My Latest book, Rise of Champions is a heart-warming story of a struggling entrepreneur. I wrote it to be funny, entertaining and straight to the point, in the hope that you can quickly see the power of these simple business principles and put them to work in your business.
One of the most common myths I hear is that a book must be a certain number of words— not too many and not too little.
Let me tell you, that is an arbitrary rule.
Here's a principle you should follow:
The whole purpose of writing is to
convey your message or story.
If you do it in a 100 words, great. If it takes 10,000, fine.
What's important is that your audience understands what you have written.
Some publishers or editors will tell you that a book should not be too big, but what about that classic Gone with the Wind with over 400,000 words?
Others will say that a book can't be too short either, then how to you explain the success of Fight Club with less than 50,000 words?
So throw away this myth and just write, say what you want to say, no more, no less.
The only real purpose of counting words is to measure your daily or weekly production as a writer, if you must. I have personally never done so. I measure my production on the number of chapters I complete.
And as a self-publisher of 7 books, I don't need to adhere to someone else's idea of "ideal word count."
And never let anyone tell you that you need to write more or less. It's a myth.
Feel free to ask questions.

I believe there is a new type of storytelling.
Just in case my fictional writing fails to leave an indelible mark upon the literary world, I thought I should claim the title as “the-one-who-named-it.”
Social-fiction is driven by the social interaction between fans and fictional characters who communicate with fans via social media.
Although the characters are fictitious, their interaction with the audience is real and the plot develops through that interaction. Real people and scenes may find their way into the story as it unfolds.
So-fi, as a genre, is used alongside any other genre, be it romance, action, mystery or science fiction. It has no limits.
