Jeremiah Jackson worked in the cinema industry in the UK for many years. It made him cynical and he always used to say, as many people do, “I could write a book about the crazy stuff that goes on here.” Unlike many people who say those words though, he actually did write that book.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I'd tell people stories about the crazy stuff that happened at work, and like so many always used to say, "I could write a book about this." So I did. It took several years and I did it for me, not to make money. Going Indie publishing saves me the soul-destruction I'd no doubt suffer if I tried to get a mainstream publishing deal.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I sold my first copy of the book here! They beat the other channels. They also helped to to make sure the book was market-ready with formatting, to get it out there and make it professional.
