The end of February 2014 could well mean a new beginning for my work.
At the end of the month the result for the cut to make the top 6 stories in the http://friendsmerrilcontest.com/ Friends of the Merril Collection Sci-Fi contest will be announced. My hope is to make the cut, getting this far will be a big boost to me. This year I joined Draft2Digital https://www.draft2digital.com/book/ and in less than a month I sold more books than in a year on Amazon. My previous best seller for a month was Holding Richmond — my Civil War & Vampire crossover — but the new monthly sales leader is the second book in the “Forgestriker” series (Forgestriker).
In the coming quarter, I hope to emulate the success of 2012 when Chronicles of Mark Johnson won an award for excellence at http://indiependents.org/indie-seal-books-1-50.html with my latest book, which is a slight change for me, as it is a romance. I am known for my ghost stories and this is no exception. “A Sailor’s Love” is a romantic ghost story tinged with erotica & spirituality.
