Why do we write? To make lots of money? Can we ever guarantee selling a book? Can we ever guarantee writing it should be the first question! I suppose we write initially because that little speck of a story has grown to gargantuan proportions deep inside our brains and is bursting to be recorded on paper. We grow grumpy, frustrated … there are so many other important things in life to do and people asking us why or what we are writing for. We ask ourselves the question, why are we writing? It’s not as though we are guaranteed the manuscript will even sell is it? When the final book is written, it is checked and checked, re-written and checked, until finally, it is ready. But ready for what? Sending to an agent? A publisher? Or how about publishing yourself? I will complete this blog shortly, but first I want to tell you about the book I have recently written and which is now for sale on Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, Feedaread.com and through major booksellers. The book is called, Jay-Pea-Eyes aka Junior Private Investigators. It’s a detective story for boys and girls and is a great first book in a series of mysteries that require the investigative skills of the Jay-Pea-eyes. I know you’ll enjoy it. If you do, or if you just want to ask a few questions, why not pop over to my website at http://www.johnpriest.co.uk or tweet @JohnAPriest.com? See you there!
