Goodreads Author Link

Are you a part of Goodreads? I am! If anyone is looking up me or my books there, this is the author link they have for me: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/761586.Douglas_Van_Dyke_Jr_ It used to be confusing because they had me listed twice. (So many people forget the “Jr”) My books have gotten pretty good ratings over there. The latest book to hit the shelves, Trials of Faith, is...

When I first began self-publishing Trafford, they were a nice Canadian company which offered the best deal and resources for beginning authors such as myself. I no longer feel Trafford is moving in my best interest. Therefore, I will be canceling their sales of my books at the end of the year. This will also affect Amazon and all other book outlets, since my trilogy all comes from Trafford. As I’ve...
