Stodghill Says So

An opinionated posting on a variety of subjects by a former newspaper reporter and columnist whose daily column was named best in Indiana by UPI. The Blog title is that used in his high school sports predictions for the Muncie Evening Press.

At the age of 18 I was a 4th Infantry Division rifleman in the invasion of Normandy, then later was called back for the Korean War. Put in a couple of years as a Pinkerton detective. Much of my life was spent as a newspaper reporter, sports writer and daily columnist. Published three books on high school sports in Ohio and Indiana. I write mystery fiction for Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine and others. Three books, Normandy 1944 - A Young Rifleman's War, The Hoosier Hot Shots, and From Devout Catholic to Communist Agitator are now available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other booksellers. So are four collections of short mysteries: Jack Eddy Stories Volumes 1 and 2, Midland Murders, and The Rough Old Stuff From Mike Shayne Mystery Magazine.

The Book is Doing Well, So Thank You

The book Normandy 1944 - A Young Rifleman's War has been selling quite well and a good share of its success is due to the efforts of a few special writers at PublishAmerica. They took it upon themselves to promote the book in every way possible and it's surprising how much they have been able to do.
In addition, there have been five very good reviews written and posted on Amazon as well as three fine reviews in newspapers. On top of that, PublishAmerica has named it Book of the Week for the next seven days.
So what has been the result? Amazon lists 26,111 titles under the heading of Normandy. These are books from every major publisher in the world, many of them written by the most eminent of military writers including men such as John Keegan, Max Hastings and the late Stephen Ambrose, author of Band of Brothers. So as of today, Normandy 1944 ranks tenth. Not bad, making the top ten in a field of 26,111. I'm grateful for all the support.
