What motivated you to become an indie author?
I considered -- and am still considering -- the traditional route. But from what I have heard from friends who are traditionally published, writers who go the traditional route are being paid less at the same time they're asked to do more and more that used to be in the hands of publishers anyhow. The way the math works out for me is, if I'm going to do the work of an indie author anyway, and do it for indie author paychecks, I'll take indie author level editorial control, too.
