Smashwords Interview

How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords made it quite easy for me to publish my eBook. The free step-by-step guideline was so easy to follow, which made me more motivated to get my book out there. For years I'd procrastinated publishing my book because I dreaded it being a very tedious process. but thanks to Smashwords, that's a thing of the past! I am so excited about publishing with Smashwords and will definitely be using them to publish my future eBooks and will recommend them to others!
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I am a very transparent being, so writing has always been an outlet for expression. I have kept a plethora of journals throughout my lifetime because I leaned at an early age that writing was a good way to vent. I have always had a very vivid imagination, so writing is actually my escape from the real world as well.
