What motivated you to become an indie author?
I had written my first manuscript and submitted it to several publishers. Each publisher rejected it saying that it did not fit into the realm of topics that they were looking for at the time. I was doing some freelance work with an indie publisher at the time and he suggested that I publish it myself.
