Robert Stanek: I’ll get things going by introducing myself. I'm Robert Stanek. I founded Go Indie (http://goindie.reagentpress.com/) in 2007 and that effort grew into the Go Indie and Free Today groups on Facebook as well as the Read Indies blog (http://readindies.blogspot.com/). When I began writing stories in the 4th grade, I had no idea that 35 years later I'd be celebrating the upcoming publication of my 150th book or that millions would have read those books.
My official #150 is the upcoming book from Microsoft Press that I just finished. That little book, weighing in at 1580 pages and 654,000 words, is called Windows Server 2012 Inside Out.
I self-published my first book earlier this year, “Forgotten Soldiers” and yesterday was surprised with a package notifying me that my book was a finalist for Historical Fiction in the Star And Flags Book awards, so an early Christmas present. I plan to keep writing as a hobby I love to do and also transition into teaching – unless of course Hollywood calls, but even if that happened, I’d probably still want to write and teach.
Wendy Jones: I'm Wendy Jones and I come from an academic background so have published in academic textbooks and journals. I have just finished my first novel and I am currently editing it. It is a murder mystery set in Dundee, Scotland where I live. It will be the first in a series about the CID in Dundee headed up by DI Shona McLeod so the series will be called The DI Shona McLeod Mysteries.
Diana J Febry: Hi, I'm a very new writer. My first two novels were published in 2012 and third is due to be published in January. All with Wingsepress. I'm learning as I go along. The first novel was a detective crime, the second - I honestly haven't a clue (one neighbour tries to blackmail another and it goes very wrong) and the third is probably women's lit. Looking forward to making new friends here.

A MORMON MASSACRE
That HE wasn’t crazy.
It was working…
Until he made one mistake…
That would change his life forever…
And force him to question his own sanity.
Something was missing from her life…
Doing a friend a favor…
And pretending to be someone else for a day seemed like a good idea at the time.
Then she finds a warning note…
From hundreds of years BEFORE she was born.
And then if that wasn’t bad enough…
Or will history repeat?
Island of Secrets: A Time Travel, Gothic Romance
