And on another front – Kindle self-publishing

I have decided that I will try to self-publish a collection of Blaise Maximillian shorts. Regular readers will know that I wrote the majority of the Blaise stories as a way of practicing my flash fiction, and also to fill the time as I walked to and from work.

However, I have decided that I am going to completely rework these stories, edit them to the max, and write a number of others that have not – and will not – been seen on this blog. I shall then attempt to sell them on Kindle for the bargain price of £1.50 to test the market and see what people do and don’t like.

Think this is a good idea?

About mattsylvester

Father of two beautiful daughters and married to the beautiful Karen, Matthew has been reading and writing fantasy and science fiction since he first read the Hobbit at the age of 7. Matthew was Features Editor, Technical Consultant and regular columnist for magazines such as ‘Fighters’, ‘Combat’, ‘TKD & Korean Martial Arts’ and ‘Traditional Karate’. These are the four leading martial arts magazines in the United Kingdom. He is also the author of the critically acclaimed 'Practical Taekwondo: Back to the Roots', which has been sold around the world. With regard to his martial arts background he has been studying martial arts since 1991. In 1995 he hosted Professor Rick Clark of the ADK and since then has been studying pressure points and their uses in the martial arts and on the street (initially as a Special Constable and as a Door Supervisor). All of this practical hands-on experience means that he is uniquely placed to write fight scenes that are not only plausible but some of which are based on personal or anecdotal experience. Matthew has had a number of short stories published by Fringe Works, KnightWatch Press, Anderfam Press and Emby Press.
