More About the Author
I was born in St Louis, Missouri and attended a University in the same area. My first book "Dawn of Negative Time" was completed after 30 years. The book was adapted and revised during the decades in many aspects with no hope of publication.
I continued until the day arrived, when an opportunity arose from the darkness. Submitting a book to many publishers was time consuming and expensive. As a new author, many rejection letters would have been received.
There was no hope to distribute my book, until I accepted an offer from a subsidy publisher. The opportunity could not be rejected. With the advancement of technology, the Internet became an important channel for distribution of my first novel. The example given to me by Rssedog for certain issues caused me to write my other five books, "Within the World of Forever", "Before Yesterday, Comes Tomorrow", "The Guns of Mestonville", "Ten on a Skillet", and "The Golden Lions" within a much shorter period.
New channels arose, which enabled me to use other methods of distribution with much less expense.
A regular publisher, who pays all publication expenses, is the best alternative for any aspiring author. Without the proper contacts, even quality and thought-provoking novels from a new author has a difficult time to be noticed. Once an author is established and accepted by the readers, the chances of success increase.
Enjoy my science fiction books and experience the journey from a Christian perspective. Many parodies were used of various books and movies, which are combined with a fresh, but familiar approach.
Also, buy my childrens book, "My Child's First Photo Book" to encourage the young ones to learn.
My second editions are now available, except "Dawn of Negative Time", within the Tate Publishing Bookstore. The official release date is January 7, 2014 for online and retail distribution. Inform others on social media, such as Twitter and Facebook.
