Hi Everyone, took me a few months to actually get my butt on here, lol. But better late than never right? Seeing as I finished my short stories about 15 years ago, and only just got them published, through Amazon self publishing. So about me, I'm from Australia, born in Victoria, but spent most my life in Perth, Western Australia. Love my country. It's beautiful and deadly. I have traveled all around Australia. A bit in my younger years with my dad when he was a truck driver. Then I did a couple of road trips with some friends while I was in the Australian Navy. 7 years service. I did 2 years at sea where we did go all around Australia. I recently had a death experience. I don't say near-death, as I actually died on the operating table. Short story, in Sydney, on my motorbike. Truck driver didn't see us and t-boned us as he failed to give way entering the round about. Was very serious, and I'm still recovering, but that experience is what gave me that push to get my stories edited, artwork done and published. The environment is vastly different to say 10 years ago. Self publishing was an extremely expensive process with little support. If you had no idea about marketing etc, you'd end up with 4000 books in your basement/attic/spareroom waiting for family and friends birthdays or something. lol. Now it's so easy. Changing the way we view the industry... and now block-chain technology is set to revolutionize it again. Anyway, happy to be here, hopefully can make some cool industry contacts. cheers James p.s. currently in North Carolina, USA
Hi everyone, this is my works, took a long time to get to this point.. but I've had them edited, and the graphic art done. Got a couple of reviews too... Compilation of ten short stories of the horror/thriller genre. Some familiar themes, Some familiar themes with a twist and some new themes altogether. Dive into the warped mind of James D Armstrong.... Reviews so far "This book is full of creepy, twisted, and shivery tales perfect for campfire storytelling or a quiet (and suspenseful) evening at home. Armstrong clearly has a penchant for the dark side of the mind, and his ability to illustrate with words is impressive. If you're looking for a new collection of psycho-thriller short stories, give this a try." Hayley Stone "Dark humour, horror and supernatural themes - what a crazy rollercoaster ride these stories are! I read this book on Kindle and liked it so much I knew I had to buy the 'real' paper copy!" D Lanoue "James’ sole intent is to not let you sleep! Read at your own risk!" Alana Osborne "If you like dark humour, horror and supernatural themes...you will like this book. Hold on for a crazy ride as this author is off the normal train." S Lanoue "I was skeptical at first, but this is very well written, and a very enjoyable book to read. It hooks you and reels you in with creative spooky twists around every corner with an aura of unpredictability and suspense. It is definitely worth the purchase! Looking forward to future releases from this author!" G Huff Do You Dare? LikeShow more reactions
