He was professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and supportive throughout our collaboration. I would be happy t...

Ben said that publicity takes time to turn into sales so I have waited 6 we...

I saw a noticeable increase in book sales and made the top 50 list on Amazon for science fiction anthologies several weeks in a row. My publisher (Bookbaby) noticed this and made me a featured author during ...
