Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I've been writing since I was in high school but I never really did anything about it. I've been feeling creatively stifled at work for some time now and decided it was finally time to do something about it. I have a number of short stories that I wanted to get out quickly and, as an avid reader myself, I realized that the indie author way would not only meet my needs but also get my stories out into many hands promptly for others to enjoy.
How do you approach cover design?
My husband, bOB HOmer, is an artist and has an unbelievably unique creative eye. I provide him either the whole story or a snippet from the story that I feel really speaks to the heart of the tale and ask him for suggestions. He creates mockups and we review them together. He's extraordinarily talented so I mainly defer to his judgment but he'll show me ideas and ask me to reflect on if I feel his mockup captures the essence of my story.
