I have several book titles to offer and, like every other author, I wish to sell my books, but I don’t expect anyone to buy a pig in a poke. In other words, who should I expect to be willing to take a chance on whether or not my writing style is any good without the advantage of sampling its flavor?
How many times have you gone into a grocery store and noticed a new product and said to yourself, “Hmm, that sure looks yummy. Perhaps I should give it a try.” But then you recall what happened the last time you purchased a particular food just because the picture on the box looked appealing. -You ended up with a bulk-load of crap that made even the dog wish for a second night of Ramen Noodles. There were also times when you went into a grocery store and noticed a product, along with a friendly person sitting in front a platter full of freshly sautéed bite sized morsels. All it took was one taste to make you want to gobble-up the entire platter – toothpick and all. The same goes for books because so many times readers are lured in by an attractive front cover and sometimes even an exciting back cover summary, but after you’ve purchased the book, or wasted your time lugging it home from the library, you discover that it is not what you expected. Wouldn’t it be grand if, before purchasing a book, you could read a few short stories by the author just to get a feel of his writing style? Yes it would, and that is why I thank Heaven for a smashwords opportunity.
Enjoy – toothpick and all.

Smashwords book reviews by Renee Pippens

  • July 5th, 1776 on Jan. 21, 2012

    Mr. Winchester is a terrific writer. In reference to his story, July 5, 1776, in my oppinion this is the style that should be used in history books throughout the country to educate our children. What we've always needed, in a classroom setting, is a way of dipicting history in an interesting and up-beat manner. Mr. Winchester has mastered this skill to perfection. Okay - there was humor involved, but isn't this the best way to tell a story if the author wishes to captivate and maintain the interest of his readers?
