There Is No Money In Books Writing (Publishing)!

There Is No Money In Books Writing (Publishing)!

Or also – Why I am giving up now and with White Flag waving now surrendering!

A few days back, a Senior Corporate Official (now retired!) had visited me at home to check on my health after he had learnt I had a Prostate Operation and was admitted in ICU at Royal Hospital early this year of 2016!

I showed him My Home Library where I keep my 47 books (46 English and the one in Arabic on Road Safety Novel Book – sponsored by PDO in translation and in publishing!). He was really impressed and wondered out aloud why The Society is not aware of the achievements – and if aware – why there was No Support to such talents, skills and innovation in Literary Circles in the country!

He was shocked beyond belief that even The Road Safety Books – even supported by PDO – was getting lukewarm reception – even from The Authorities and NGOs involved in Road Safety Awareness – which with the way we are driving – especially The Youth – and Our Future too – we need these books badly! His own words repeated here!

He also wondered why The Higher Education Institutions in The Country (and GCC) were not after My Arab Management Books – as Reference Books – as there are few books written in Arab Management and In English and by The Locals themselves – as there are VERY FEW of such books!

He got the shocks more when I told him that Jashanmal – The UAE Books Sellers and Agents – had returned ALL MY BOOKS SAMPLES – saying they cannot stock or distribute these books!

I have also explained here on Family Bookshops have closed down in Oman where they stocked my books! WHSmith – we had differences with their Sales Team – one person who enjoys our hospitality of Oman welcome and reception – but I personally think he is ‘against any talents demonstrated by locals to shine!

I complained to The Omani Owners – but in the end I had to give up! Surrender with White Flag – as we had surrendered in The Zanzibar Bloody Revolution – where Omanis especially were butchered in cold blood – and we had to line up and bow down to a not even Muslim person from the island! Our Great Friends and Protectors left us in the lurch – and betrayed us!

So The Great Person said to me – The Only Reason I can see is that People in High Places especially – Do NOT LIKE what you are writing! And even if ‘they support you on The Road Safety Books – it will lead to the other books recognition – which they feel impotent not to Stop –as you publish in USA – and it worries them that you may involve The USA Embassy etc. if they do that!

It seems there are are strenuous concerted efforts to keep you down – to muffle and marginalise you – as if you do not exist – and there are no values or esteem in your books – and what you have written!

They prefer you to ‘push the dirt under the ‘stinking carpet’ – or why wash the dirty linen in public! In this strive, there are our own too – The Old Guards – and The Mafias – and started even in killing your columns even – because you say and speak The Bitter and Painful Truth!

It started also in your job career and prospects – and now is in Your Books too! So sad and tragic!
Because like you always say too – No one can defeat a person who never gives up! – Babe Ruth! And writing is the only profession where no one considers you ridiculous if you make no money! – Jules Renard! And so many others as in your websites – and main Books one at http://www.myownmajid.com

So I asked him – Tell me! What should I do now? Should I give up – and just wave The White Flag of Surrender? He was so confused and perplexed – and gave me blank disbelief stares! He did not even touch the dates and fruits – and declined even the cup of coffee!

He just told me – Keep good place your books. Preserve and Safe keep them!

One day people will be looking for them desperately! Maybe it may not be in your life time – but trust me – it will happen! As it has happened to many others in Oman – found and revered posthumously even! Trust me – he said!

Just to Share With You Please!

Best wishes and regards,
Majid Al Suleimany

Special Recognition for my A Cry For Help! Book

Communications received from Trafford Publishing USA that they are investing 50% for Strategic Marketing and Advertising of my Arab Management Book – A Cry For Help! – Context and Perspectives! – Arabian Management Series by Majid Al Suleimany – published by USA Trafford Publishing!

This is the confidence that they have on the book!

As a special concession they have agreed that my 50% – USA Dollars 2700 can be split in 3 installments.

As you all know I only live on my Pension Salary now! 😦 !

I am also looking for support for my Road Safety Awareness books –

Being The Safe Driver! – http://www.createspace.com/4097374http://www.bethesafedriver.comhttp://www.myownmajid.com

Behind The Wheel! – http://www.createspace.com/4655681http://www.bethesafedriver.comhttp://www.myownmajid.com

For The Banks and Financial Institutions etc. – the CSRs of Corporates – please note that not all things in life is Money and that there are National Worthwhile causes that may be too slow and even may not generate even any profit – but the cause is still worthy of mention, recognition, merit and award.

I wrote an Appeal Letter to two high Prestigious Banks – and they just ignored me! One was an Islamic Bank!!!

May Allah God Direct us all to the Right Path and Ways Amin – Amen – and Restore our Compassion, Imaan, Faith, Mercy, Kindness and Compassion AMEEN.

Especially in This Coming Holy Month of Ramadhaan! Ameen –

My Books in Arab Management are now in ebooks format!

Good News!

My Books in Arab Management are now in ebooks format! See below letter from The Publishers Trafford in USA. The book also A Cry For Help! had been converted last month to ebooks.

I believe this is an achievement fror a Omani Author, Writer and Columnist to have his books in Arab Management (in English) recognised and established due to the books demand worldwide. Please note that Trafford Publishing USA had converted the books free for this Author due to many requests worldwide .

This Psychology book is sold out in Oman bookshops. Sadly they will not order directly and want me to order the books for them! And I am just broke…!

And that is the Oman (Arab) tragedy for all openly to see! I can see similar lack of support for my next book in Road Safety book novel type – see posting here.

Will we ever change? I do not think so! If I was an expatriate and wrote about Omani Castles and or Butterflies – all of us will come forward to help – especially if it is a HER!

Allah Kareem. God Is Great. Amin. Amen.
