"Swords of the Six" passes 3,000-copies sold!

Flaming Pen Press was originally established in January 2009 to release the first book in "The Sword of the Dragon" series by Scott Appleton. The book had been rejected by a mid-range publishing house after two years of communication and a contract that was assured the author.
Well, Flaming Pen Press's first title "Swords of the Six" has met with overwhelming success. Since the book's release on March 30th 2009 it has received great reviews by readers and critics alike. On top of that AMG Publishers offered author Scott Appleton a three-book-contract upon seeing his success.
And over 3,000-copies sold as of this month!
Flaming Pen Press looks forward to pushing each of its novels to success like this SoTS.
Next on the list: "Kestrel's Midnight Song" by J.R. Parker

KMS Official cover

Feast your eyes on this. The artwork is stunning and the author ended up doing the cover design! And he did a splendid job, too. I tried a few other options, but his is by far the best.
Way to go J.R. Parker!

KMS update & Offspring

Here is the final artwork for Kestrel's Midnight Song!
Cover design will be completed very soon.
Update for The Sword of the Dragon: OFFSPRING
AMG Publishers has offered me a contract for my first three The Sword of the Dragon novels. This means Offspring will not release from Flaming Pen Press.
