October 2018 Monthly Meeting
Mike (MJ) Kobernus presented on self-publishing. MJ Kobernus is an Anglo/American novelist. For the last two decades he has lived in Norway, but in 2018 he resumed residency in the United States, specifically Chattanooga.
MJ has always been an adventurer. He has traveled extensively in Europe by motorcycle, by train and felucca through much of Egypt and the Near East, and by car in the United States. He has lived on a Kibbutz and a Moshav in the Golan Heights, and for several years aboard a sailboat with his family in Annapolis, Maryland.
It was at the University of Birmingham, UK, where MJ studied history, English literature and language, as well as Old English and Old Norsk. Elements of these interests can be found in his writing.
He has authored several novels, the first of which, Blood in the Sand, a unique blend of metaphysical fantasy and historical fiction, was published in August, 2015. The second in the series, Blood in the Snow, came out in 2016 and the third installment is expected in 2019.
He has also written the sci-fi novel Blue Water, and the semi-autobiographical Sell up, and Sail Away, both of which will be published in late 2018.
