This is my book (a kind of creed)

Available from Amazon

This is my book.

There are many books in the world, but this one is mine.

My book is my creation, the product of my imagination. I had to master my imagination to make my book.

My book, without readers, is useless. Without the ability to write, I would be useless. So my book must have readers. And I must write in ways that entertain & interest my readers, or they will not read my book.

I have. And I will.

My book is unique, because I am unique. But that does not matter.

What matters is my book is also fun, because I have made it so. And that is how I live my life -- to have fun and be the best writer I can be. I work hard at the craft of writing, and I pay attention to the effect that my writing has on others. Thus, my life and my writing are one.

Now that I have written my book, I need you to read it.

I need you to read it and tell me what you think of it.

Many have told me that they enjoyed my book. Even so, I continue to champion it. I will do so until everyone has read it. I will do so until everyone tells me what they think of my book.

I do this because I am proud of my book. I also do this so that I can make the next book even better.

This is my book. This is my creed.

Thank you for your time.

(The above text was inspired by the photo someone sent me of my book -- and by the Rifleman's Creed.)
