The Kindle Success of the Short Version Convinces Carlson to Write the Novel

Jeff Carlson

I'm very happy for Jeff. It was a great short story, and I can't wait to read the novel version.

Jeff Carlson is a 21st century digital man who is taking this concept all the way to the bank with his third publication of his successful The Frozen Sky story.

It all started when he entered and won the International L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future contest in 2007, which published The Frozen Sky in the writing career launcher, L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future anthology.

Jeff then published the short story version a few years later in e-format, selling 40 thousand copies on Kindle. He has now released the novel version in paperback and e-book form. Jeff is no stranger to success. His Plague Year and Plague Zone novels met a large audience and were published in multiple languages.

"I'm very happy for Jeff," contest Director Joni Labaqui said when she heard the news. "It was a great short story, and I can't wait to read the novel version."

The contest, now in it's 29th year, created by best-selling author L. Ron Hubbard, is a merit-based competition initiated to discover and encourage talented beginning writers of science fiction and fantasy and help launch their careers. Winners are treated to not only publication of their work in the annual L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future, but are also given a week-long workshop on the life of a writer and a gala awards ceremony.

The contest has launched the careers of eleven New York Times bestselling authors in it's 29 year history.
