2012 - The Year I Write 4 Novels

  Now that 2011 has come and gone, I can look back and smile at what I have accomplished. Go ahead, smile with me. During the course of the year, I went from planning on finishing the first book for Miscorrection to doing so much more. I also wrote five short stories and a novel under a pen name. In total, I wrote about 185,000 words this year and learned more than I ever thought I would. I've also met some great online writer friends like Jeff Ambrose and Steve Umstead .

This is a collection of 40 flash fiction stories I wrote. Unfortunately, I didn't see any sales of the book. On a high note, Fram Gage and The Infinite Ability released before December. While it was technically available starting November 23, 2011, I didn't promote it until November 25, 2011. From that point until now the book has sold faster than anything previously published by me (me being B.C. Young and Desmond Shepherd). So I'm happy about that. Don't forget, between now and December 7, 2011 you can pick up the book for only $0.99. That's 75% off the regular price of $3.99! Without further delay, here are my N
