At the start of the year, when the project formulated. I had only read one or two Sci-FI books, and had not written in the genre. I gained my rep for ghost stories.
I had toyed with the idea of putting books on Barnes & Noble for some months, but always shied away. I thought with most of their shops being in Universities, and higher education establishments, I would have no chance of sales for my Sci-Fi stories.
Forgestriker is now only ONE sale from the BIG 50. To give you some perspective, this means it has sold more than one and half times the amount of books my Amazon best seller -- Holding Richmond -- in less than a quarter of the time. The advantage of a book selling site, as to a retail giant.
My plans for the extended version -- a new start, and ending point -- are still under way.
