I am good!

Even as the writer my stories are so good I cry when I write a sad story and the scary stories give me bad dreams, even though I know what is happening, imagine what it would be like if you didn't know the plot.

This is not an idle ego boost, my editor Julia who graduated from Harvard says I am a great story-teller and my writing is coming on well over the last year and a quarter, so, I guess the lady knows her stuff as she has been in the writing business for over thirty years in various editorial roles.

Sadly, because of the vast numbers of zombie books on sale and the ever growing number of cheap porn E L James copycats on the market, there is little chance that my ghost stories will get a look in as they are not sensational enough.

I know I am better than some writers who make a lot more money than I do in a year, but I am hindered by a lack of funds to publicize my writing, a lack of connections, a desire to see my work live on its merits not because some celebrity gives the book a boost and my reluctance to write fanfiction stories.

I must be good as in September of 2012 a person in a Facebook contest twice sabotaged one of my contest entries to prevent me beating her and then went on an on line attack of my award winning book "Chronicles of Mark Johnson,"  http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008BEDMSO   to this day, jealousy is the only reason I can think of as the book has not sold since the award in October of that year and my reputation is so small it is not worth destroying.
