J.D. Cunegan is known for his unique writing style, a mixture of murder mystery and superhero epic that introduces the reader to his comic book-inspired storytelling and fast-paced prose. A 2006 graduate of Old Dominion University, Cunegan has an extensive background in journalism, a lengthy career in media relations, and a lifelong love for writing. Cunegan lives in Hampton, Virginia, and next to books and art, his big passion in life in auto racing. When not hunched in front of a keyboard, scratching a pencil over a piece of paper, or with his nose stuck in a book, Cunegan can probably be found at a race track or watching a race on TV.

Hi, Mike,

Unfortunately, outside of a positive review for BOUNTY, I haven't seen much benefit from OnlineBookClub. Part of that is because so many of the packages and services they offer are so outside my price range (I don't begrudge them their prices, as they need to make money, but I can't afford the vast majority of what they offer). I'm also not a huge fan of paying for a review, but I thought OBC would be a good outlet for promoting my work. Alas, I haven't seen where that's happened.

Good luck!(less)

I guess, if I had to choose one, it would probably be the world in Ready Player One -- because the VR realm and the cornucopia of pop culture references would have me feeling right at home.(less)

The Return of Editing Services

Hey, all,

Just a note to let you all know I'm accepting editing clients again!

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, I have more time on my hands, and with the relative freeing up of my schedule, I can now edit manuscripts again. My prices will remain unchanged; however, if you’re facing financial hardship due to current circumstances, I’ll be glad to work out either a reduced rate or a payment plan.
