Letting Go



It has been some while since posting an article on this site from early August 2015. It has been a much longer time since my second book, Curtis on the News: The Unfinished Chronicles, 2008-2013 was first published in May 2015, nearly six months. It obtained no book reviews. There was not a single sale. Not a particular person inquired to me about this book or asked me "what sort of literature is it? What is your book about, what is its purpose of being published in the first place?" Yes, around the block there was zero attention for it, which I am aware of this e-book. Nonetheless, those were not the reasons I felt it was imperative to remove this electronic publication from off from Amazon-Kindle and Nook Press e-book shops online.
One reason I sensed this book is unfair to the general populace. It includes my viewpoints and commentary on news items and global issues from 2008 to 2013. The chapters have contents in them that I am apprehending reflected negatory opinions of persons and their modes of life. Even as a person is aging, this man or woman could alter or correct their outlook on matters. They may regret what was said or written by them years past.
In the passage of time, a person may have attained a greater awareness of significant matters. He or she may yearn to change his or her attitudes. Curtis on the News: The Unfinished Chronicles have stated opinions of mines I now need to withdraw, including those emitting a gloomy cloud on other human beings and associations. Therefore keeping the book on sale would be unethical to me too. I want to maintain a greater unbiased position on many issues affecting humanity. Therefore, it is good news to me that no copies were being sold.
Also keeping the book on sale may prove to be a latter hindrance to positive goals my wish to proceed on. The year between 2008 and 2013 was a hard period of economic difficulties for me. Right, lessons are being learned, yet many of us want to let go of disheartening matters and move on progressively. As an individual, there is a need to discard any discouraging reminders of undesired obstacles and human deficiencies of past years. Because Curtis on the News: The Unfinished Chronicles, 2008-2013 was also a memoir then taking it off sale was also a process of discarding those reminders.
What about the book of cartoons, that is 57 Pages? The cartoons, many of them, were based on the blog articles featured in Curtis on the News. I do remember when drawing the humorous situations I wanted to set a separate perspective than what was being addressed in the blog postings. The cartoons can exist on their own without the blog commentaries enabling them to be published as a collection in an e-book. I find numerous cartoons are more inspiring, enlightening and peremptory than what I wrote in Curtis on the News. In the forthcoming revision of 57 Pages, I further was equipped to correct and edit the gag lines. Those are among the incentives of keeping 57 Pages on sale and continuing with that book series. Thank you for reading this blog posting, I look forward to updating you on the changes of 57 Pages.
