I retired in 2012, so I have plenty of time on my hands. I've always enjoyed reading the old pulp sci-fi books from way back. Ben Bova, Poul Anderson and Arthur C. Clarke being some of my favourite authors. I uploaded my very first ebook early January 2013, science fiction of course. Smashwords is brilliant, allowing first time and seasoned authors alike to make their work available with ease for public enjoyment. There's some really talented authors on the site. I need to do a lot of work to even come close to their quality of writing, but I'll have a lot of fun in the process. E-books are definitely the way to go. Best wishes to all that visit.
