Six Question Saturday with Arthur Daigle

It’s possible I grabbed a picture of the wrong Arthur. Maybe. We’ll probably never know.

Here’s our author for today’s Six Question Saturday!

Arthur is the author (no jokes, please, he’s heard them all) of five books. These include William Bradshaw King of the Goblins, William Bradshaw and a Faint Hope, William Bradshaw and War Unending, William Bradshaw and Fool’s Gold and Goblin Stories. These books were almost inevitable given that the author has been a fan of science fiction and fantasy since he was old enough to walk. Major influences include the works of the puppeteer and filmmaker Jim Henson and the British artist Brian Froud. Expect more books in the Will Bradshaw series, as all attempts to stop Arthur from writing have failed. Continue reading “Six Question Saturday with Arthur Daigle”

Part IPart II ~ Part III – Part IV

If you have decided to go wide and don’t want the hassle of managing individual accounts at every single retailer, or if you want to publish on Google Play right now while new accounts are frozen, you’ll use a distributor for at least some of the retail channels.
