I’m not a book author.
But I love reading.
And I love books.
So I bought a Kindle on Amazon’s Kindle store.
And for the next few months, I read the books on it, and I loved them.
I loved the stories, the plotlines.
I found them to be richly written.
I loved the fact that I could read them on my Kindle as if I was reading a book.
It felt right.
I love books so much, in fact, that I decided to try to become an ebook author myself.
I’ve spent years thinking about how I want to write, how I would like to write the stories that I love.
So far, I’ve never quite gotten it right.
I’m still trying to figure out the best way to write a book, to create a story, to make it as compelling as possible.
But my biggest challenge is that I don’t have a book idea.
I have an idea.
But it’s not the book I want.
I don’t know what it is that my readers want.
What kind of stories they would like?
And what are the challenges?
I want people to be able to read a book and not be turned off.
I want them to feel that they have a voice.
They feel like they’re contributing to a world they want to be part of.
So my next challenge is to write something that I’m proud of and that I think is worth reading.
What is it that I want readers to be excited about?
And then, how do I tell the story that I would want them, in my own voice, to read?
So my first goal is to create something that would have a story that is exciting, but also that is unique.
I know that’s hard.
I don, either.
So I’m going to make this a challenge.
It’s a challenge to think about what makes a good book, a good story, a story for me to read.
And then to find the right kind of story for the Kindle.
First, let me say that I do have a few rules: I don of course write in my head.
I am not writing for the internet.
I do not have the same skills as other writers.
And even when I’m writing, I’m working on something different than most of my peers.
So my book will not be a copycat of anything.
It will not look like a copy of anything, a copy from any other source.
It’ll be different.
It won’t look like any book I’ve ever read.
It might look a bit like a book from a bookshop, but I’m trying to write my own story.
I’m trying not to copy other people’s stories.
I also don’t want to copy the style of my book.
I just want to think my own.
I’ll have a bunch of great ideas, but no one else is going to be reading them.
And that’s OK.
I will be honest with you, my book is going not to be a good fit for everybody.
Some people will like it.
Others will not.
But the first book I sell on Amazon will be a book that they want.
And those who buy the book will want it.
And the Kindle users who buy it will want to read it.
It can be read by a lot of people.
But if you’re like me, you’ll like it a lot more if you buy the ebook.
It’s not about what your Kindle reader likes.
It is about what you like to read, and that you would like others to like it too.
I think that’s the real story.
If you want to know more about what I mean by that, go to my Amazon Kindle page and read my books.
They are all great.
But they aren’t the stories I want you to read and enjoy.
And they won’t make you feel like you’re contributing.
They won’t give you the motivation to try harder.
I would love to see you do some writing in your Kindle.
