Here is a list of subjects that have each garnered big sales and with which I have nothing in common:
- A celebrity who writes a book to tell you what they've gone through
- A politician who writes a book to tell you the way it should be
- A spiritualist who writes a book to tell you the way you should think
- An economist who writes a book to tell you how to make money
- A dietician who writes a book to tell you how not to die before your time
I'm a creative writer, an author of two fictional novels, and a sports fan, so I’ll conclude with a suitable analogy on behalf of so many passionate writers who, like myself, work very hard on our stories but often lack the same promotional opportunities as those authors signed with the big publishing houses. Just as you don’t have to be a top draft pick to have the talent to play as a professional, you don't have to be under contract with one of those publishing giants to have what it takes to make an impact on a reader and lead them through an engaging and memorable literary journey.
The history of sports is filled with examples of those who were initially overlooked and underestimated by the scouts but went on to great success. Like the two originally underrated sports stars pictured here, all I'm hoping for is a chance to prove myself to you, starting with my Beatles-themed whodunnit murder mystery titled, You Say Goodbye.
