I've always loved reading and I started writing three months ago. I now have three books on Amazon/Kindle eBooks. The latest two are Adam II:Emergence Into a Post Apocalyptic America and Adam II: Traversing a Post Apocalyptic America. These were written under the pen name B. Camp. Check them out!
My next book will be a murder/mystery. I've written five chapters and it should be finished by November.

Thanks for your comments. I'll admit that the first one starts a little slowly but if you can get past the backstory the action will pick up. I do believe the second one is a little better. I hope you enjoy them.

I just uploaded my fourth book to amazon. It may take a day or two to be available. I wrote this one with my wife. It will be under her pen name which is Maribeth Wagner with me, B. Camp, as co-author. The title is The Red River Gorge Killer. She describes it as a romantic suspense thriller.

If you hadn't said something I might not have. I try to give an author the benefit of the doubt until the slow pace is what it is. Slow paced.

Maybe do a rewrite and republish?

:ROFLMAO: Sure, that's so easy to do.
Thanks. I've actually considered that and will probably do so after I take a short break and recharge by batteries a bit.

I wasn't really serious. I have no idea what an undertaking like that would be. Would it be like rewriting the whole book over again?

One thing I did notice. You have one heck of an editor. So many in this genre are like two year olds with misspellings and incorrect word usage. So far either I've missed anything or there just are not the mistakes so commonly seen.

It wouldn't be too much trouble. I did four books (admittedly short ones) in three months so a re-write I could probably do in less than a week. The reason I was hesitant is that the beginning of the book is mostly autobiographical and my brothers and sisters requested that.
My wife does the editing even though she hates sci-fy. She was a teacher and understands punctuation. I tend to want commas everywhere. I'll pass your compliments on to her.
Again thanks!

I would leave the autobiographical stuff in. Just remove some of what came after. And add in some of the biographical stuff since his kids just sort of went poof in the story line. I noticed they were never brought up again. I'm sure others do.

I don't hate sci-fi. I just don't like most of it. I prefer natural disasters, I'm over CME's now, or virus' that have gotten out of hand. Add violence in the first chapter and I'm done. Too many lean on violence as their book fillers.

I have to look but a sister forum called Homesteading Today might have a book publishing topic.
