Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I always had this idea for a book that merged fact and fiction and used certain events and people in history as focal points. When I suddenly had more time to act on this, I jumped right in. I had a very positive reaction to a very short story and decided to write the first book and get the views of a professional editor. When the manuscript came back with very positive comments, I decided to re-write, edit and publish the first book.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
It has enabled me to publish the first book without the involvement of a publisher. It also has provided me with some very useful tools and guides that have been responsible for the completion of Gods and Monsters. There is also a community on here where I have joined together with other authors to produce Wyrd Worlds II. The short story, Irrevocable is my contribution. Check Wyrd Worlds II out. It's free!
