The creativity. The intellectual challenge. The necessity to dig deep into my heart and soul and experiences to understand the fictional situations I create. The surprise of discovery.
