Imagine what might happen if Christian and secular readers came together in the word of God and then told the world.
Imagine readers making a difference for good in His Light.
1. With hundreds of thousands of new books published each year, how do YOU find that great diamond in the rough worth reading? You may not, because, if it’s not attached to the existing power structure it will most likely remain but a grain of sand on an endless beach. The system is designed with business chain alliances that offer a full package to sales. Diamonds in the rough will take much longer to be discovered – if ever. Does the hype influence your perception, or does it decide your mindset? Good or bad, the fact is that we are all being manipulated as consumers and most diamonds in the rough aren’t even on the radar. Whoever figures out how to generate big sales for the little guy on the Internet will change the face of online marketing.
2. Do you take an active interest in what your children read? Many parents and others have voiced their concerns about popular books that send the wrong messages to impressionable minds. Most of these people talk about their concerns, but few new options exist that have any appeal to both Christian and secular; young adult and grown-up readers. Also, some titles have become more a peer issue than anything of substantive value. Some of these other works have significant dangers where, as one example, some people would have everyone believe that there is good and bad evil, blurring the truth of the matter. Hopefully most parents can explain the difference.
Questions Three, Four, Five, and Six.
3. Currently, animated films are more successful than most live-action flicks, and that didn’t happen from only children ticket sales alone - adults and children made it so. If you were aware of an animation-like novel, would you want to read it?
4. Additionally, if that book was like watching a movie, but was really an epic novel, would you as an adult look forward to taking the time to read it.
5. Do you wait for the buzz or do you create the buzz?
6. If a very different reading experience existed would you want to discover it?
Timing is everything in life. What’s hot today eventually becomes yesterday’s newspaper tomorrow. However, what captures the hearts and imaginations today will usually last the test of time.
With deep pockets, corporations definitely have a big advantage over individuals to get their message out. So far, the Internet is free to the people, but with a glut of billions of sites, what good is it when people can’t find what you have to offer?
The bottom line is that the consumer drives the marketplace based proportionately to the marketing and advertising dollars invested. So, who is really deciding what we decide to buy? Is not the answer to that question “elementary my dear Watson?”
I hope the day will soon come when all diamonds in the rough will become a mountain for readers everywhere to discover and experience. The only way I can see that happening is by narrowing the search; making great works far more efficient to find.
