About ChrisBL
Joined October 2014
Hi My name is Chris Lakin i live in a small village on the outskirts of Newark, Nottinghamshire UK.
I am the author of a Children's book series called, Captain Grisswold with his crew and friends.
Proper Robin Hood country, the major oak supposedly Robins hide out, is about three miles up the road, I feel a new character coming on.
I write Children's fiction stories and my wife Tina illustrates for me, we are currently preparing to publish our first full book in December 2014. We are both disabled Hence my wanting to start an online business.
I have one story published within an anthology and dedicated to the NSPCC.

Hello, Chris...I'm in the states but would love to purchase your children's series. Where can I find it? My new son-in-law hails from Lutin, just outside London.
Best wishes,

Hi Chris. Thank you for the follow. How wonderful that you author children's books! I absolutely love children's literature and enjoy reading to my kids - it's my favorite activity to do with them, followed by playing their sports with them. I love cuddling up with them and the conversations that reading spark. They still curl up with me and are now 11 and 13! Wishing you all the best here at WA and in all of your endeavors!

just another time of trying to do something others find simple, to me i just can't do it right, I don't have any answers, just can't understand why but nothing is easy for me and I'm fed up with not being able to do anything without having to come back to the community and keep asking people for help and then i still can't do it. This is a nightmare, and so demorallising. not sure what I'll do about a web site, but clearly affiliate marketing is not for me, I have given it a good go and just haven't picked up the basics of computers/ links/ and understanding how things work. Thanks everyone.

I have several idea's for new websites, but i think i had better get to master one first don't you?
Reply
Gary Sanders Premium
Hello Chris! I absolutely agree with you. Choose the best idea and then develop that site with all you have. You'll learn more that way. I did not heed that advice myself and it kept my focus scattered all over the place. At one point I was trying to maintain 3-5 websites and that's impossible. Focus is key. Give that one thing all you have and you'll learn a ton and have some success. Just do your "homework" to ensure you actually choose the BEST idea. Best wishes to you here at WA!

Hi Chris, it’s nice to meet you, and TY for the follow Your profile is very interesting. Especially the part about you and your wife being disabled, because my husband and I are in the same boat and can relate. I've always wanted to right children's books too, but I have a different Niche that is my passion. Did you publish your book back in Dec. of 2014? How did that turn out, I hope it is a Best Seller:)

I’m sure your well versed in how WA works by now and are on the road to success. We all learn something new every day, but if by chance you get stuck, please feel free to ask me a question! I look forward to following you and wish you the Best in your Quest Sharon:)
Reply
ChrisBL Premium
Hello Sharon as you know business is never the same twice, I released my first book, Captain Grisswold with his crew and friends, on amazon Jan 2015 eventually after several formatting problems, then i released the second one at the end of Jan, to follow up, but it hasn't really gone to plan, as mostly since then I've been ill. or my Wife has, so we didn't do all the marketing we wanted, but the third one went on time (I was determined to release one on time) but It's been a game of catch up since then, and WA has taken a back seat to an extent too, Illness eh? who'd have Em' LOL
Best regards, Sharon i look forward to chatting with you.

Hi Chris, I'm sorry to hear about your wife I hope and pray her health will improve. I know that being an Author of Books can be very challenging and it's somewhat like a roller-coaster at times. It sounds like your a determined gentleman for sure:) If your passion is to write books that in itself is a big undertaking, I'm guessing that this is going to be your Niche to promote your books? I know how difficult it is when we have a health problem! It can slow us down or have the opposite effect, if we can sit to create it's what drives us to improve the quality of our lives. I wish you both a successful journey and that your dreams come to pass! I'll see you out there as I'm following you too

Hi Jamie yes it's pretty amazing for almost eight hundred years old, although i can remember as a child being able to actually climb in side and have a real look, now it's held up with poles and wires, and very smelly, obviously dead inside, to a child it's still a magical place for imagination, We took the Grand kids last year as it's just a ten minute drive up the road, and they came up with some wonderful stories.
But i have to say i would sooner live in Australia, Close to the sea
