It doesn't matter if what I write is complete garbage, since I can always go back and fix it, but the most important thing is just to write SOMETHING. Writer's block is best overcome by forcing yourself to just start, and not worrying about how inelegant, irrelevant or illegible the writing is. Once you get started, 90% of the time the creative juices will start flowing - often in delightfully unexpected ways.(less)

I get to take stuff that's in my brain, put it down on paper, and then people actually pay to see what that stuff is!

But seriously, having the ability to use my imagination and tell stories that I love, and then share it with others, is a great feeling.(less)

Author: Bennett R. Coles

Date: August 10, 2016

One of the biggest challenges an author faces in today’s publishing landscape is just trying to understand what’s what. Taking money from authors has become a billion-dollar business in the past ten years, and there are all kinds of terms floating around out there. As authors unravel one scam after another, the charlatans and pirates are forced to re...

This is a perfect read for middle-grade kids, and with all the fun of pirates, scuba diving and lost treasures, my boys and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Where the Hell Were Your Parents? by Nathan Weathington
Rate this book
Clear rating
Probably the funniest book I have ever read. I saw a review somewhere that described this tale of Southern coming-of-age hooliganism as "half Stand by Me and half Red Dawn" and I can't say it better. The subject matter is funny enough, but the genius ...more

Informative and inspirational, this book is a must-read for anyone who has ever doubted the way they "fit" into society. Very often it's our individual differences that make us stand out most effectively, and Mr. Verdolaga makes the strong case for e ...more

Secrets, Lies and Champagne Highs by Jeanette Hubbard
Rate this book
Clear rating
A delightfully funny, rather naughty little book that surprises with its twists and turns. But beneath the quirky humor there is a real commentary on the absurdities of modern life and a subtle depth that leaves the reader eminently satisfied.

A gut-busting, laugh-out-loud adventure that follows the meandering and loveable Leaf family on their year-long, globe-trotting adventure. Mr. Leaf's writing style is crisp, witty and highly self-deprecating, yet still manages to bring foreign lands ...more

Life in the Fast Lane by Aidan Coles

A breezy, boisterous read that taught me a lot about what goes on in the mean streets of the city. At times funny, at times tragic, this is an outstanding account from a real-life hero about what life is like in one of society's least-appreciated pro ...more

Cuddles the Cat Goes to the Dentist by Sean Kelly
Rate this book
Clear rating
This book was a delight for my kids, but it also had pages of useful info for parents at the back. A lot of common questions about kids' dental health are covered, so adults can get as much out of the book as kids do. And Cuddles is totally cute!
