The Black Orchestra
Those of you who know me from these threads will remember that I've been working on a WWII historical novel since 2008!
It has now been published for the kindle and other eReaders.
It's called The Black Orchestra by JJ Toner
Here's one link to the book:
Congratulations on getting it out there for readers! I hope you have lots of success with it. I'm curious about how self-pubbing actually pans out for those who choose that route (this is self-pubbed, yes?), so I (and others, I assume) would be interested in hearing how it goes.

The biggest headache - whichever way you get published - is building a following of real fans who want to read your stuff.
The process is easy enough. For each of my books I have invested in a professional editor. A lot of self-published authors skip this (as it can be costly) but I think it's essential. The cover designs don't cost a lot and I do everything else myself.
Well, alrighty! The blurb sounds fascinating. Congratulations and best wishes!
Blood Atonement sounds awesome. Was it difficult to write about the Mormons and were you fearful of upsetting them?
