My love for writing is dated back to primary school
My name is Jane Harel. My writing journey started way back in primary school as I read a lot of books in the early years and this enhanced my writing capability. Once in primary school, we wrote a composition in our exams about our President and my composition was rated the best in town. We also read a lot of poetry, and thus my love for writing in poetry escalates.
My first book is titled ‘Garment of Praise, An Anthology’. An anthology is a collection of poems put together in form of a book. My second book is titled ‘Morning Dew Notebook, a notebook where you write your thoughts or keep them as a diary, while the third book is titled ‘Beautiful Thoughts’, An Anthology. Beautiful Thoughts is the book I have given out for nominations for ACABA Awards.
The objection I faced in publishing
My publishing journey was full of challenges. I wrote my first book in 2011 and the first publishing house I went to asked me what position I held. Was I a minister or a pastor? They told me that they only published for prominent people. Well, in 2011 I was not yet a minister, but now I am an ordained minister of the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. I minister through my books. The second publishing house I went to after our meeting never called me back nonetheless, the third publishing house agreed to publish my work. I was so overjoyed. At last! I paid tens of thousands but the book never came great since they photocopied, put a cover on the book and that was the final output. I lost that money.
The next publisher after the initial meeting and paying thousands of money never called back and never picked my calls. After so much crying and praying, I resorted to shelving the book for seven years, but I never forgot the work, and in addition, I did not abandoned writing. Fortunately, I published my first book in 2018 and got a good print-on-demand organization, the second book was published in 2019 and the third book in 2020.
I am now writing my fourth book which is about bareness or infertility. The book is about overcoming insurmountable odds in bareness and it is also a book of hope.
