Seraph is the writer of the Dream Oracle Series. He has an earned Ph.D. in psychology and much of his work involves the interpretation of dream symbols.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
There is a wonderful friend who has seen the potential for persons to read stories of how I have conducted dream symbols interpretations outside our practice of psychology and psychiatry. For years as a psychiatrist, she has attended dream conferences, dream seminars, and eagerly read books or peer review articles on the subject of dream symbol interpretations for life path choices. She expressed to me that how I conduct dream symbol interpretations is different and that I am "right on and so good at it." She is the one who has championed me to go past the traditional publishing routes. She believes that my stories will have a better chance of reaching interested readers as an indie author. She emailed the CEO of Smashwords about what she was seeking for a friend to publish his stories. The CEO graciously responded with options and she is the one who linked me to this path of publishing. I am honored and grateful for her belief in me.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords has been a wonderful step by step resource and guide on Ebook publishing. I have been informed through Smashwords publications and slide presentations into understanding the Ebook publishing industry. I have developed an understanding of the choices at my disposal from developing a cover to how to improve my marketing chances for sales. The navigation on the Smashwords website for publishing is user friendly with available support through links with answers to my question or by contacting persons to help resolve my questions. Smashwords for me is a one stop for all needs in Ebook publishing. It also is very helpful with information about updates in the industry for indie authors and best practice of best selling indie authors. I am grateful for Smashwords support.
