A friend pointed this interview out (thanks Ken!). I’m not quite on the Indie bandwagon, nor the biggest fan of Smith’s (more a fan of his wife’s writing). The interview, however, was worth a listen if you’re into that sort of thing (advice from published writers, inside view, etc.).
Dean Wesley Smith has been writing for four decades, has 17 million novels in print, and puts out a monthly magazine containing around 80,000 words of new content just from him. He’s run two publishing companies, runs workshops, and has fully embraced indie publishing.
