Writing has been a means for me to say things that I wouldn’t be able to speak while in a normal conversation. Ever since I was young I found expressing myself on paper was much easier, and more fulfilling than talking, even if I didn’t have an audience.
When I was younger I had a tendency to be depressed. Often times I would sulk, not knowing why a darkness lingered inside of me. The only way I could make myself feel better was through poetry–both reading poems and writing them. I was a big fan of Edgar Allen Poe at that time of my life. Poe, and Shakespeare. I was searching for meaning in life, raking through the roots of my inner soul trying to make sense of my emotions. Those poets helped me because I saw through their characters, that I was not alone. Forever man has wondered who he is.
That’s why I love to write novels now.
My characters muse over life, each with their own personalities, each with their own voice. It is very satisfying for me to see the world through all these eyes.
I wanted to let you know that my new novel Thread of a Spider is on Kindle Scout at this very moment and will be for 30 days. I have a chance at being picked up by an Amazon imprint, but I need your help. If you could be so kind as to nominate my book for publication, I would appreciate it. In return, if it does get picked up and published by Kindle, they’ll send you a free ebook!
I really appreciate it.
