Michael R. Fletcher is a science fiction and fantasy author, a grilled cheese aficionado, and a whiskey-swilling reprobate. He spends his days choreographing his forklift musical (titled "Get Forked"), and using caffeine as a substitute for sanity. Any suggestions that he is actually Dyrk Ashton in disguise are all lies.

Hi Paul,

Okay. So, while Beyond Redemption was a critical success, the sales fell short of where the publisher wanted them. When it came time to release the sequel, they passed on the book. Though it had always been my intent to write several books in the series. the deal I had with them was for a single novel.

We looked into finding other publishers for The Mirror's Truth, but no one was interested in the sequel to a book held by another publisher. In the end, I decided to self-publish as I'd already written the book.

While you can find the book on most online retailers (well, Barnes and Noble, and the various Amazon affiliates at least) it's pretty unlikely you'll ever see it in a store.

I hope that helps.

Cheers!(less)

Interview with Luna at Booksprens

So I’ve just finished your novel, Beyond Redemption. I really love the way you write. It is so dark, I’ll be questioning my sanity for eternity now. What inspired you to write something so dark?
