'Fifty Shades of Grey'

'Fifty Shades of Grey' by E.L. James is now the bestselling Ebook on Kindle ever - Chicago Literature |

"Author E.L. James first wrote her “Fifty Shades” series as fan fiction of the popular “Twilight Saga” by Stephenie Meyer, but her work is truly a sexual and moving work all her own now.

She was initially a self-published author on the Kindle, but after seeing her book take off online (many readers admitted they were embarrassed to have the sexy book in hand, and rather enjoyed the safety and discretion that could be found in the Ebook), the online trend continued."

and people wonder why I think my series will be the next big thing.

"Crystal Origin"

Here's the info for my latest:

Scarred from a battle they barely survived, Larissya and her companions embark on a journey that will take them far away from everything they have ever known. Determined to find the source of her powers, Larissya retraces an ancient path through the stars. It is a path that will lead them into the unknown. Into danger. Into a place where magic flows like blood.


I have been writing science fiction and fantasy stories for many years.
My writing has an edge to it. I enjoy exploring the dark and surreal landscapes of the mind.
The first two novels in my Legend Of The Crystals series are out (Crystal Warrior and Crystal Origin).
Book Three (Crystal Legacy) should be out in 2013.
I also have a science fiction short story collection out called Skin Of Giants,
a Twilight Parody called How To Keep Sparkly Emo Vampires Off Your Lawn,
and a poetry book called End Of The World Love Songs.
I am currently working on a Lovecraftian Thriller called Fade Away.
Thanks for reading!

Publishing Market Shows Steady Title Growth in 2011 Fueled Largely by Self-Publishing Sector - MarketWatch

Publishing Market Shows Steady Title Growth in 2011 Fueled Largely by Self-Publishing Sector - MarketWatch: NEW PROVIDENCE, N.J., June 5, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Bowker, the global leader in bibliographic information, released its annual report on U. S. print book publishing for 2011, compiled from its Books In Print® database. Based on preliminary figures from U.S. publishers, Bowker is projecting that traditional print book output grew six percent in 2011, from 328,259 titles in 2010 to a projected 347,178 in 2011, driven almost exclusively by a strong self-publishing market. This is the most significant expansion in more than four years for America's traditional publishing sector, but removing self-publishing from the equation would show that the market is relatively flat from 2010.
