M.R. Mathias rose from unknown to award-winning, best-selling author at a pace most authors can only dream about. He is a prolific writer of epic fantasy novels, novellas, and short stories. Despite his busy writing, publishing, and promotional schedule Mathias continues to aid his fellow indie authors by posting about their books at Twitter and Facebook etc.

He shared his considerable knowledge of self-promotion in publishing The First Ten Steps. The book has become an important indie guide for navigating the often murky waters of using social media sites to get your eBook in front of avid readers.

Mathias has taken cross promotion to a new level in his "Indie Kindy" giveaways where he gives away a FREE Kindle Touch and or Kindle Fire loaded with independently published books. These events create a great deal of interest for the authors involved and to independently published books as a whole.

It is a pleasure working with M.R. Mathias and watching his amazing run at the top of the Amazon best seller lists.

From the Author
The jewel you see glowing in the ring in my old authors photo isn't really a jewel at all. It is the crystallized tear of a real dragon. In my novel "The Royal Dragoneers" you might find the moment where this wonderfully magical teardrop fell from a green dragons eye. It hardened on its way down to land in a mess of troll corpses that the dragon was laying on.

My grandfather died before I was born, but the ring was given to me by my mother, after my grandmother recently died. My grandfather had apparently won it in a poker game near the Red River between Texas and Oklahoma sometime in the early 1900's.

It has been a boon, the magic of the teardrop, for it brought you here to me didn't it? Now treat yourself to something fantastic and try out the free sample of one of my novels. I hope you enjoy the journey. It will be spectacular. Thanks M.R. Mathias

Based on the preview I thought that this would be a typical Superhero fantasy... but upon buying the full version, I realized that the story features realistic characters n a real-life setting, which makes the story more believable and creates more tension. The ending is very surprising, which I appreciated because it wasn't what I had expected.

If I have a criticism, it would be that the whole thing is too short: the characters are so well done and the story so compelling that I feel that this could have been a 200-page book instead of a short story, and I hope that the author will write more stories like this one in the future!

For 99 cents, you really can't go wrong.

This the book that tells the story I wish the Watchmen had been.

It's basically what happens when a real person tries to be a super hero. Yes, you can call it another Watchmen or Kick-Ass. But it's still original, touching and funny.

You won't find that in most stories you pay a lot more for.

cheers,
Mark

As a fan of superhero novels I fully enjoyed this. It is well written with a great cast of characters. I just wish it was longer. Very good fun.

You know that superhero story you always ment to get around to writing? The one set in the real world, the one where you point out the ridiculous nature of the superhero genre and how it really reflects a real need for good-doers in the real world but that we should be looking to real heroes (cops, firemen, teachers, and good samaritans) to help us? M.R. Mathias beat you to it.

Buy this short story. Try out the sample but remember the funny bits come after the begining, like in every good satire.

It wasn't Superhero story I thought it would be. It was more like a guy acting like one to pay off a debt for a friend. Wasn't pleased with it. Should have spent more time outlining and developing the characters with this story. Time and patience pay off in the end. Overall, Mathias has a heart for writing. It didn't take Stephen King to be a great writer overnight. Keep trying.

The only thing this story needed was to have the name of his secret identity as Vernon Dempsey. This book was funny and my wife kept asking why I was laughing. It was difficult to say that I was laughing about VD.
