Please check out Mighty John Marshall’s first novel STUNG! It’s now available on Kindle for just $1.99. From the Bangor Daily News… “Rock music plays in the background of “Stung!” But the novel itself is in part a love story, in part a coming-of-age tale, but like those written by his one-time employer, Stephen King, it’s largely a book of horror. “Stung!” is an enjoyable read. Mighty John Marshall has a vivid imagination and that’s reflected in this promising debut.” If you order the download on Kindle, or the paperback version in the lower right hand column on this page, we will send you the values for every Elvis and Beatles record (over 2,000 listings) Just let us know at email@example.com
