What motivated you to become an indie author?
I am a reader first and reluctant writer second. I much prefer to read about a subject matter than to listen to a teacher. Since I am that way myself it would probably be good for me to connect with my audience in that way.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Writing is not a natural act for me. I write to help other small business owners and real estate investors so they can benefit from the mistakes I have made and lessons I have learned.
This book is a great resource for small business owners, self-employed, startups, investors and landlords. It reviews the available accounting software that can be used or accessed for free and contrasts them against various paid or subscription based software models. It also seeks to make small business owners aware of the advantages of using open source software versus proprietary models.
