The Final Touches! Finals – Between Us Only!
This is my 8th book in The Between Us Only! Series and my 15th book to date! In this book, I have included the articles that came out after my last book in the series Wipe My Tears! http://www.createspace.com/4304972 and at the End of My Columns!
Including my some ‘touching feeling articles’ to fill in the book – as there were only a handful of articles then that were out of my books!
Probably my last book – I hope you will enjoy reading my books – especially with The Between Us Only! Series as the columns have now ‘naturally died’ and ended as most things in life one day do!
It was a very difficult time to write especially this book and see The End of My Columns! But as they say – Do not cry because it has ended – but be happy because it has happened!
It was more of a hobby, self-satisfying and self-gratification in my writings and was never intended to make money! There is no money in books – as I found out the hard way – and as they say – Writing is the only profession that no one considers you ridiculous if you make no money! – Jules Renard.
I should know because Reading Habits are scarce and rare in our part of the world with especially now things like Facebook, WhatsUp, Instagram, LinkedIn etc. I was also advised to translate my Road Safety Books – www.createspace.com/4655681 – Behind The Wheel! And to sell it at dismal price of about 12 Dollars only (Omani Rials 5) – but the boxes of books remain unsold at home from ‘expected hopes in sales’…in actual fact people still want signed copies but as Free Complimentary Gifts – that is how cheap people have become.
Frankly – and smugly put – There is simply No Support for Omani Writers, Authors and Columnists – and Artists – apart from The Usual Hyperbole and Rhetoric – only for Images and Media purposes only!
Yet we have BIG Conferences on Education etc. Education is BASED ON BOOKS – and ENCOURAGING The Reading Habits – which are almost non-existent in The Omani Camp! Despite all the talks, rhetoric, images etc.!
What more can I say now? Take Care and Bye!
