Thirty-six-year-old Bay Land, St Michael resident, Malcolm Nelson, has just published a book about love relationships on the international platform, Amazon.com
True Love Letters To My Exes is highly entertaining and witty book as it describes previous relationships which all “ended on good notes.”
Nelson highlighted that the book was uploaded on Amazon on the 17th August but became available for download on Kindle from the 21st August 2017.
When asked why he wrote a book with such a title, he told Barbados TODAY,
“I am someone that always cherishes stuff and they are actually true love letters that I wrote and stored them in my drawer. So, I told myself I want to start writing and using the talent that God give me. So, I took up the letters that were in the drawer, touched them up a little and turned them into a book,” the debut author said.
Nelson noted that the four women to whom he had written love letters have all shaped him into the man that he is today. “These are the four young ladies that I would say have guided my life to where I am right now. Each of them has a different strength in them and has guided me to where I am,” he said.
He said two of the ladies have been notified about the book’s publication and the others should not be worried as he created an alias in each case.
“It was Ok cause at the end of the day the ladies are named by the nicknames that I named them, so no one knows who [they] are,” he said.
Nelson said so far he has seen a good number of sales coming in for his book which is not the only he has written. He has also published another short book entitled 10 biggest deceptions in life.
The book describes many of the things that we as human beings have been deceived by and or deceive others about ranging from relationships to religion.
“10 biggest deceptions in life are things that I see every day that humans discuss. They discuss it and still don’t do anything about it [and] the problems that they have. So, I decided to write about the ten things that have a cloak over our eyes, to try and help to awaken the people,” Nelson said.
He pointed out that for him the two major deceptions are in relationships and religion. He explained the latter — religion.
“Well most people, as I cannot say everybody, [are] into being a Christian, some people may be Muslim, some people may be Hindu and I believe that everyone serving the same person. But they still think that there is some difference to each of those. But yah know religion is religion. Find who you love and fall in that path,” he said.
Nelson has high hopes for the book. He is looking to promote it more starting from next week.
