‘’Get married and get to love your spouse over time. That’s what makes marriage work!’’
It’s been a long walk to the literary success mark that I’ve attained as a writer. Having diligently put in all hands on deck to horn my craft in writing and summoning the courage to endure ‘’countless’’ rejections by publishers and literary agents, I can repeat the words of the Late Nelson Mandela ‘’It’s been a long walk to freedom’’
I began my writing career fully February 6, 2006. It was a hard nut to crack situation having to translate the dream of my being a writer to reality. Writing and re-writing were what characterized the build-up of my writing resume. To cut the long story short, I had endured over three hundred rejections from different literary professionals. However, despite that and not having the funds, I still expressed my love for writing all through the years
Today, I am a published author of several books; they cut across various fiction and non-fiction genres. See amazon.com/author/mrben
You become a better writer through practice; getting to read works by your favourite writers, attending writer’s conferences and most of all, do it yourself—develop your writing style.
‘’Great books are measured in the content and manner in which they are written but not the shadings and trimmings of grammar’’
To quote that wonderful philosopher, Whinny the Pooh,
“The beginning is a very good place to start“.
For me, it all started was when I was looking for a great book to read.
I finished reading the last book by my favourite author. It would be another year, maybe two before his next book became available.
This meant I needed to search for another book to read. I was even willing to stray from my usual genre to find an excellent read.
Something easier said than done.
You would think, with over 45 million books on Amazon alone, finding a story to enjoy, a book you can immerse yourself in totally, would be a pretty easy thing.
But no, it is not.
Finding and selecting a book which looks like it will meet your criteria is not a simple affair, not if you want to make as certain as possible you will enjoy reading it.
You could, of course, look through the thousands of free books on offer. But…. much of the time there are reasons books are offered for free, or heavily discounted by their authors… and not all those reasons are good.
There is the uncertain quality and content of many of the full priced eBooks. Anyway, do you really want to commit spending your hard-earned cash to buy something you do not enjoy reading or find the writer’s style is not to your taste?
It all makes choosing a ‘new to me’ author or selecting a book from a different genre a bit of a lottery.
That is when I thought there must be a better way.
I asked myself, “HOW CAN YOU MAKE CERTAIN A BOOK YOU BUY WILL BE ONE YOU ENJOY?”
That is when I had my eureka moment.
The result is Electric Eclectic Books.
