Milton: My Name is Milton Kelly and I am an author of three books. My first two inspirational books “Walking In God’s Path Toward Your Destination Volume 1” To Change Your Mindset and “Walking In God’s Path Toward Your Destination Volume 2” Building A Personal Relationship With Him. I recently published my third book “The Real Purpose of Networking.” The most important thing about me is that I am a Christian who loves the Lord.
DWED: Have you always aspired to be a published author?
Milton: Not Always! I didn’t even have plan on being a published author. I didn’t think I could ever be an author because I had thought I wouldn’t be good at it. People had told me that you have a book in you and you need to share your story. I had recently become a published author after dealing with depression in my life. I had thought my life was over but God had a better plan for me by helping me to create a new chapter in my life.
DWED: Would you say the journey was easy or hard? Why?
Milton: The journey wasn’t easy because there were some people didn’t want me to become an author. They had wanted me to grow and tried to keep me down but I was determined to write my book every day regardless how I had felt. I had to push hard with the faith in God to make my journey of writing to become a reality. Reverend James Cleveland had mention in his song “I don’t Feel No Ways Tired” that the road wasn’t going to be easy but I came to far to give up now.
Milton: First the Lord had inspired me to write. Georgia Woodbine of GW Network and Andrew Morrison of Small Business Camp both had inspired and encourage me to write my book.
DWED: Are you a part of a book club or organization?
Milton: I am part of Amazon Book Club, Amazon Author Central, Author Connections and Black Authors Connect. I also belong to EBook Publishing Group on Facebook.
DWED: Let’s delve into your writing. Can you tell us about your published work?
Milton: My book “Walking In God’s Path Toward Your Destination Volume 1” To Change Your Mindset and “Walking In God’s Path Toward Your Destination Volume 2” Building A Personal Relationship With Him are both Inspirational books. These Inspirational books will help you to have a healthy spiritual walk with God and have a personal relationship with God. For you to have a personal relationship with Him you must first get to know God for yourself. Also this book will help you to change your attitude about life.
In my new book “The Real Purpose of Networking” I am showing my reading the importance of networking. A lot of people don’t know what their purpose of networking. In today’s world you need to network to establish opportunity in the business world and in the job market. This book will help individuals with the understanding of the process to have a successful networking experience.
DWED: What can we look forward to seeing from you throughout 2013?
Milton: In 2013 I am going to be publishing several books. I am also going to start my own publishing company. I want to give back to the community by sharing resources about how they can write their own books if they put their mind to. I also want to start to have a book fair for independent authors.
Milton: I am using social media like Facebook, Linkedin, Google Plus and others. I am writing blogs daily to promote my books. I am volunteer my time by writing article for newsletter and magazine. Also I doing interview on radios and blogs to promote my books. But the best avenues that I had used are word by mouth. I let people that I know about my book daily.
DWED: What would you say to all aspiring authors like yourself?
Milton: To all aspiring author don’t let anyone or any obstacles stop you from writing your story. Everybody have a story to tell. Even when you don’t feel like writing please just keep on writing. Writing is the easy part of creating your book. Get advice from experience author who have success in publishing their books.
DWED: Is there anything we haven’t covered that you would like your readers and potential readers to know about both your work and yourself?
Milton: I want my work and my life to be a blessing in somebody life right now. We need to encourage each other right now because you will never know who are hurting at this moment.
