Bio:  John began his writing as a full-time occupation after an extensive business career. His specialty is thriller fiction novels, but John also writes poetry and short stories.  His first book, My GRL, introduces the exciting adventures of the book’s central character, John J. Cannon. The second Cannon novel, His Revenge, continues the adventure, while the final book in the trilogy, Our Justice, launched in September 2016.  All books are available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle editions. John lives in Port Aransas, Texas with his wife and their spoiled rescue pets.

Favorite thing about being a writer: My favorite thing about being a writer is being allowed to be responsible for the quality of my work. I do not have to rely on others in bringing a project to conclusion. To be able to work hard and to be dedicated to the task to its finish is highly rewarding.

Biggest challenge as an indie author:  The biggest challenge is reaching readers. In today’s indie environment there are about 4000 books published each day. Rising above this population and being chosen to be read is a daunting task. It is especially hard if there are not unlimited funds available for promotion.

Favorite book:  My favorite book out of thousands of favorites is On the Beach by Neville Shute. It was the first book I could remember reading where the ending was not “classically” happy. I was stunned by the circumstances and the quality of the writing. The book deals with the world is ending due to nuclear war and the last humans are living in Australia waiting for their inevitable fate.

  1. Reblogged this on Fiction Favorites and commented:
    Book Club Mom has an interesting blog for Indie authors. I am so pleased to be profiled on her “Who’s That Indie Author” feature. Jump over and look around. You’ll be glad you did. My Thanks to Barbara Vitelli (Book Club Mom) for the opportunity.

  2. I can totally relate to his feelings about relying on others to bring projects to a conclusion! Today at work was very unproductive because I’m waiting on others! Grrrr. Oh well, it is the week of Thanksgiving. I’ll give people a break. :o) Have great turkey day on Thursday! I’m thankful to you for keeping your site updated with great content! Take care.

  3. Does being an indie author mean self-published, or does it mean publishing with a smaller, lesser-known publisher, or both? I’ve always been a bit curious about this, because I see so many books out there now that are published by smaller publishing houses, and I know it’s much easier to self-publish than ever before.
    Also, I liked what he said about a writer being solely responsible for the quality of his or her work. That’s what I enjoy about writing as well!

  4. On The Beach has to be one of those lost classics, an astonishing book which I read as a young teen and it still lives with me. The writing profound, the idea for then refreshingly apocalyptic. I had to reread the number of indie books published.Is this right? Per day 4000!!! I feel like giving up NOW!

Tell me what you're thinking!
