Don't check out yet! I am not going to bore you with the books I published in 2011. For them you have only to browse this website. However, in passing I would like to say that my life as a published writer began in October 2011, thanks to Smashwords! Its existence has had a life-changing effect on me as an 'Indie' writer (Independent writer/publisher) that I could never have imagined. Smashwords has taken away my frustration and added a healthy dose of enthusiasm!
They say that every single person has a good book in them. Everyone now has the outlet for publishing. So, write and then edit well if you want to give it to an avarice but critical public!
Along the way, I would like to say that my new experience in the published world has also given me a wealth of contacts with other writers who have chosen the 'indie' path. As we all slowly advance with our works, it is a comfort to be able to share thoughts or problems with authors in a similar situation.
I had no idea what was waiting for me behind the author's door but the most important discovery I have made once over the threshold has been that the money one makes is not all that important if one is read and liked!
