The time is here for Safkhet Publishing to close its doors; this means for all intents and purposes the death of my novel “Legend of the Mystic Knight”. I have begun the process of sending requests out to literary agents, and to publishers, but this will be a long process with no guarantee of success. If you wish, you can follow my progress on my website.
Since it is the possibility of the sunset of my literary career, I wanted to take the time for those who helped, or advised me along the way. The list is vast, and if I miss anyone, my apologies.First, was Marianne Jones, author of the child’s novel, “Cedric and Pete’s Sailboat”. She was one of the first authors who first encouraged me in writing.
Justin Gustainis who was my college professor at SUNY Plattsburgh, a great writer and has influenced me tremendously.
Tressa Graves is a wonderful horror author, who also advised me early on in my writing career.
DeborahMacGillivray who had been very supportive; especially since I w as informed of my publisher’s demise.
Jeri Walker who helped me with my writing and this blog, and gave me an opportunity for an interview on her website.
Irene Soldatos, a former Safkhet Publisher, who assisted me quite a bit over the years.
Actually, there were other wonderful authors who had been with Safkhet Publishing who helped me along the way:
Sheryl Browne, who encouraged me and introduced me to Safkhet Publishing.
Will Macmillan Jones
I would like to take the time to thank Safkhet Publishing for giving me a chance by publishing my novel. I regret for both of us that my sales were not higher.
There are so many more. I encourage each of you to seek out writers I have written about in previous blogs.There are certain websites I must thank as well.
The Fantasy Guide, who gave me my very first review.
Trash Talking Radio, I had known Mike Trash from my wrestling days, and he gave me my very first radio interview
I would like to specially thank the LinkedIn group, Bloggers Helping Bloggers - (BHB), who assisted me in every aspect of this blog post. If you are a blogger, this is the group to join on LinkedIn.
Furthermore, I must thank my coworkers, friends and especially my family for their support. Having a supportive circle around you is vital for success in any endeavor.
Most of all I want to thank all of the fans of my novel. You took the time to read it, and many of you also took the time to review it. If it was not for the support of fans like you, there would not be an author in the entire world.
So, now it is an end of an era. “Legend of the Mystic Knights” will no longer be available to purchase. The world, the people I created will begin to be forgotten, and eventually fade away into nonexistence. Soon it will become nothing more than history, the same as the topics I like to write about. Perhaps, I will find another publisher down the road, perhaps not. All I can say now is it was a pleasure to write a story for you to enjoy. Thank you.
