2009 was important to me because it saw the publication of my first novel, The Tarnished Star written under the pen name Jack Martin. The reason I chose the name - well my grandfather William John Martin, the man who introduced me to the genre was better known as Jack. The book is dedicated to him and it was a great honour to adopt the name.
The book has done really well, both an Amazon and Book Depository best-seller, and is still in print in a great hard cover edition from Robert Hale LTD. The Book Depository has it on offer with free worldwide delivery and Amazon also have the book at a low price. Do a Google search on The Tarnished Star by Jack Martin for the latest offers.
