Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become a writer?
Most, if not all, writers do so because they have to. Not from any desire to become rich and famous, but the creative juices within them dictate that they have no choice.
Once the book is finished you used to be forced into a world where a hand-full of people (publishers) decided who got into print and who didn't. If you can't get on national tv you were up against it.
Now, with indie publishing we, the writers, decide who gets published.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
that Mark Coker has some very good advice.
