Continuing My New Year Plan

As I promised in my last blog post, I am keeping you—my followers and fans of my Ridgewood stories—posted with my progress of reestablishing order and content of my books at’s KDP and to publish a physical paperback this year.

Sometime in February I will take my books off market at Later (probably March or April) I will do the same at Then, when this project is completed, it will be available at both sites, starting with The book will feature a combination of Night of the Hellhounds, Margga’s Curse, Kismet, and a few other stories, and will feature teenager Vree Erickson and other characters I’m close to. I don’t plan on the book being a Young Adult read, but that’s something I cannot control at All books featuring teenage lead characters end up on Amazon’s YA list. That chases away many of my adult readers. My book will be a contemporary fantasy fiction one and should be listed as such.

Another change I’ll feature with the new book will be my publishing name. One I’m considering is Campbell Stevens. We’ll see.

In the meantime, I’m not purging my old stuff from the internet. This blog’s archives is a great place to find my old stories. I recommend starting with Writing > Fiction > Green Crystal Stories and reading Night Of The Hell Hounds. Another one to read in that collection is Kismet. Both stories will be part of the new book when I publish it.

For easy access, here are links to all the Green Crystal stories:

feature01 Night Of The Hell Hounds, Part 1, Part 2, Part 3

feature02 Trespassing, Part 1, Part 2

feature03 III, Part 1, Part 2, Part 3

feature04 Kismet, Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7, Part 8

feature05 In The Meantime, Part 1, Part 2

These stories are the bones—old bones, you could call them—of the start of this new era. I hope you’ll join me for the ride. I plan on making it a fun one.

  1. Old bones– hey, that sounds like something a hellhound would gnaw on… : )

    So you’d be combining and building on existing characters and storylines– kind of weaving them together, perhaps with some new material to bridge gaps and/or take things in a new direction? Sounds good!

    The idea of publishing a physical paperback sounds very cool. I’ve always liked paperbacks. What a thrill to hold one in your hands and know you wrote it. Yes, there’s a lot to be said for enjoying one’s achievements on an organic level!! : )

    Wishing you mucho success, Mr. Stevens– er, Mr. Campbell– uh… hey, you know who you are!! : )
