Welcome to the Official Website of Author Amy Shannon. It is also the landing page for Essence Publishing (I am the sole proprietor). My company Essence Enterprises is now official for many of my endeavors.
I have come to the realization that I can't write like I used to. With that said, I've made a decision about my writing future. My last book has been published in hardcover, kindle and paperback. It's called "My Final Chapter: A Legacy of Words." It features some short stories that I have written (some from many, many years ago), but also thoughts and essays that I've pulled from my journals.
I've decided that the MOD Life Epic Saga won't have any more releases on Amazon or other book sites, and will only be sold through my online bookstore, in digital formats only (mobi, pdf, or epub).
I thought about this for a while, and while I may still write (sometimes one line at a time before I have to walk away), this is my "retirement" book.
I have decided to revamp some of my previously published books, starting with Shattered pages. These revamps will have new links on Amazon, new covers, and updated content.
I will still review books on Amy's Bookshelf Reviews, and do the podcasts, The After Show with McKensie Stewart & Amy Shannon and After The After Show, as well as continue author and book promotions and blog tours on Genesis Literary Promotions. I will also still participate in blog tours from other blog tour companies. I am also still an editor and will glad read your manuscript for feedback, formatting and/editing.
When I have more details about this book, that I am still compiling, I will share that. Thank you for your support.

[Link] stared at himself in the mirror. He ran his hands through his light brown, short hair. He stuck his tongue out at himself and laughed slightly. “Purple. Bah!” he took off his robe and let it drop in the middle of the floor. He headed into his study. He sat down on the warm, soft cloth seat in front of his typewriter. He stared at the lines on the page. It was a day like any other day. It certainly was. No clothes to get in my way. He smirked to himself as he began typing. He typed for hours as his fingers just gently caressed the keys.
