John M. Davis


Welcome to my world! I’m just a regular guy who is enjoying life, extremely happy and I also happen to write books for a living. I have nearly 20 published pieces out there so far, and have produced everyone’s favorite science fiction hero in Dalton James(Gunship). You’re welcome. Outside of writing, I’m a man of family, faith and friendship. I’m big on tattoos, fitness, acoustic music and spending time at our family’s countryside getaway. No internet, no distractions and all kinds of time to focus on what’s truly important in life.

I don’t write for money or prestige. In fact, as someone who practices Minimalism, I could absolutely care less about money. I write for a living because it makes me happy. So far, I’ve written a #1 bestseller(The Fleet) and a couple of books have landed in the #2 spot(Amazon Kindle). I give all of the credit to my readers! They make it happen through social media and I appreciate every single one of them.

I offer several free books and if you hate them, you hate them. In the event that you enjoy reading one of the freebies, there are several more to choose from. Thank you for taking time to learn a little about me. I’m the most accessible writer on this planet. I may not be able to respond right away, but I always respond to my readers. I’m generally on Twitter daily(too much, actually), but you can also reach me on Facebook or at

John currently lives in the beautiful mountains of Virginia with his wife, their two spoiled children and a couple of dogs who also think they’re spoiled children.

Hubby and daddy by day, science fiction/steampunk author by night. Check out the Gunship series of books on Amazon Kindle.

  1. Are your books selling? In 2006, I created the Lacy Dawn Adventures Project. Three short stories have been published, two in print magazines and one in an electronic magazine. Rarity from the Hollow, my first novel, was published by a short-lived ebook publisher started by the Acquisition Editor for the University of Michigan Library. In 2012, it was reprinted by Dog Horn Publishing located in Leeds. Unfortunately, sales have been poor despite several glowing book reviews and blurbs, including by the Missouri Review, Darrell Bain, Piers Anthony, Barry Hunter, and others. I believe that several factors may have contributed to my lack of success: poor self-promotion skill, mixed genre of the work, book covers that didn’t target a specific audience, lack of advertising funds in the budgets of small presses.

    It is hard to imagine earning a living. My aspiration at this point is to finish the sequel and, assuming continued good health, devote much more time to writing when I retire in a couple of year. Bob

  2. I’m actually working on a 40+ page short read on promoting work when self-publishing. Yea, sales are solid but Nicholas Sparks isn’t exactly looking over his shoulder just yet. It’s pretty much a mixture of using social media, staying on top of the trends and doing a lot of work, rather than handing it off to a publisher. I’ll let you know when the 40+ pages are available. Thanks, Robert!

    I also like to write fast paced action type stories, maybe its because I have the attention span of a fish ha ha. I also like your honesty and down-to-earth nature, I have a couple of tattoos as well :) And the isolation of secluded country retreats helps clear the noisy clutter from your mind so the good stuff can bubble to the surface, doesn’t it? … will check out some of your books. :)

    • Thanks for the kind words! Taking the time to slow down absolutely helps everything, including writing. Personally, I just hate reading a book that’s 500 pages, with only 100 that really interest me. So I just write those 100 or so :)
