The frustrations of being a writer

Silent Spring book

There are so many of us now. That’s the wonderful aspect of technology allowing so many more people to be able to create. The Amazon KDP publishing platform allows us to hold a single copy of our printed book. Before the platform existed we would have had to print a large number of books making it impossible for many people.

The success of this method of publishing is fine if you have a large social media following but if you don’t how do you become noticed? I have been contacting beekeeping groups of Facebook and one woman wrote back saying that Busy Bee and the Silent Spring was beautifully written and that she was utterly captivated by it. She added that she would buy the book for her niece. Wonderful words and very inspiring but how do I turn them into multiple sales?

There is also this balance to be considered. How much time do I spend on promoting what I have already written compared to putting down new stories and ideas? Oh well I guess that I will have to keep on slogging away.

Brown Bear’s Big Day Out

This is the second story that I published with the KDP platform. It is available for Kindle and devices running the Kindle application. It is also available for PCs/MACs and tablet with a pdf reader from Junagarh Media.

This is the synopsis of the story:

Basil the brown bear has a dream; he wants to go Dizzyland, an amusement park that he has read about in the newspaper. Getting there will be difficult as getting out of the zoo will not be the easiest of things to do. What he needs is a disguise so that people do not recognise him as a bear but as a person.

An idea springs to mind one day when a hat is blown into his cage. All he needs are some other items and what comes along next is just what he needs. It is the facemask of a famous person. The only problem is that he has to cut the nose of the mask off; otherwise it will not fit over his big nose. All set, one day he borrows his keeper’s coat and makes his way out into the world beyond the zoo.

It is a strange place, made even more so by the fact that most of the people do not seem to understand his English which he has practised speaking for many years. And the fact that people keep recognising him as someone famous, but keep thinking that the nose is wrong. Some of them find his paws hairy but this does not stop him from searching for the magical Dizzyland.
