David Whelan


Hi, I'm David Whelan author of The Silent Saga: Desolate and with more to come in the saga. There is not much to tell only that I'm from a place called Monamolin in County Wexford but now reside in Clonmel, Co.Tipperary. The focus of my work is primarily Science Fiction but with an interest in many genres, I'm not confined to just that but sci-fi is my passion whether it be in a book or on screen.
I hope you enjoy my work for what it is. My objective was to create a saga that entertains on a simple level in much the way that old B-Movies do or straight-to-DVD films which I quite enjoy. It is intended not to be full of twists and technical brilliance in the art of storytelling but rather flows with intended cliché that takes the reader on a familiar, yet fun and thrilling route.
That is the intention of The Silent Saga along with action and adventure and maybe a hint of Space Opera to drive it along. I hope you enjoy my work as I enjoyed writing it and whatever your opinion on it, I want to thank you for looking at my page or reading my work, it really does mean a lot to me. Thanks again and as I said, I hope you enjoy the read. Take care.

What is your e-reading device of choice?
Well against the run of play, I prefer a good old fashioned paper book but in the ebook world I read off a kindle, although the PC version.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
The tried and tested social media sites are what I have been working off so far and its doing the trick. Facebook has been the most effective to date with twitter close behind.
