It started with a few stories written that I wanted to see what people said about them
The Predator free on my site here https://sites.google.com/site/autherdab10/books/stories
I had first posted it with the pen name Dab10
now few know the story of that pen name
my real name is
David A. Brown
and when I was a child my grandmother was in to all sort of esp and divination things
in one of those books was a numerology book that broke everything down from 1-10 (as i look now I only see 1-9 online) but my birthday broke down to 10 so there is a pen name.
I made a friend who helped me edit these stories BarneyR (his pen name)
so I got some good reviews and some encouragement and did three more short stories ready to go
Princess Gives It Away I put out free on smashwords. then on amazon
this is the one that is still on the charts on amazon
this one topped over 100,000 downloads and is still going
then I was going to put out two more and it was suggested that I keep using the pen name because it was known.
so then the pen name was more recognizable then my real name plus it gets less confusing if searched you’ll find Dab10 Author on the first page but David A. Brown, you wouldn’t find me in the first 10
the thing that made me self publish was a horrible experience we had a house fire. no one was hurt but the house was ruined and we lost lots of stuff.
for those with more then idle curiosity here is a link
now you all know my secrets… or not lol
