This site will detail the successes and failures of one Stephen Knight, genre author extraordinaire, as he mumbles and bumbles his way through the whole e-publishing deal. With his usual combination of skill, guts, dedication, and relentless joie de vivre, it’s without a doubt that he’ll soon make it to the #1 slot in all formats.

Or… maybe not.

    I was just looking you up, curious about the authors showing up for my book’s Also Boughts. I’m totally digging your blog! I would be thrilled to have you as a guest blogger some Writer Wednesday, if you’d like.

    I can just hear the passion in your voice as you describe your experience with self-publishing, and I really appreciate your transparency with your 2011 sales numbers. Right on, and CONGRATS. I aspire to that level of success.

    Drop me a line at RedTashBooks@gmail.com sometime, okay? I’d love to share your voice with my readers.

    Stephen… Volume Two’s ending destroyed me.

      Well, I had to end on a dramatic note, damn it! 🙂

    I picked up The Gathering Dead when it was one of the Kindle Daily Deals a few days ago, and I must say that I was surprised at how good it turned out to be. I burnt out on “zombie apocalypse” stories a very long time ago, but yours was a very refreshing take on the genre. I have since purchased the Kindle edition of Left With The Dead, as well as volumes one and two of The Rising Horde. Thanks for the great stories!

      Hey, thanks very much, Jeremy! If you’re so inclined, please leave a review on Amazon. (But if you’d prefer to decline, that’s cool too.) Glad you liked it!

    I really enjoyed reading “The Gathering Dead” and “Left with the Dead”, but a buddy of mine is unable to read them due to bad vision. I was hoping, if possible, you could make an audible version of these two books so that my friend could enjoy them as well. They are the best zombie books I’ve read so far. Thank you.

      It’s on my hit list, that’s for sure!

      Gabriel, should you return to read this, the audio version of The Gathering Dead is out on Audible.

    Hi, just read your book in “this is the end”. I realise it was written a long time ago, but one thing I found that kept annoying me, and spoiling my enjoyment of the story; was your regular use of decimate, when you meant devastate. Decimate means to kill one in ten, not everyone. Otherwise an enjoyable tale. Thanks, Jim

    Hola Stephen,
    Is there any time frame for Last Town #3? I’m a huge fan of this story and looking forward to reading more!

    • February 11, 2015 at 10:41 am

      Ed, it’s in process…can’t give a drop date until it’s done. 🙂

    Dear Stephen.
    I bought your ebook Last Town #1 on Amazon and I enjoyed your writing, but I was forced to ask for a refund, since I couldn’t comfortably read it. Because neither the Kindle desktop App nor the Kindle Cloud Reader supported text scrolling. It didn’t even need to be smooth text scrolling, like every single Browser, E-mail Client and PDF Reader does, line-by-line scrolling would be fine, line-by-line like those black terminals started doing around 1980s, like the small visor in my microwave, that I bought in 2006.
    If you sell your ebooks in a store with a decent reader, please let me know where.

    • December 20, 2015 at 1:56 pm

      Sorry, these products were released in the same way as every other product I’ve put out. Not sure what the technical glitch is, I can view it fine on my desktop app and over a Kindle. Apologies for the trouble.

    Hi Stephen: i have just read the tribute you wrote for your dad. A great insight into what happens when radio personalities need to “advance” their careers. I only heard of the Weird Beard on the Crusin’ LP back in the 1970s. We had nothing like it here in the UK. And to think – this class act was from 1962. We really were so far behind the US. I hope you are learning to live with your father’s passing. Kind regards. Tim Arnold, Slough, UK.

    Hi Mr Knight!
    I read and thoroughly enjoyed all your Gathering Dead books and Novella and all the Rising Horde books too! I have just finished ‘These Dead Lands’ – I read it in 4 days such was it’s quality(I was up to 7 a.m in the UK finishing it!) Thought the characters were great and I also liked the way you give the reader a bit of hope – too many Zombie novels (I ‘m looking at you Mr Keene) are simply exercises in misery – Really looking forward to the sequel! Best wishes from not so sunny England!

    When is The Retreat #6 coming out? Been waiting a year…

    • November 8, 2019 at 2:51 pm

      You’d have to ask Joe McKinney. He says he’ll have a draft ready for review in December.
