SOTS Passes 600-copies Sold!

Top news for today: Swords of the Six passed 600-copies sold since mid-March! Persistence is paying off and word is spreading!

I just returned from signing books at RJ Julia Booksellers in Madison, CT. This was a very slow event. We sold five books.

On the up side: I met an enthusiastic young reader who sat down and began reading as soon as he purchased Swords of the Six. Also, I saw a couple former co-workers who came to see me.

This Saturday I will be at a Borders Express store in North Attleborough, MA. I am greatly looking forward to that event; I have had consistent outstanding success with that chain.

hey, five copies is better than no copies. :) At least you're now going to a place you know you've had success with.

WELCOME TO THE WRITING SITE OF SCOTT APPLETON

"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." -Proverbs 16:24

In a world where morality is forsaken and Christ neglected, wholesome books are uncommon. The themes of my writing are love, self-sacrifice, and honor.

I see my generation turning from God to the gods of this world. I see homes torn apart in the pursuit of pleasure and self-gratification. Children are murdered by the millions every year . . . without ever seeing the world outside their mothers' wombs. Through fiction I strive to encourage those who are willing, to stand against these things and be heroes and heroines; chivalrous, gentle, full of righteous indignation, and the fear and love of their Creator.
