At times a writer just needs to hear or read something to put the passion back into their work. I have to admit I relish those jeweled sites where an author shares their experience. Writing a novel is a long road with plenty of ups and downs in it so it’s always a pleasure to read something positive to put the energy back into your writing. Here are some sites I found of interest.
• Mike Wells; The Green Water Blog and his post on how 3000 copies of his book Wild Child went from the trash bin to selling on Amazon Kindle and earning the number one spot on the bestseller list. It's definitely a Cinderella story for writers!
• Another great inspirational story is self published author John Locke and his climb to the bestseller list on Amazon's Kindle. I believe one of his books Saving Rachel has Hollywood even interested in turning it into a film. It’s truly another writer’s HEA – what could be sweeter?
As of yet I haven’t read any of these authors books so I have no idea what they’re like. But I have to say I’m definitely intrigued to see what the hype is all about.
As always it’s good to hear the literally world is still thriving. So to those of you who are about to put pen to paper I wish you happy writing and much success!
