How a #SELF-PUBLISHED #Author went from 99¢ ebook to Movie Blockbuster #THEMARTIAN

Yes, I also dream of something like this to happen to me. Maybe one day people will watch a movie or television series of my books in the epic fantasy series The Wolf Riders of Keldarra. Yes, I will dream of the possibility, and I will keep writing new stories as that’s what I love to do…

I’ve seen The Martian and I love the movie. I’m happy that Andy Weir got the opportunity from the story he wrote. He deserves the accolade. 🙂

The reviews (well the 1-star reviews at least) DO NOT reflect that and the reviews make out the book is still bad grammar-wise.

I suggest that MY READERS re-download e-books bought from me at least every couple of months because then you are ASSURED to always have the LATEST version in your possession. DO NOT rely on Amazon to do this update for you!!!

The Wolf Riders of Keldarra: Book 1: The Stone of Truth — Professionally edited and back in action!

Yes… this book. It had a rather bad start, got some bad reviews (only two eye-opening ones). But it’s proof that GOOD professional editing can do wonders. The editor who worked on this is Alison Jack, and she did an amazing job making the story really come to life with good grammar, better flow of story, etc.

It’s quite possible I won’t win a book award with this, or get in the NY Bestseller list, but I made an effort to IMPROVE the book for my readers…

Onward to the other books to do the SAME with…

Happy reading, Wolf Pack!!!
