Posted by Shannon Haddock on January 27, 2017 in Crown of Eldrete, Jake's Last Mission, No More Lies, Once A Hero Always A Hero, Rants |

This is another thing from that list of blogposts that wasn’t totally stupid. “Make a list of great first lines from books,” it said.  So, here is a list of five first lines that I really like, in no special order:  All children, except one, grow up.  — Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie   It is given […]

An Experiment’s Results and an Announcement

Posted by Shannon Haddock on January 6, 2016 in Crown of Eldrete, Jake's Last Mission, Once A Hero Always A Hero |

Several months ago, I made all my works free everywhere I could as a special offer.  I left them free in a couple, without advertising this, since then.

Once A Hero, Always A Hero’s original cover was one of those things that seemed like a better idea than it ended up being.  I have no idea if it hurt sales of the book or not, but it certainly didn’t catch anyone’s eye and cause an impulse buy!  So, for the new edition, I […]

What a difference a couple of years makes

Posted by Shannon Haddock on May 20, 2014 in Once A Hero Always A Hero, Writing process |

I released my first story, Once A Hero, Always A Hero, in September 2012, after it’d been done for several months.  Don’t ask.  At the time, I thought it was pretty good.  Not something I’d have given five stars if it was by anyone else, but certainly three or four. A few days ago, I […]
