New Banner reveal and a ‘Thank You’.

As much as I love the dragon eye image I’ve been using on this website it was only going to be for the short-term – basically until I got my act together and decided on the ‘look’ I wanted. Upon the recommendation of a couple of indie authors I’ve come to know, I was referred […]

This is a movement…’ Mark’s aim is to draw attention to […]

Independently (self-published) books / book promotion
