Now that I am done with nearly a 1,100 word blog rant, let me focus on something that is a little more exhilarating than the last few posts. I am trying to be more upbeat with the things that befall me throughout the adventures of being a self-published writer and the problems that come from reading other authors. Although I am apt to bemoan, bewail, and belittle other writers, I feel the need to pull someone from the same field and include that writer as a modest example.

Fortunately, I did not have to go far to find him. In fact, while I kept browsing through Smash-Words, I managed to find his book. It’s called ‘Black Coke.’ Though I have not heard of the title before (something fairly unique), I do think this book serves as a great example for the self-published writer. Like most other writers out there, this book is not perfect per se i.e., free from grammatical and punctual mistakes; there was a small handful of errors (one or two). Sometimes I think the endings were too short, but I can dismiss that for only one reason: it’s action-paced.

However, the characters are easily identifiable and are interesting to follow. The beginning has me warped into trying to follow through this psychotic butcher (Amonite) and a field agent (Nathan). Even with the plot driven, action filled, and short paced dialogues that occur as elements to the book, I will argue that the novel does a tremendous job in keeping my interest by exposing me to something that I have never heard of before: Black Cocaine. I did a quick search on the term and it turned out that the author was using a real reference to a toxic chemical.

Even though I am about 27% of the way through the book (about 140 pages), I feel extremely warped into the plot. I hardly recognized the amount of time I have spent reading something like this. Nevertheless, I will continue to keep everyone posted about what happens next in the dialogue.
