Ten years of Exile
The Anniversary of the Exile short story on Amazon.
A glance at the past
Ten years ago today I finally published something after years of trying. Yes, it was just a short story, yes it was self-published, and no it didn't become a sensation that left me with too much money in my pocket, but it did spend the entire time that I had it up for free in the top ten of all science fiction on kindle and top 100 of all free e-books. That didn't translate into money or even reviews, but it was mine and I was proud of it.
I was just back at work after a long stretch of unemployment and really I just wanted to have published something.
Before writing Exile I hadn't ever expected to write a military science fiction, I'd always written fantasy, but something hit me when I was writing it, and it took on a life of its own.
Now ten years later I'm still incredibly proud of it. I read it once a year and, sure there are things I'd change, but it's still good. I'm still proud.
"I hope this author has plenty more up his sleeve and I truly hope others get the chance to experience this fresh new writer. I will be recommending to others. Well worth buying!" – Amazon Review
Looking to the future
Today, on the 10 year anniversary of Exile, I have published this website, partly for ease of access to my published works, but also as a promise. Exile is not the last thing you'll see from me.
I'm pleased to announce, coming soon, a new novel titled Day Bringer, coming to Amazon very soon!
