Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I think I came out of the womb taking notes, but my first paid gig was as a columnist for a local newspaper. For twenty-five dollars a week, I wrote about simple, everyday things such as what motivates Wisconsin motorists to wave at EVERYONE? The job taught me about deadlines, story structure, and how to craft articles someone would want to read.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I have a great relationship with my traditional nonfiction publishers, but my latest book, STEP ONE, is a fictional spiritual adventure and doesn't fit into their lists. I researched other authors who write similar fiction and learned they self-published. For those writers interested in going the indie route, I found BEAUTIFUL DISASTER author Jamie McGuire's website has solid, in-depth information that's helped me a lot.

Smashwords book reviews by Mary M. Bauer

  • Marriage by Mistake on Feb. 23, 2015

    Love! Great premise involving a quickie marriage between a stoic businessman and a warm-hearted, spunky LV dancer--a marriage the businessman can't remember b/c he wed while hypnotized. Ultimately we know this is a HEA story, but the couple (Dean and Kelly) doesn't know it until the very end--a great thing for this genre and keeps you reading and rooting for them. Kelly holds out hope "her" Dean will surface and plots ways to bring out the tender pussycat she fell in love with and married. In actuality, she falls even deeper in love with the non-hypnotized Dean--if only he can let go of the control freak hard-a$$ side of himself long enough to own up and admit his feelings for Kelly. A very solid, fun romance I've recommended to friends. Will definitely read more by this author.
