Ein Roman wie ein Lieblingssong Moses, Big City, Fünf-nach-zwölf und die anderen setzen große Hoffnungen in ihr neues Leben im "Zentrum der Welt", so nennen sie das London der Nachkriegszeit. Sie sind aus der Karibik hierhergekommen, jetzt staunen sie über die Dampfwolken vor ihren Mündern. Und wenn der Wochenlohn wieder nicht reicht, jagen sie eben die Tauben auf dem Dach. Kapitulation? Niemals! Stattdessen beginnen die Überlebenskünstler, sich neu zu erfinden – und ihre neue Heimat gleich mit. Samuel Selvons Ton zwischen kreolischem Straßenslang und balladesker Suada setzt sich sofort ins Ohr. Bedingungslos aufrichtig erzählt Selvon von den ersten Einwanderern Englands, die das Land für immer verändert haben – sein Denken, seine Sprache, sein Selbstverständnis. Die literarische Entdeckung!

How awesome will it feel to add to your resume, that you're published author? How about being able to say to your friends, family, and associates, they can grab a copy of your book at iTunes, Amazon, BarnesandNoble.com, on the Kindle, Nook, and in audio book? How cool will that be? The best part about writing a book, is this is a great way to generate passive recurring steams of revenue in the form of royalties on your book sales. Would your life improve with multiple recurring, passive streams of income? Could that help you break free the bonds of spending Monday through Friday with Dwight Schrute and Michael Scott from the hit TV show, The Office? Let me share a cold harsh reality, it's said 8 in 10 Americans want to write a book, but how many of these well intended folks, actually do it? The Department of Labor in 2012, reported less than 130,000 writers and authors, among a population of more than 300 million people. In other words, the odds are about as good as winning the lottery. The plain truth is writing a book, is a job. It requires you to invest energy, time, and effort. But, it doesn’t have to be some long arduous journey. If you listen to what the others say, you’ll hear them yammering on about investing years into writing a book, and how painful the experience is. Recently, I even heard one author say he had two major illnesses, two surgeries, and spent two years writing his book, and still has no idea what to do differently, other than purchase better health insurance for the next one. Come on man, how about trying anything differently! You see the Rosetta Stone to writing your book is following a simple, proven step by step formula. This is how you write one book and if you so choose, five more, and without feeling like your donating an organ, giving birth, or solving advanced calculous. Surely, you’ve seen an episode of the hit TV show, Shark Tank, with Barbara Corcoran, she’s written three books. But, did you know she has dyslexia, and was a D student in high school? It doesn’t require a Harvard degree, and the lack of a formal education didn’t stop Charles Dickens, H.G. Wells, Jack London, or Mark Twain, to name but a few! Look, this is my eighth book, and just like Chris Farley, in the movie Tommy Boy, I barely escaped college, in less than a decade, and started writing professionally as a college dropout. During our great recession, and have earned millions of dollars, working from home, and even part time, while finishing school. You may have even seen me on national TV in my own infomercial. It’s awesome to say I’ve appeared on ESPN with LeBron James, even if we weren’t playing basketball together. I don’t say this to brag, but so that you will take my words seriously. In this book you’ll be empowered with a simple, bite size, 11 step system to become one of the few brave courageous souls, that takes this dream, and turns it into a reality. You are a dreamweaver, let’s get busy and make it happen. Just think about what being a published author, will do for your career? Surely, it’ll pour rocket fuel on positioning you as an expert, and authority in your field. Along with raining down upon you potential media interviews, speaking engagements, new clients, the sky’s the limit. Do you hear that knocking? For it’s the moment of opportunity at your door. But, just like in the movie the Matrix, Keanu Reeves was given a choice of the red pill or the blue pill, right now, this moment, you’re faced with the same decision, what choice will you make? You see, it’s not luck, happenstance, or black voodoo magic that you’re hearing this message. Come, along now. Let’s get started with step #1, and keep in mind what Mark Twain said: “Twenty years from now, you’ll be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do, than by the ones you did do.” P.S.

You Can Get Paid to Write a Book. It's easily possible to make a fast $10,000, or even a six figure amount. You could even make seven figures --- over a million dollars for twenty pages of text. It sounds incredible, but a fast seven figures is certainly possible if you have a HOT, hot idea or have had an experience that hundreds of thousands of people want to read about. The good part is that you don't need to write your book before you get some money. You write a proposal, and a publisher will give you an advance, which you can live on while you write the book. Writing a proposal is the smart way to write a book. It's the way professional writers sell non-fiction. Selling a book on a proposal is much easier than selling a book that you've already written. A book proposal functions in the same way as any business proposal does: you're making an offer to someone you hope to do business with. (From the Introduction) Get Your Copy Now.

Even if you don't happen to be a celebrity, this book will teach you methods for striking publishing gold—conceptualizing, selling, and marketing a memoir—while dealing with the complicated emotions that arise during the creation of your work. If you've ever been told that "You should really write a book" and you've decided to give it a try, this book is for you. It hones in on the three key measures necessary for aspiring authors to conceptualize, sell, and market their memoirs. Written especially for those who don't happen to be celebrities You Should Really Write a Book reveals why and how so many relatively unknown memoirists are making a name for themselves. With references to more than four hundred books and six memoir categories, this is essential reading for anyone wanting to write a commercially viable memoir in today's vastly changing publishing industry. The days are long gone when editors and agents were willing to take on a manuscript simply because it was based on a "good" idea or even because it was well written. With eyes focused on the bottom line, they now look for skilled and creative authors with an established audience, too. Brooks and Richardson use the latest social networking, marketing, and promotional trends and explain how to conceptualize and strategize campaigns that cause buzz, dramatically fueling word-of-mouth and attracting attention in the publishing world and beyond. Full of current examples and in-depth analysis, this guide explains what sells and why, teaches writers to think like publishers, and offers guidance on dealing with complicated emotions—essential tools for maximizing memoir success.
