You knew that already – right? – that age has nothing to do with quality when it comes to writing. We were reminded recently, when we discovered Robin Chambers’ Myrddin’s Heir series sitting quietly in the Amazon Kindle Store, hidden in amongst a million other books all jostling for attention.
Laura Ingalls Wilder, author of Little House in the Prairie, didn’t publish her first book until she was well into her sixties. Frank McCourt didn’t become a published author until he was 66 – Angela’s Ashes, became a best seller and won the Pulitzer Prize. Joe Corso – a 4 time top 100 best-selling author – started writing to help his grandchildren pay for their college education. He’s still writing at the age of 79. The list goes on…
Now we at Publishing Push are on a mission: to get as many of you as possible to give Book 1 in 72 year old Robin Chambers’ Myrddin’s Heir series: “A Wizard of Dreams” just 15 minutes of your valuable time: because we firmly believe that’s all it will take to turn you on to this exceptional series written “for bright children from 10 – 110 years”.
That’s pretty much the readership that was/is captivated by The Chronicles of Narnia (C.S. Lewis was 52 when the first book in this series was published), The Lord of the Rings (J.R.R. Tolkien was 56 when he finished writing it) and the Harry Potter and… books. (OK, so J.K. Rowling was only 25 when she first got the idea for those – we did say age had nothing to do with it!)
