All My Books
All my books are out there.
There are things I should not have written!
Things I could have done better!
And books I should not have released!
But I have no regrets.
I gave birth to them all.
They are of me.
They are the living flesh
Peeled off my bones.
They will live long after me.
They are not perfect
But they reflect me perfectly.
Opher – 4.1.2020
I am constantly told that I am doing myself no favours by producing so many books. That people will not take me seriously. That publishers and potential readers will be put off when confronted with such a large number of books.
‘Better to focus on one or two and perfect them,’ I am told.
But no. The ideas come. The ideas flow. The enthusiasm builds and a new book is born.
The idea of wasting time marketing, promoting and touting is repugnant.
Yes I do want an audience and to be recognised. But I do like to write.
These books contain my essence.
