If the reviews on today’s indie author’s new book are anything to go by he has a sure fire hit on his hands. Confronting and emotional, Tears with Rain has hit the ground running. An amazon reviewer says, “A copy of this book should be MANDATORY READING for every Family Court Judge and Commissioner on the Bench. People who have not faced this problem in their lives, do not believe it is real. As a person who has, it is real, it is numbing, destroying, crippling and life changing, especially when most of the time all you can do is sit back and through tears watch the horror unfold.”
Tears with Rain, sits in one of the latest bestselling literary trends that examine life-and-death issues, such as suicide, rape and cancer. Editor, Laura Rennet (from Andrea Brown Literary Agency) suggests such works that deal with these subjects ‘demonstrates the voracious appetite that exists among teen, and a cross-over adult audience, for gut-wrenching fiction’. Not only that, but these issues are real and we all need to be made aware of them. We might not personally be experiencing them but chances are there’s someone you know that is. And its not an easy issue to talk about.
On a lighter note, today’s indie author, Len Myers, comes to writing with a background in technology and teaching. He has a house full of cats (well just 3, but thats 3 more cats than I could bear 🙂 ) and for some reason mouldy cheese and raw squid in the fridge. Maybe he could whip us up a nice little fried calamari with blue cheese dressing!!
Anyway, enough of my waffling. Let’s hear from Len in his own words. (All the best with your book Len!)
