How to Write a Killer Author Bio – Article on Reedsy…

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

It’s important for indie authors to know how to write an author bio that tells readers: who you are, what you write, why readers should trust you, and how you stand out from other writers.

An author bio is like a calling card. “It’s something that will let readers get a sense of who you are, and is an important part for pitching media and book proposals,” sums up marketer Rachel Cone-Gorham, formerly of Penguin Random House.

Gazing

Amitav Chowdhury

Gazing at the ocean makes me feel small, even a little envious of the vastness

Only listening to sounds is enough to make the sunset more mystical than I can imagine

Waves are coy, luckily, the feet can feel the playfulness of the ocean’s soul

How many worlds are contained in its unfathomable depths?

The colossal upheavals may be due to the clash between such hidden worlds  

Frothy struggles of salt water keep aways the most valiant seeker

Even the crushing pressures are some otherworldly forces to protect the treasures

That does not stop the solitary one from enjoying the sublime moments at dusk

Lucky, to have touched the reflection of an enormous world with human consciousness

Soon, darkness will be intense and the ocean calmer, for it is time to wonder

Book Review :- Elle Burton and the reflective Portals By Peggy M McAloon and Anneka Rogers.

Third Culture Wife.

I am always open to reading books of different genre but not always of the children’s book variety. Reading Elle’s story pronounced (Ellie) I quickly forgot that it was for children. The character is one we can all identify with through the various struggles and challenges she faces and later overcomes. It’s a book about Love, loss, hope, healing, kindness and a lot of things we sometimes forget to teach or remind our children to be. Though this tale is woven through fantasy, it can’t help be anything but real. Elle Burton reminds us to be brave,honest and even believe in the magic of people, friends and family. Be sure to join Elle in her adventures in this first installment.
