Damon L. Wakes writes just about anything that springs to mind, producing both novels and short stories. As well as promoting his own books, he makes an effort to share the work of those who are under-read, under-appreciated, or just plain awesome.

Author of OCR is Not the Only Font, Red Herring, Bionic Punchline and Face of Glass.

He can also be found at:
You've probably (hopefully!) heard by now that I've had a book accepted by Unbound and am in the process of crowdfunding it. Well, over on my blog I've got a very interesting guest post by Shona Kinsella, who's not only also had a book accepted by Unbound: hers has been successfully funded! It's called Ashael Rising, and it's a prehistoric fantasy novel much like Face of Glass. So yeah, it's no coincidence that she was on board to review that.


I think you'll find the story behind Ashael Rising to be an interesting one: you can read all about it here.

A Notice of the Utmost Importance!!!

If you're about to thank me for a llama badge, there's really no need!

I give out llamas as a less cluttery alternative to saying "Thanks for the +fav." Please don't thank me for thanking you! It could start some kind of gratitude feedback loop that's liable to destroy the universe itself!

Funnily enough, I was reading at Not the Winchester Poetry Festival this weekend, and they introduced everybody as "So-and-so, who is not..." Naturally I went with "Damon Wakes, who is not a mongoose." :XD:

Thanks for the kind words, by the way. :-) Everybody starts out young and nobody's born with a knack for writing or drawing, but the main thing is just to stick with it and finish what you start.

Sure! Though I should mention that I don't currently have Skype on my computer. I could add you whenever I get around to installing it again, though.

So I love your FFMs every year and I just found out that I wasn't watching you (when I couldn't yourname). No idea why not! For shame!

It's easy to do that with FFM: the daily journals mean you don't necessarily have to be watching someone to follow their work. Still, thanks for the watch! I'm looking forward to this year's event: only a week to go!

Looks like you're an up-and-comer too. Wouldn't mind chatting with you about how you go about the marketing-and-writing process.
DamonWakes Featured By Owner May 26, 2016  Professional Writer
Likewise! :-) I actually just responded to your forum post: it just took a while as the reply was a bit of a long one.

No worries, you're not under any obligation (and apparently nor am I, considering my even-slower one). I appreciate the input. 

I guess the go-to questions are good to start off with: How long have you been writing?
