It may sound strange, but I started writing most of my books after creating one for someone else, my deceased father, gave me the confidence to do it.
I had started writing a book initially called ‘Behind The Smile’ about six years before, but it was a very long term project and I was finding lots of silly reasons not to push it along t completion.
One stumbling block was the male lead, a secondary character, but another huge problem was actual publication. I simply had no idea how to go about getting the book published when it was finished, so I did not finish it.
Silly when I look back and it was only eighteen months ago!
Anyway, I remembered a promise that I had made to my father before he died, which was to ‘see what you can [I could] do with his papers’ – automatic writings and drawings. I wanted to publish them o his birthday, which was also the tenth anniversary of his passing over.
I did that and discovered indie or self-publishing.
It gave me the courage and the knowledge to publish my own book and then to write more and publish my books myself. I have now published 112 books.
My books fall into a few genres, but some are not distinct.
My flagship series is the trilogy, including my first book, called ‘Behind The Smile ~ the Story of Lek, a Bar Girl in Pattaya’. I call these fictional biography, but someone said that that did not exist as a genre. The titles of these books are: ‘Daddy’s Hobby’, ‘An Exciting Future’, and ‘Maya – Illusion’.
I think that it ought to, if it does not and have seen this category in some book listings.
The second set of my books, which is still on-going is the ‘Megan Series’, which is about the spiritual development of a young girl. It is accompanied in her case by the development of her psychic powers, so is a book concerning the paranormal.
I like to call this series fictional biography too, but I am happy with fiction>paranormal as well There are two episodes so far (July 2013) ‘The Misconception’ and ‘Megan’s Thirteenth’.
I intend to write one of those a month for the foreseeable future.
The rest of my books, about 107 of them, are on ‘How to do …’ things: domestic, person and business activities. Some are meant as PLR seed articles for other Internet authors.
If you are looking for niche private label rights (PLR) articles, go over to http://kindlevsbooks.com and have a look at my books. Each book contains between fifteen and twenty 500-word articles, all of which were written by my over the last few years, so they are fresh and hardly used.. They just need a bit or rewriting to personalise them.
