About J. Daniel Sawyer

J. Daniel Sawyer is a hat-wearing, obsessive-compulsive autodidact attempting to write his way out of the loony bin.
A self-aggrandizing science fiction and fantasy author who publishes lurid stories and, worse, the occasional popular philosophy article, he is also a very minor authority on Open Source media production (a topic on which he is, unfortunately, published regularly in LinuxJournal).
In addition to his wanton abuse of the printed word, he unscrupulously uses his decade-long experience as an audio and video producer with his painfully florid and gritty writing style to create deeply immersive audio universes. This habit, which he indulges in public, has garnered him seven Parsec nominations and helped him make his first professional fiction and philosophy sales (a trend which, for the good of the world at large, we can only hope abates soon). Meanwhile, his growing, rabid fan-base is currently plotting to imprison him and force him to produce endless new literary abominations for their amusement. We can only hope they succeed.
Should you be so inclined, you can communicate with this shady character, as well as find podcasts, articles, and other literary abominations at

Review by: Ian King on May 08, 2014 :
Dan - You are the MAN! This book is EXCELLENT!! Very helpful, you know your stuff. I was at first sceptical about buying this book as it was more than I wanted to spend - but I tell you, it was worth every penny. I am working on turning some of my own work into audio books and was not sure about MANY things, but Dan has really helped me with this publishing. Highly recommended! Press BUY - you won't be disappointed! (Okay now Dan - pay up for my review, he he - just kidding. I am genuinely thrilled.)
