Well, I was looking on Smashwords (building my account so I can publish my first e-book) soon and noticed a lot of older indie authors. I'm talking around the age of 35 or up here. For me, I'm only 9 months away from being 18 and I have no idea if anyone would buy or read books from someone who's almost out of high school compared to people who have had years of experience. My first e-book which is 75% complete is going to be FREE of charge. I just want to know if anyone is under 18 and has had success with e-book self-publishing. I think a lot of the successes with certain e-book is because there is some personality behind the person who wrote it in the first place. It may not be true, but that's what I am thinking.
