As of the end of July, I have sold 123 books for the year. This is now my fourth year selling at least 100 books in a year, and my third best year. I know for a bestselling author, this is probably a bad weekend, but I’m not a bestselling author. I’m an unknown author struggling to get found. Personally, I am proud of my accomplishments, even though they might seem small to some…check out my books on my webpage: http://stanleythorntonbooks.com
My Sci-Fi short story collection released in early 2021. I did not sit down to write Sci-Fi. The stories formed in my subconscious and slowly pushed themselves forward.

I have just released my ninth book, The Recesses of My Mind. It is a collection of sci-fi short stories. I used this name because I did not sit down to write science fiction stories. The grew in the deep recesses of my mind and slowly pushed themselves forward. I then wrote them down and polished them up. Once the final story made it’s way out, I was ready to put them together in a collection.
Having released my newest book, It Sleeps Within, I have now brought my total books to a total of 8. Two non-fiction, five fantasy, and one horror…I am currently working on a collection of short stories.
If you’ve read one of my books and enjoyed it, be sure to let other people know by leaving reviews. Reviews are golden to unknown authors like myself.
As I sit here, I have started the last death in my horror novella. It’s been a long trip, but I’m finally turning up the last road toward it’s completion. Of course, then comes the couple of beta readers, then the editing and cover art, then all the other things that are part of publishing a book. Then comes the proofs and final examination…and then the final release date…It’s amazing how much of the work of publishing a book comes after the writing….but I’m so much closer today than I was when I started this project. Then I have to hope people like what I wrote….Back to writing…
