Walcott, ND (PRWEB) February 20, 2011
Walcott, ND (PRWEB) February 18, 2011. Located in a little house on the prairie in the sandhills region of the outback of eastern North Dakota, Nuclear Sundogs Publishing is a new, mostly fiction publisher of paperback books dealing with contemporary issues and current events.
Nuclear Sundogs Publishing supports one author, James W. Nelson, of Walcott, North Dakota, whose work includes three novels, two books of short stories, and his autobiography.
A fourth novel The Bellwether, a disaster novel, is free to read online (individual chapters) under SubRon7 at http://hubpages.com. At the end of each chapter is a short synopsis of the next chapter. Read the entire novel at http://free-ebooks.net, which in eleven days, has garnered 1841 downloads.
James says, “I haven’t given up on approaching the large, established, publishers, but placing my work on the internet has given me much encouragement. My first six books placed at Free-ebooks a year ago has reached 67,783 downloads. That time, even with six books, it took several weeks to reach 1000. Book number seven has passed 1800 in only eleven days, meaning to me that internet readers now know my name and like my work.” Novels five and six are still being written.
Other works include the novels, Winter In July, nuclear war drama; Experiments, medical mystery drama examining illegal and dangerous drug research; and Callipygia, romantic drama delving into the many issues facing today’s woman.
Books of short stories include Strange & Weird Stories, short stories entering the world of the paranormal; and A Collection of Short Contemporary Stories, short stories looking into the lives of regular people as varied as an auto test driver, a floral designer, a skydiver, a flea market dealer, even contemporary and youthful mercenaries, (a novella.)
James’s autobiography, Dying to Live, is a narrative of growing up on a storybook farm, surviving drowning and a tornado, a skydive, and an amazing and exciting 4-year ride on a United States Navy submarine during the 1960s.
Thanks to the internet, authors now have options other than approaching the large publishers. For instance, Free-ebooks, a site to place a finished book for the public to read for free. A real deal for the reader. For the author a way to measure interest and readership.
Readers at those sites have a button to click for sending the author a donation, and pay through PayPal. Those same sites also allow readers to write a review. All positives for the struggling author. Enough readers, donations, and reviews definitely can suggest not only continuing writing but approaching a large publisher with a track record, or, if one chooses, launching a self-publishing career, thereby releasing to the public a whole new range of published material.
