Is this my time for a mystery romance series?
With not having much to do with writing over the year, I did not realise it was time for #PitMad.
This is a time when authors go crazy and pitch stories to publishers, for this year, I pitched the opening book in my mystery romance series www.amazon.com/dp/B075BJH2D2 or www.draft2digital.com/book/235628.
A lot of people have asked hereiamattheedgeblogspotcouk.wordpress.com/2017/09/01/could-i-write-a-novel/, at one time I would have answered no, but now if the incentive is there, the answer would be yes.
I intended to take the course www.coursera.org/learn/israel/home/welcome as a means of improving my knowledge of the people of Israel, with the intention to use the knowledge in writing a sequel to my romance www.draft2digital.com/book/235628 / www.amazon.com/dp/B075BJH2D2.
I am now taking the course - the first of many I hope to take - because I enjoy learning and the course is easy to use. I have now completed week 2 of the 16 week course.
Life in Israel
I am considering taking up this online course https://www.coursera.org/learn/israel. I am interested in learning about life in Israel, as I am in furthering my mental state of awareness, pending my life in a wheelchair https://hereiamattheedgeblogspotcouk.wordpress.com/2017/11/22/compliments-come-in-many-forms/.
My friends will tell you that my interest in Israel goes back as long as I can recall https://disqus.com/home/discussion/channel-writingworld/when_the_desire_remains/. I have for a long time considered a new direction for my life as a writer; though my Science Fiction is selling http://alsdomain.weebly.com/forgestriker---the-hit-series.html /https://hereiamattheedge.blogspot.co.uk/2017/10/the-record-breaker.html#.Whw-oIG0Prc, I do not feel I earn the title of a bestseller.
I have been told what I think is little matter, and it is what others think that matters more. I would like to see more general sales for my e-books https://hereiamattheedge.blogspot.co.uk/p/barnes-noble.html#.Whw_NIG0Prc and https://www.amazon.com/-/e/B007U50BOI before I consider myself anything more than a hack writer like one of my heroes (Kolchak).
Understanding the people of Israel
To my close friends this news may not come as a great shock.
As I am unable to visit Israel, I decided to attempt to learn some Hebrew online.
As well as attempting to learn the language, I ordered a copy of the Tanakh - the Jewish Scriptures from which the Christian Bible originated from.
My last ebook www.amazon.com/dp/B075BJH2D2 is set in, Israel so I used some Hebrew/Yiddish terms in the story to add atmosphere.
Over the years, many people have paid me compliments on either my writing or the volume of my writing, but one of the greatest compliments I have been paid is that several people said I think like a Jew.
This is probably because like the Jews, I have had to fight for what little I have and I can understand their struggle to survive.
Me? A romance writer?
After all these years there are still things that amaze me to do with my writing; one is that yesterday I sold a book on Amazon, I rarely sell at Amazon.
Just as much a surprise is the book that sold is my new romance, shown above. I have read few romances, mainly older stories so I don’t follow trends.
This story was written because I have several Jewish friends and I have never wrote a story with a target audience in mind before.
Truth be told, as usual, I didn’t expect ed "A Homecoming” www.amazon.com/dp/B075BJH2D2 to sell.
Available from #Amazon www.amazon.com/-/e/B007U50BOI / #Draft2Digital www.draft2digital.com/book/235628
www.smashwords.com/books/view/719595 this week is my #romance that I set in #Israel.
There is a new cover and a low price of $1.50
A serious following on Twitter
I sometimes surprise people because they think that as I have no formal qualifications that I cannot understand many things, such as Science. I may not know the physics behind Quantum Physics, but I can understand the concepts of a Black hole and the Multiverse theory of an Alternate Reality.
My blogs https://hereiamattheedgeblogspotcouk.wordpress.com/2017/08/02/knesset/,
http://alsdomain.weebly.com/israeli-news and https://hereiamattheedge.blogspot.co.uk/p/israeli-news.html#.WZQBsFF97IU,may not be high tech and critical, but they are being noticed in #Israel and the Israeli Embassies around the world, that shows how much people respect my opinions.
I make no apology for my blogs showing posts supporting Israel. If you know me, you'll know I have always supported Israel. The blogs are not helping my #ebook sales; so I will be doing my bit to correct the media bias against the only #Christian country in a world of #Islam.
My last luxury
These days with making endless cutbacks to pay the bills that mount up, I have few pleasures remaining, one is my monthly issue of Israel Today http://www.israeltoday.co.il/
