Publisher info

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 http://www.jdsawyer.net

Smashwords book reviews by AWP Books

  • How I Sold 1 Million eBooks in 5 Months on Sep. 22, 2011

    John Locke uses 35,000 words to explain what could be taught in approximately 6,000. The book is mostly padding. The three central ideas he pitches are useful and will be valuable to a lot of self publishers, though two of the three are already matters of common practice. Verdict: it's worth the $5, but it's not the goldmine it positions itself as. Approach it with moderate expectations, and you won't be disappointed. His fiction, though, is really kick-ass :-)
