What motivated you to become an indie author?
I wanted to create a book myself from start to finish. I see so many authors self-publishing and it was something that interested me. I self-published a book when I first began my blogging journey and I felt called to publish this new dessert book before the 2020 holidays.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords makes it easy to publish on your own time. Once I was used to their platform, this second book was much easier to publish. My book is seen by so many ebook readers such as Apple, Nook and Kindle.
