Good afternoon (at least where I am).

I'm gearing up for my second novel release in February but it's the first in a series. The genre can go a couple ways so I wanted to run it by you guys to see what genre you would put it in. Here's a general description:

The story is about a special forces marine seeking revenge on his father's murderers. There's a focus on drama and action (think Jason Bourne) with the added element that he has the ability to turn himself invisible (think Daredevil). The source of his ability is divine (supernatural), not scientific. Others with abilities show up as the series progresses.

That's it in a nutshell. That being said, what would be the first genre that comes to mind that you'd list it under?

Thanks ahead of time.

Here is my thought for the day. Should I use a penn name when publishing or my real name? That is the question. What do you guys think?

Bless night to the self publishing community, I am seeking some information on ways to self publish, if there is any one interested in sharing any tips, I would be very grateful.

I'm getting ready to self-publish my book and have just received back final edits from my editor. Should my next step be to get the interior design and cover? Or should I bring in a marketing person first?

"We're authors." We. Are. Authors. Hahahaha. I just can't get enough of saying that.

I wanted to holler after them, "Oh, yeah? But are you selling any books?"

Any one here who has published an e-book earlier? Looking for some tips.

Huh. I wonder if this will be the time-saver it seems. Well, for me.
I found an interesting feature in MS Word that might change how I edit documents in the future. It’s the “Compare Documents” feature. Take two files, say, Original and Edited Copy. Then insert them into the grinder, and out pops a marked-up document just…
