Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am Scott Maitland. At the age of three, my mother told me over and over that I was the next “Steven King” (Steven King is my mom’s favorite author). I hope I haven’t disappointed my mother.
This is my first book. I’ve always loved writing and storytelling, but I never got serious about writing books until recently. I’ve written two other short books beside this one, and those were also self-published on Amazon. I consider those books “test” books. I unpublished them ultimately, because they weren’t of a high enough quality for me to put my name on.
I plan on writing for a very long time. I will write about various topics as I’m compelled by many things. Thanks for checking out my book. Get your free copy from 3/6/18-3/8/18.

War with North Korea: North Korean Leader (Kim Jong Un) Annihilated was inspired by my journey to learn more about North Korea than I was hearing in the mainstream news. I have studied and watched North Korea intensely for many years.
