Mighty John Marshall’s first novel is now available for download on Amazon for just $1.99.The Bangor Daily News writes…“Rock music plays in the background of “Stung!” But the novel itself is in part a love story, in part a coming-of-age tale, but like those written by his one-time employer, Stephen King, it’s largely a book of horror. “Stung!” is an enjoyable read.
