As an author I read many books, some could be biographies, fiction, or anything random that takes my fancy. Yesterday, I brought a book called Diary of a Married Call Girl, now when I showed my mother, she said ‘that’s a girly book’, which in theory she is correct, but does it really matter what type of books we read? Like I said before, I read any books, and I’ve even read 50 shades of Grey. I remember when that book was released, people were going mad for it, especially the women. Apparently it was meant to be a very saucy book, but from what I’ve read, I didn’t see what all the fuss was all about.
This leads to another thought, for years now men have been stereotyped because they buy dirty magazines, but for some reason this doesn’t work the same way with women. Even though the 50 shades of grey books aren’t graphical with pictures, they are graphical with their content. So the question is, what is the difference between the two situations? They are both graphical and saucy, so, I don’t see the difference.
The worst thing is, this type of material has been around for centuries, it isn’t anything new and people were making out that they hadn’t seen this stuff before. Both men and women have been buying this type of material for years, but back then it was kind of frowned upon, like it was some kind of secret. As the years have gone by, I think it has become more socially acceptable because we know it isn’t a secret anymore. Even young children know about sex and other things related to it, and sometimes they know more than the adults.
So, briefly, it doesn’t matter what you read because at the end of the day, we all enjoy different books and that’s the main thing. We shouldn’t put a gender label on a book because they are free for anyone to read. Anyhow, enough of that discussion, I think I made my point.
Anyway, today is Wednesday, which is the mid week, and it also means two days to the weekend. This has no effect on me because I have a busy weekend in store anyway, and unfortunately I have some bad news for you. Due to my busy day on Sunday, I won’t be posting a blog on that day because it will be too rushed. I hope you all done mind, but the reality is, I’m not Superman and I can’t make time just appear from nowhere. Wouldn’t that be amazing if I could?
What a busy afternoon I’ve had, or should I say frustrating! For weeks now I’ve been trying to publish my books to Smashwords so I am able to distribute them to other online stores. With every attempt I made, it failed because there would be errors in file, but today, I decided to put all my determination into fixing these problems, and I was in luck because the determination paid off. The books and now all listed on smashwords, and they will soon be distributed to every major online ebook store, what a big sigh of relief!
So, on that note, it’s time for me to sign off once again and I will catch you tomorrow.
