Official Hiatus


My wish for all of you, my darklings, is for you to experience beautiful journeys. I hope you find trails and beaches and roads and companions filled with love and laughter and purpose. 

And books! I hope you never stop discovering stories and authors and characters to fall in love with.

There is no tragedy here. My own journey continues to amaze, and my life is overflowing with love and laughter as I help young people learn how to tell their stories. This is a path I will follow for awhile, and a path that, in the end, will likely change the nature of what I write.

SM Johnson - NEW RELEASE!~ Nervous

Hello my lovely Darklings!

Nervous, my first book ever with pre-orders, went live on October 1st, and I have been remiss in not giving you a COUPON yet.

I am sorry, sorry, sorry, and fixing that now!

So just for visiting my blog, you can get a free copy of Nervous from Smashwords until October 14th, 2017.

Click HERE and enter coupon code JF37Y at checkout.

Nervous is book 6 of the Dungeon Series, but this one can potentially stand on its own, so if even if you haven't read books 1 - 5, you should still read Nervous.

Hugs and smudges,

~SM Johnson

PS. Reviews and word of mouth are the most helpful tools to authors in getting the word out about a new book, so please take a moment to write a few words wherever you prefer to!

SM Johnson ~ Release of Nervous and Dungeon paperbacks!

Hello my Darklings!

I am busy, busy, busy these days, and am no longer spending time on marketing, but never fear, I am always still writing! The marketing and self-promotion part of being an independent author was never my favorite.

There was a moment when I thought I'd increase marketing and send out newsletters and such, but... nah. There are only so many hours in a day/week/month, and I have no interest spending them on activities I don't enjoy.

I am a storyteller, not a sales person.

So in story news, Nervous, the sixth book in the Dungeon Series, is all set for release on October 1, 2017. It's finished and off to beta readers, and after a final edit, it will be yours! Please feel free to pre-order ($2.99) for your kindle at Amazon, or for any e-reader device at Smashwords.

I've never bothered with pre-orders before, so feel free to wow me with pre-order sales!

In other news, I am creating paperbacks for the Dungeon series, one at a time and somewhat slowly, but I am trying for one book per month. So if you've been wanting to dog-ear pages and store them on a bookshelf, you'll be delighted. So far I've got books one and two done, and the paperbacks look FABULOUS.

In final news... I have closed my Goodreads group, DarkSafe. It was no longer an active group, and if it were, I wouldn't have time to moderate or participate, which is sad, yes, but nothing in this life ever stays the same, right? It's why we have stories and ideas for even more stories.
