TESTING THE MAINSTREAM WATERS

There is a high of sorts that comes from publishing a book. When you pull that first copy from the box you get hit with a mainline of the good stuff. Having just printed my third book, Black Tide, not only have I chased the dragon but was able to grab its tail. The rush passes but the feel good remains. Now what? This is the eternal dilemma of all authors. Selling the damn thing.

We’ve worked our fingers to the bone getting them on e-pub, consignment, and as many internet sources as we could find. Even to the extent of buying shelf space in some stores. I guess bony fingers come with being a starving artist.

Through another local writer we heard of the KDP select being offered by Amazon. Having never gone mainstream before it was not without some trepidation to jump in. You never know until you try.

My novels will be put into the KDP Select consecutively, beginning with, anoxic zone. This is your chance to pick them up at rock bottom prices. Great horror should not be allowed to collect dust.

About john g rees

John g rees is not your average horror writer. Not your average martyr either. After the death of his father and that of a close friend, john found the release he was loooking for and started writing. Born in the Midwest some half-century ago to two soon-to-be morticians, one can see where his ‘dead pan’ humor truly came from. Playing amongst the caskets and his catholic school upbringing underscore much of his work. He went through many types of employment. Moving west first to San Francisco, finally making his home in the Hawaiian Islands, john g rees has worked in many diverse, yet tangent fields: from the repair of Ferraris to the repair of underwater dock pilings; painting houses to painting ship zincs; general construction to general salvage diving on many sized ships - working out of Pearl Harbor for a while, on Navy vessels, some top secret. He has traveled the world looking for work and play in out of the way places. Never finding what he expects. He likes it that way. He has been happily married for 20 years.
