Shiva's Messenger

Shiva’s Messenger

Shiva’s Messenger

A few years ago I wrote my first novel.  I self published it and spent some time hand selling about 3000 copies at bookstore author signing events.  At the time, my novel was available on Amazon and a few other online publish on demand marketing sites.  I later wrote a second novel, Loki’s Trojan, which is a sequel to Shiva’s Messenger.

Signed Mint Condition Collector 1st Edition of Shiva’s Messenger

shivasmessengerI listed Loki’s Trojan on Amazon and on the other sites but I didn’t print a large number like I did with Shiva’s Messenger.   It was about that time when I realized that Amazon was selling copies of my book but they were not crediting me with any royalties.  Rather than fighting that corporate ogre over the money, I just de-listed both my books.  Very few copies of Shiva’s Messenger now exist and virtually none of Loki’s Trojan do.

For those who wanted to read my work, I posted it here chapter by chapter.  I linked the chapters here for ease of reading.
