The Opening of Gunny Publications Inc.
« on: March 01, 2010, 09:31:47 PM »
For some time now members of this board have been urging me to get my books published. Well, for the last three years I have tried to do just that. But, alas, no regular book publisher would pick up my works.

So I decided to form my own company and become a book and game publisher. Well I am now here to tell you that Gunny Publications is now an official company! Stock issues and everything corporate-wise.  8)

All of my books and games will eventually be published by this company.

With every book I am going to offer a three chapter preview for free. So that you can get an idea if you will like the book before purchase. So follow the URL below to the foras and DL the preview for our first release, The Gunny: The Saga Begins.

Read the preview, and if you have any comments, good or bad, please post them either on the Gunny Pubs fora, or here. Then if you enjoy the preview head on over to our web shop and support Gunny Pubs by making a purchase.

Then if you really enjoyed what you read, tell your friends about it. Word of mouth advertising is, IMO, the best form of advertising.


URL for the free preview: http://www.gunny-publications.com/forum ... d.php?t=46


URL for the Web Shop: http://www.gunny-publications.com/Main.htm   Just hit the button labeled Web Shop to find our lil' part of the web.



Cheers, Thor

Cool!

Did you ever try Baen as a publisher? They always struck me as being a good place for 'smaller/starter' authors.

Yes I did. I spent one year waiting for their "you are not good enough" Email.  :D

Ken has 5 more books halfway or more done and a few getting the final polish. His books cover a wide variety of genres from post apocalyptic action to classic space opera with his own distinct touch. One of the many things I like about his stories is that they give you a sense of history as they stories often build upon one another.

His villains and heroes both are complex and each have a history of their own. This and many other things have contributed to the creation of an immersive universe that I have enjoyed reading and commenting upon for the past three years and more. I have even been able to contribute to several story lines and plots as well. If you look carefully, you may find them. :)

Yes, this is a plug for my bud! But its a plug that he has earned. I am a voracious reader and have learned to discern good from bad over the past 29 years of reading. If your looking for an enjoyable military oriented read, try him out. I don't think you will be disappointed!

Book One of the Gunny Saga is currently available for purchase.  :D

I figure our second offering will be available for purchase in a week or two.

Personally I'm not very interested in the Gunny saga, when will the Roman stuff go on sale?

The next book to be published will be from the Test of Wills Saga. See the Roman fora for further information.  :D

The Preview for A Test of Wills: The Time of Fire has been posted.  :D The Next preview to be posted will be: A Test of Wills: The Time of Blood. Book two in the Time of Fire Saga.

Please keep in mind these previews are works in progress, and as such are subject to change.

You can now DL the previews without logging in. I noticed a lot of folks had visited the site, but only a few had DLed the preview. That has been changed.

As a side note, both of these books have Romans in them!
