Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
The latest book in print as of this question - Thrall Kind - is a collection of poems addressing systems control, free will ethics, and some seriously black humor in places.I'm a procedural free will ethicist, considering informed contractual consent to be the sole mattering thing, so this tends to bleed over into poetry pretty easily.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
