There is a man in your life who needs a helping hand…
You know one or more of these men they may be your brothers, sons, or friends but they haven’t picked up and read a book in year or more. Perhaps they have abandoned reading for fun somewhere in primary/high school and haven’t gone back to find the wonder and thrills hidden between the pages of a good story.
Whether we are strolling the emerald shores of the Scottish highlands, listening with anticipation for the waves crashing against the cliffs to come to a crescendo as our lovers are about to shed their shame that has kept their lips apart and become as free as the seaside’s misting spray.
Holding the pages clutched tight as we can’t help but feel a burning rage building inside as our heroine becomes blocked, put down, and is faced with an unexpected yet inevitable obstacle barring her from her love. As a reader we desire nothing more than to slap our heroine’s villainous foil across the face and shout “Bitch!” with conviction.
It’s only after we’ve put these books down and look back at the world, at least for me, feel a twinged of guilt.
I want the world to experience this joy. I shouldn’t feel bad I know there exists a good book for everyone…
Sadly here is the problem I need your help to solve.
Every year someone goes without reading a full length novel they have lost reading speed. This is a huge problem for men. During the droughts in my life: The 60 hour work weeks, the 25 credit course loads, the high school activities and responsibilities that demanded more and left no time for a vacation between the pages of a good story. My reading speed fell.
In the time it takes you to be five pages deep, surrounded by the bright sights, calming scents, and rich sounds of a million dollar beach vacation, I’ve barely met our leads…
Blessed by god at the right time in my life I found western pulp fiction.
Small and simple books that are low on description, the author trusting that my imagination could fill in the gaps. Fast paced action preformed by flat almost cardboard-like caricatures that carried me from the initial conflict to the last page.
Soon my speed and concentration were back in form and I could read not just what I wanted but books that I needed to grow as a man, husband, and servant.
We know that books have an impact on not just our emotional health but our future success. They have shaped how we are able to deal with conflict and challenges in our life. Our hearts have been broken and healed by fiction.
If you’ve asked these men why they haven’t read a book and they’ve responded. Something to the effect
“I just haven’t found something that holds my interest.”
What they may be trying to communicate is that their reading speed and concentration is too low to enjoy the greats you know they’d love.
Here’s the shill, For the next 5 days this is free and after that 99 cents is the lowest amazon would let me offer it.
disguised inside the pages of the 180 page action film of words, is a tale about prejudice, acceptance and keeping your promises.
But don’t tell them that.
“This shit’s got a dragon, loads of violence, shape shifting wolves, magic and guns…”
My beta-reader hadn’t picked up a book in two years and now is reading Dune. So I know that if you man gives this junk half a chance they will be back into the written world and finding not only what interests them but what will make them better.
Thank you for your time and attention today,
Now someone you know needs to be sold (free til June 2nd) on this book because this is something they didn’t know they needed in their life until you’ve given it to them.
