    "The Shadow of Olympus"  has a new publisher as of late December of 2014: Outskirts Press of Parker, Colorado.  In a recent e-mail to the author, Ms. Lisa Connor, an employ of that company, wrote: "You have a terrific writing style!  I can tell that you have done much planning and preparation in crafting your work..."  "Right from the start your plot was very engaging..." "Your characters are lifelike...and I love... feeling like I know them..." etc.  So e-mail to purchase your copy.  Emmett M. Smith, author.

    I am not normally into Sci Fi. (I do like Dr Who though) Gothic horor is more my thing. But..for you!..I will be a convert and I will try to get your book. I have heard of you..I think. Thank you for bothering to look at my art.

    The re-editing of "The Shadow of Olympus" took three times longer than I had expected, but the book is back on the market.   See it on and ignore the old "pink" edition (which somebody forgot to delete). The price beside the "purple" edition is the correct one.  The Author.

    I am a huge sci-fi fantacy fan, but need things to calm down a little... I teach 6,7 and 8th grade reading, coach chess and go to school (married w/two kids)...

    But will check it out.

    Smooth sailing in all your games,

    maybe I buy this but I wish it was about another solar system because I don't think mars harbors life.

    My unsatisfactory relationship with Author House ended in July 2014 and I  found a new publisher, "Outskirts Press."   "The Shadow of Olympus" is available from: with a new, purple cover and the author's picture on the back.  The book will be featured in The Book Exposition of Ammerica in New York City this year.  Its first sequel will be available some time in the first half of 2016 (probably as an e-book sold from my own website at first).  Emmett M. Smith, author.
