Damon Alan was born in Columbus, IN in 1966. He grew up in different southern Indiana locations, moving many times in his youth. Wherever he went, he was always the geek in the crowd, developing an early love for science fiction and fantasy. An avid fan of early sci-fi on TV, he hungrily consumed what was available and was upset if he couldn’t be Spock on the playground. That’s not doing a good job of staying in character, is it?
After becoming an adult, at least in name, he tried several different paths at college before finally realizing he didn't fit well with that sort of structure.

I've been kicking around the idea for WWII Fantasy for a while, and your compliment on the effort has inspired me to get with it. Book 2 will be called Secrets of Axum and I believe I'll have it ready before the end of May. The cover is done, the story is in my head, it's just a matter of typing it out, editing, then giving it to my editor so it's a product you'll like. Thanks again!(less)

Even if you go back and delete it later, once you get that first sentence out you're on the move. I find that I often can't stop once I get going. A few days ago I edited for seventeen hours. Fortunately my wife is a busy RN manager and I have plenty of time to do this. If that still doesn't work, talk to a writer. One that cares about your work and will motivate you.(less)

Let’s talk about February.

A new book released this month. The Depths of Aerth. It’s already selling well on Amazon, and I’m hoping to have the next three books, including this one, on Audible by the end of the year.





This is the best month I’ve had for sales by far. 200 straight sales, and 100,000+ Kindle Unlimited page reads for all of my books summed together this month.





What’s planned for the future?
