In the light of the night
They saw the fire
In the eyes of the beast
Staring through the dark bushes
Gleaming with passion not fear
Unbudged by spears and arrows
In that moment, he spoke without a word
And all they did was paint him on the wall
- The Last Nomad
"Not all things experienced can be understood. Not all things understood can be expressed."
A couple of years back when I started writing this story, there was no specific goal in view. The joy of writing was strong enough to keep one at the desk. But the day I finished it, I wanted to be done with publishing it and move on to the other stories lingering in my mind. I was too patient to approach traditional publishing houses and wait for years to be finally published (probably with a manuscript that didn't look like mine anymore!). Self-publishing was the way out.
Amazon Kindle Digital Publishing (KDP), Pothi.com and local book printers helped me deliver The Last Nomad to its readers. With no intention of competing with the established distributors and marketers, I witnessed the book choose its readers, one by one.
Relying on the online release and word of mouth, who had the faintest idea that a single story would take me on this journey?
