Tony Alan Grayson


Tony Alan Grayson is a native of South Carolina, residing in Virginia. "I have always been an adventure seeker. As a kid, I was the one who formed a "tribe", led expeditions to find other tribes, and I regularly roamed more than ten miles from my house. In high school, I convinced the U.S. Navy to pay for my college degree at The Citadel. I was a lifeguard at The Isle of Palms, a Navy Pilot, a Logistician, a Program Manager, and a Joint Armed Forces Operational Planner. Through the Navy and Navy Reserve, I have seen and experienced diverse people, cultures, food, entertainment, joy, danger, and settings in North, Central, and South America, Europe, Southwest & Southeast Asia, and the Middle East. Those experiences swirl in my memory, enabling me to craft diverse and detailed stories for your entertainment. I have written and published 3 full length novels in the e-book format, a guide on how I wrote and published two of the novels, and 110 articles (see them at, all of which have been published and promoted worldwide. I write for you. Take a chance. Step into a story and experience the thrill of adventure!"

Smashwords Interview

What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
I write and publish an article online every weekend. My articles are free to readers. They have eye-catching, searchable titles. While most article writers pick one topic and write continually about it, I write articles on diverse topics. All of my articles link to my Facebook page where my Smashwords e-novels are listed.
Describe your desk
My desk is a traditional office manager's desk constructed of oak with a dark stain. The large surface accommodates my computer monitor, keyboard, printer, speakers, and mouse. The other hardware is stored in a cabinet below. I have plenty of room to spread out hard copy notes and scribbles under a banker's lamp. I am detail-oriented in my life and in my writing. The desk allows me to surround myself with a myriad of details which I craft into my stories.
