Nik Olsen


I am sorry to say that i don't get involved with media or self promotion, which is why my book hasn't had any exposure since first self-published in 2012.
I simply want readers to like my books and obtain a degree of satisfaction or even inspiration from them. Providing i manage to gain some publicity (for the book), i would expect to donate a significant proportion of the profits to charity; which would be the ultimate satisfation for me.
As book 1 is the first of three, any constructive feedback would be welcomed for improvement to book 3; book 2 has been written and being assessed by the Indie Reviewer club, so i hope to have it available soon.
No print versions are currently available, apart from my own copy, but should there be a demand it is something that can be dealt with at the time.
Thank you for taking the time to read my boring 'bio'.

Smashwords Interview

What are you working on next?
Book 3 is in progress, possibly the last of what has been intended as a trilogy.
Who are your favorite authors?
I like historical fiction and philosophical books, but my writing has meant i have enjoyed many other genres. There is no one author i follow, and some who in the past have been good, i have become disappointed with. I often have a number of different books on the go at any one time, many of which i don't finish.
