As most of you have discovered by now through these pages, I write fantasy / fiction when I'm not at work where the real paycheck comes from. Over the past twenty-plus years it has become a passion. Considering the fact that all my brothers and my sister read like demons is not lost on me. They all have a innate love of the written word. I was the one who came last to that passion.
Be that as it may, I am the one who took up the pen to try his hand at authorship. Over the years I have honed my style and worked diligently to become the best I could be. It has been a long road but a road I have gratefully traveled. Along the way, North of 50 was a big part of that as he served as both proofreader and editor. It is always best to have a critical eye to spot errors. No writer is perfect by any means.
Now, most of you are probably thinking, Robert T., what makes you think you (or any other writer) can write in the first place? There are many authors out there who are very talented and there are just as many who think they are. I have read books by "unknown authors" that are far superior to many of the "known" ones. Some books sell like crazy but are just pure garbage; not the story itself necessarily but the prose, the manner in which it was written. Often it's not the writing that makes an author successful but the dreaded "getting discovered".
So, here's your chance to put it to me and tell me what you think. I am putting my novel "White Staff" on sale through Smashwords. Smashwords is a distributor to sites for ebooks such as iTunes, Barnes and Noble, Amazon, Kobo and others. If you would like to see if I'm as good as I think I am just go to the Smashwords site https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/159809 and enter the coupon code MX52S when you purchase White Staff. It'll cost you a whopping $2.50 which is half the regular price.
I honestly hope you enjoy the story and the manner in which it was written.
