A WONDERFUL GUIDE for authors and especially Indie authors, like myself, who didn't know the first thing about publishing an ebook. It helped me to publish an ebook of my Award-Winning True Crime book "Fighting the Devil", which was already available in paperback and hard copy.
The guide offers simple step-bystep instructions that are easy to understand and comply with, and Mark Coker is generous enough to offer it free to all.
It is definitely required reading for any author who wants to distribute their work on a marvelous place like Smashwords- the ultimate distributor for major ebook retailers.
Thanks Mark- I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate you sharing your knowledge and kindness.

The mythical creatures in this novel are larger than life. The author shows the readers glimpses that the main character, Kali Michaels, is a strong and fascinating woman. Early in her life, she meets a man with whom she feels a strong attachment. Her world turns upside down when years later she finds the same man standing in the same place on the mountain peak. She learns he is a half-human, half-angel that helped destroy Earth to send God's children home for judgment. Kali learns many things from Tiamat. She gains extra traits from an accidental contact with the half-angels blood. These traits and her own ability help her survive as she battles to find and save survivors in the post-apocalyptic world. My only complaint is that I wish the author had used a little more dialogue. Other than that I found it to be an intriguing and enjoyable read.

At some times or another in our lives, I believe we have all had to battle anger. The main character in this different kind of novel has a problem dealing with anger. However, reading this novel could help a person deal somewhat with our own unenthusiastic issues and distractions. For I believe all of us have been unhappy at some point in our lives, and I know that negative emotions can drain us of energy and ambition.
Time is too short to be pessimistic and have a defeatist attitude, which is why I do everything I can to keep a positive, optimistic and supportive attitude. We can't be cheerful all the time but it won't break our face to crack a smile.
If and when you get a chance to read this fascinating adventure it might help you find an outlet to happiness, if you feel you need one.
Personally, I like a story that is written in the first person and really liked it that this one had a glossary to help readers understand terms we might not otherwise understand.
"Phantasy" contains some explicit language and overtones you might not agree with, so I suggest you keep an open mind while reading it. That being said, I believe the novel is creative and could peak your curiosity, and who isn't a little curious?

Who wouldn't have nightmares and severe depression when people we love are brutally murdered? The main character in this novel feels as though his life was ripped apart when his brother, father & fiancée were all killed by raiders. He vows revenge and sets out on a path to vengeance. This is an interesting novel and it has very interesting characters with intriguing scenes that the author cleverly conjures up in your mind as you read. Get ready to be transported into a world of science fiction and be ready to gaze skyward.
