Keystone Heights, FL (PRWEB) December 4, 2005
A few years ago I suffered a heart attack and was no longer able to do construction work. I was considered a senior citizen at age 60 by most of the construction work force. The odds of being trained to be self-supportive again at my age were strongly against me. I wasn’t ready to call it quits either. My mind was still fairly sound. I could still think for myself so I knew there was something I could do. I’m not a brilliant person, but almost anyone knows computers are our future. If I didn’t want to get lost in the scrapbooks of yesterday I better get busy and make something happen. I felt the key to my future must be hidden somewhere in the computer world. I purchased a computer and got my niece to show me how to turn it and go online.
I had a strong desire to write books and now I had the time. "What are you waiting for?" I asked myself. I learned from watching Public Broadcasting shows on TV and a few books I checked out from my local library about Creative Writing. I wrote my first book partly truth, partly fiction about the experiences in my life and the lives of others I met through the years. Living on a fixed income I didn't have any money to spare to promote my book. I searched the web for publishers. It wasn’t easy facing all the rejections l received when I solicited my manuscript. One thing that stood out in my mind was what I heard one of the writers on a program I was watching one day say. “Don’t get discouraged. You just have to keep on keeping on.” I determined in my mind not to accept failure in my life, temporary setbacks maybe, but never failure.
After submitting my manuscript to many publishers in the US I got lucky. I found a publisher for my first book “The Last Train Home. ISBN# 1-59129-694-3” I didn’t get rich over night, but I didn’t expect too. I had found someone willing to publish me and that was the reward I was seeking. The more I learned how to use the computer, the easier it was to find publishers online who publish my books for free and they will do the same for anyone. I am in the process of finishing my fourth novel. So in reality my life began at 60. I will share the experience I gained with anyone wishing information about writing and getting published for free. Your book can be fiction, non-fiction, poetry, recipes you’ve collected through the years, or even a how to handy book. It really doesn’t matter. Check out my website and you will see I’m telling the truth. You can get published for free. I hope if you find my information helpful you might consider buying one of my books, but don’t worry if you don’t. I will still share my information for free. You are never under any obligation to buy anything from me. Thank you, Wayne Bryant.
