Revisited Hourly History and Read Subhash Chandra Bose

I had stopped downloading the free books from Hourly History for some time by now.

The Hourly History publishes two titles every week and makes it available free for two days. Every Friday, the subscribers get an email on the fresh arrivals. In addition to fresh new titles, some other titles are also made free. The audiobooks of many titles are also provided free of cost.

It was nearly two years back that I subscribed to their newsletter. I downloaded free books regularly for some time. I even wrote reviews on those books on my blog. In the case of two or three titles, I also posted a comment on the book product page on Amazon.

Gradually, I became disinterested in their titles. From the very beginning, I was critical of their content. I hold the same objections even now.

I gradually got disinterested because, in some of the emails, I did not get an offer of any new title as I had already downloaded many of them. There were some repeat offers.

Another cause of disinterest was that I was not able to appreciate the contents of some of the titles. The titles are generally biographies or trends in the history of a country. The main thing is that if you know something about a personality or an event, the reading of the title helps you to remember about the personality or the event. If your knowledge is more than what the writer of the title was able to tell, then you do not appreciate the content.

I have read many of their titles. I have posted reviews on some of the titles. But all the titles were not of much interest to me as I did not find the content adding to my information or understanding.

In spite of disinterest which I had gradually developed, I was impressed by their ability to frame the chapters. That had kept my interest alive in their publication and downloaded many of their titles. I read their titles but did not post any review on my blog or commented on their product page on Amazon.

On the whole, I was amused by the idea of Hourly feature of the series. Each book is generally spread over 40 to 50 pages. You can easily read them in one hour. On the whole, they are small pamphlets which are called books. The idea of smallness did not attract. Somewhere, it went against my perception of a good book. The counting of pages and words for me can never be the standard of judging the level of a book. The content should be written with responsibility. The language should be lucid. The author should be allowed to demonstrate his skill with words to express an idea. He may be brief in writing an opinion. He may be entitled to spend wordy fire to exhibit his art. But to restrict something to the few numbers of pages did not attract me. Gradually l learned that it was not only they who were doing that. Even Oxford University Press was indulging in such a type of product in the Short Introduction Series. I appreciate the brevity of expression, but the limit of pages or time for finishing a reading did not attract me as a standard of quality.

Recently when I received the email from the Hourly History, I clicked it open. I found that the structure of the body of the email has changed. There was a link to a website. On visiting the website, I found that it was more elaborative and informative about the Hourly History activity. The link to the website is given below.

It is prominently written at the website that the Hourly History is about the “Concise history books that you can read in one hour”. It is their USP.

One can learn from the details provided on the website that the Hourly History has published 229 as on February 8, 2020. It further tells that the Hourly History works with authors from all over the world. That is quite revealing. They do not tell the name of the authors. They claim that the author is Hourly History. But now they have accepted that they are more than one person. It is discernible to a critical reader from the narrations in different books. It is not the work of a single person. 

It is one of my other objections that they call themselves as writers of History, but they do not follow some of the basic norms of history. They do not reveal the source of their information. They give full play to the creative writing norms, but that is not meant for the history writing and literature. No doubt, History is also literature. A history book has to be written in a way that it gives an interpretation and observation. They perform that task. But it cannot be called history. They are just telling stories and using the term History for their accounts. 

On their website, the Hourly History has openly revealed that it is working from Ireland. Earlier it was not prominently shown in their emails. One could have learned about the place of origin only after minute scrutiny of the body of the email. Now, it is open that it is operating from Dublin, Ireland.

After a long time, I have downloaded another book from the email list.

I acquired the book titled "Subhas Chandra Bose: A Life From Beginning to End".

One can go through the preview from the embed review given below.

Another thing fascinates me that the Hourly History produces many titles which are specific to Indian History. Most of their titles are on European History, American History and the Middle East History. It seems that there is a writer on their panel who has good knowledge of Indian History.

The Hourly History has spelt the name of Netaji as Subhas. Being an Indian, I may spell it as Subash. I am not sure how would a Bengal native would pronounce his name.

There are eleven chapters in the book. The whole book is completed in 37 print pages. Does it fascinate any reader?

In 37 pages, the writer has brought out an image of Netaji. Many readers would not like to appreciate the version and picture which the essays depict. The writer has taken up the issue of the political conflict between Gandhiji and Subash. The author has also touched upon the personal life of Netaji. The childhood of Netaji has also been given a peculiar touch within the background of Bengali milieu.

A comment by the writer fascinated me, which he made about the correspondence which took place between Subash Chandra and his father. The writer found the contents of the letter as highly explosive, and he expressed astonishment that it did not attract the attention of the colonial government who had the policy of screening such literature and letter. Well, the writer has given his version.

The writer has used imagination to narrate the episode of the death of Subash Chandra in the air crash. Where did he found the description of his death? The author has not revealed that. It is another feature of the Hourly History books that in case of some titles, the writers demonstrate their imaginative skill at their best. A similar example can be suggested by mentioning the title on Rasputin. Some of their writers are probably good novelist or screenplay writers. It is my view.

Open Secrets by Maloy Krishna Dhar


It took me a long time to close the reading of Open Secrets. The full name of the title is Open Secrets – the Explosive Memoirs of an Indian Intelligence Officer by M K Dhar.

The book contains thirty-three chapters and a long Prologue. It was the contents of the Prologue, which held me long. I developed an impression that the author was a self-righteous person who intends to guide the state on the methods of running an intelligence-gathering machinery and police administration. It made me learn something about the author from the book details, and I learned that it was written by an IPS officer who had worked for IB for a long duration. I do not know the civil services rules, but according to the writer, he was allotted West Bengal Cadre. He was earmarked during his training period for Intelligence work, and after spending some time as a police officer in West Bengal Districts, he moved to Delhi and got absorbed in IB. He was forcibly retired from the services during the tenure of Prime Minister Narsimha Rao for fumbling with the ISRO espionage case. Anyhow, I continued the reading. I had received this book free of cost for being a Prime Member scheme of Amazon. I earmarked it for reading on a Tab during my official duty where it provides a long duration of inactivity. That became the cause of taking too much time for reading this book.

Like the author, I have already talked too much about myself. However, I enjoy the freedom of saying whatsoever, and I want to say, as I am posting it on my blog.

Before I write further, I recommend the reading of this book.

The readers can look into the preview of the book given below.




The author had discussed such issues of Indian politics at the national and international level, which were new for me. I believe that it may be same for all such readers who believe in reading a quality material that can be entertaining and informative.

I learned about the East India separatist problems in detail for the first time. The author worked as an intelligence operator of India in Manipur and Nagaland. I can not authenticate all the information about the social and economic aspect of those regions, as everything was new to me. The author seems to have first-hand information about the tribes of East India. He knew about their culture, social structure and their mindset. Therefore, the reader who is interested in East India issues after the Independence of India, the book will be highly beneficial. The general public should also read the text to get the full definition of India.

The case of Sikkim was another addition to my knowledge after reading the book. The issues related to Punjab were quite refreshing, and I can authenticate the information provided in case of Punjab as I have lived through the tumultuous period of Punjab. Some of the information was new to me.

Similarly, the information on India and Pakistan relation, the relevance of Canada in the matter which is still an important issue was quite an addition to my understanding.

The author of the book had worked under the tenure of Jawahar Lal, Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, Vishwanath Partap Singh and Narasimha Rao. He made many generalisations based on history and gave an incisive observation on the history of Modern India. No doubt, he was an IPS officer with good family and educational background. 

The author has adopted a literary style in writing each chapter. Every chapter begins with a quotation. Some of the episodes have a touch of a novelist. Somewhere one feels that he is writing as per the manual of the literary styles.

The author has tried to hide many truths. He was probably under a constraint to give only clues about some of the people who were in power. However, in the case of Buta Singh and Zail Singh, he is quite open in the later chapters. 

The author has tried to project himself as a man of high moral stands and refined virtues. He is open to reveal that he has a liking for and linkage with RSS. He has identified many RSS stalwarts about whom the present generation does not know. He claims to be an acquaintance of Dhirubhai Ambani and holds him and his family in high esteem. An intelligence operator has taken sides and became judgemental. I do not know how a more mature reader and knowledgeable people would evaluate it. The author had tried to convey that he had written this book to start a debate in the country. I have my views and a new reader of this book have his views.

The author has written another book with the same opening title but the subtitle of that book is India’s Intelligence Unveiled. Apart from that, there are some more titles to his name. Probably, they are being made available by his Mainak Dhar.

Mainak Dhar, another writer, who is the son of the author and found mention in the book, is also an author. His books are also available on Amazon and from Booksellers.

क्या स्वयं-प्रकाशन लाभदायक व्यवसाय हो सकता है? (भाग 1)

क्या स्वयं-प्रकाशन लाभदायक व्यवसाय हो सकता है? यह प्रश्न केवल भारत में ही नहीं पुछा जाता है बल्कि पश्चिमी देशों में भी उतनी ही तीव्रता से उठाया जाता है|

मेरा विचार है कि  स्वयं-प्रकाशन पश्चिमी देशों में ज्यादा प्रचलित है| ऐसा नहीं कि भारत में इस सम्बन्ध में कोई रुचि या चेतना नहीं है| जहाँ तक मेरी जानकारी है अमिश त्रिपाठी और सावी शर्मा ने अपने लेखन का सफ़र स्वयं-प्रकाशन से किया था| उनकी लोकप्रियता के बाद ही स्थापित प्रकाशकों ने उन्हें अनुबंधित किया था|

आंकड़ों पर आधारित अगर बात करनी हो तो 2017 में Jeff Bezos ने अपने shareholders को यह अधिकारिक सूचना दी थी कि उस वर्ष उस की कम्पनी ने 1000 से ज्यादा प्रति लेखकों को एक लाख डॉलर्स के लगभग रायल्टी का भुगतान किया थाउसी वर्ष में एक अमेरिकी निकाय ने आंकड़ा जारी किया था कि अमेरिका में प्रति वर्ष 10000 नए लेखक सामने आते हैंइन आंकड़ों की चर्चा मैंने अपनी पुस्तक, हिंदी में लिखी पुस्तक को स्वयं प्रकाशित करने की सुनहरी किताब: A Golden Kit for Self-Publish a Book Written in Hindi (EBookWriting 1) (Hindi Edition)” में सन्दर्भ के अनुरूप की भी है|

जब से स्वयं-प्रकाशन के माध्यम को अपनाया है, मैंने इस माध्यम से सम्बन्धित जानकारी प्राप्त करने में लगा रहता हूँ| इस के लिए मैंने कुछ सम्बन्धित पुस्तकें पढ़ी हैं| इस माध्यम से जुड़े आलेख जब भी मिल जाते हैं, मैं उनका अध्ययन करने से नहीं चूकता और उन की प्रतिलिपि अपने पास संजोके रखने का प्रयत्न करता हूँ|

मेरे अब तक के अध्ययन से जिस स्तर तक का मुझे बोध मिला है वह कुछ बहुत असत्यवतविरोधात्मक और व्यंगात्मक निष्कर्ष के स्तर तक पहुंचा है| जो लेखक खुद को सफल स्वयं-प्रकाशक बता रहें हैं, लगभग सभी ने खुद को स्वयं-प्रकाशन की विधि सिखाने का कोच घोषित कर रखा है| लगभग सभी ने पुस्तकें लिख रखी हैं और कई तो अपनी पुस्तकें मुफ्त में उपलब्ध करते रहते हैं| इस को वह सफल प्रकाशक और लेखक बनने के लिए Marketing Strategy बताते हैं और उन पुस्तकों में बड़े मासूमियत भरी शैली में बताते हैं कि सफल लेखक बनना और उस पर स्वयं-प्रकाशन के माध्यम से सफल होना सम्भव नहीं है परन्तु अगर आप उन से coaching लेते हैं तो आप स्वयं-प्रकाशन के माध्यम से इसे सफल व्यवसाय के रूप में अपना सकते हैं| अगर आप ने उन की मुफ्त की पुस्तक Download कर के पढ़ ली तो आप को मुफ्त में subscription प्राप्त करने को कहा जाता है| आप शायद उन के newsletter को subscribe भी कर लें और ऐसा करने में कोई हर्ज़ भी नहीं है तो आप को हर दिन एक email मिलने लग जाएगा| उस में कई प्रलोभन भी होंगे और कुछ मुफ्त के सुझाव भी होंगे जिसे प्रयोग में लाना आप की विवेकशीलता पर निर्भर करता है| इसी प्रकार के एक लेखक ने यहां तक कह दिया कि आप अपने लेखन से कुछ भी न कमाए परन्तु यह आप से अवश्य कुछ कमा जाते हैं|

इस से पहले कि मैं अपनी बात को आगे लेकर चलूँ, मैं कुछ और भी स्पष्ट करना चाहता हूँ| इस लेख के प्रश्न का उत्तर जितना पाठकों के लिए आकर्षण का केंद्र होगा उतना ही मेरे लिए भी है| दूसरी बात यह कि मैं मूल रूप में Textbooks लेखक हूँ जब कि इस विश्लेषण और उस पर आधारित उत्तर का फल उन आकड़ों और case studies पर आधारित है जो मूल रूप में नावल्कारों से संबंधित है|

कुछ बातें मेरे अपने अनुभव और कुछ निरंतर अध्ययन से जो सामने आती हैं वह इस प्रकार संकलित करता हूँ|

पहला यह कि आप को छह महीने तक कोई खास सफलता हाथ नहीं लगेगी|

दूसरा केवल एक पुस्तक प्रकाशित करने से कोई बात नहीं बनने वाली| आप को निरंतर लिखते रहना पड़ेगा| इस बात पर आप को एक अच्छी खासी चर्चा विभिन्न पटलों पर और पुस्तकों में मिल जायेगी| अगर आप लगातार हर महीने कुछ राशी रायल्टी के रूप में प्राप्त करना चाहते हैं तो आप को लगभग 10 Titles प्रकाशित करने होंगे| एक पुस्तक का लेखक कोई लेखक नहीं होता है| जो लेखक सफल हैं वह 30 से 60 पुस्तकों के लेखक हैं| इसे आप एक साधारण से सर्वेक्षण से खुद ही पता कर सकते हैं| इस के लिए आप उन लेखकों की Amazon Ranking को देखें तो वह हमेशा ऊंची बनी रहती है और उन की पुस्तकें भी 200 से 400 के बीच में होती हैं| इस में मेरे सर्वेक्षण में Science Fiction और pornography के लेखक ज्यादा सफल दिखाई देते हैं| बेशक यह अवलोकन पश्चिमी देशों में बिक्री पर आधारित है|

तीसरी महत्त्वपूर्ण निष्कर्ष यह है कि आप को marketing करनी ही पड़ेगी| आप को अगर पैसे नहीं खर्च करने तो भी आप को दूसरे मुफ्त वाले तरीके अपनाते रहना पड़ेगा| एक लेखक के विचार को उठाते हुए मेरा यह कहना है कि अगर आप ने 5 से 6 titles प्रकाशित कर लिए हैं और एक साल में आप की प्रति title 10 प्रतियां भी बिक जाती हैं तो आप सफल हो| इस में आप को कोई ज्यादा कमाई तो नहीं होगी परन्तु आप को इस से यह समझना लेना चाहिए कि आप मैदान में आ गए हो|

Marketing का सब से मुफ्त तरीका है कि आप अपनी पुस्तक Kindle Select में डाल दो| वहां से कमाई कोई ज्यादा तो नहीं होती है परन्तु आप को यह जरूर पता लग जाता है कि आप की कौन सी पुस्तक पाठकों को आकर्षित कर रही है| मुझे Kindle Select की Calculation का फार्मूला आज तक समझ नहीं आया है परन्तु अपने case के आधार पर मैं यह कह सकता हूँ कि 10 pages के पीछे 1 रुपया मिल जाता है| अगर किसी महीने आप की कोई भी पुस्तक नहीं बिकती तो Kindle Select में उस के पढ़े जाने की सम्भावना बनी रहती है|

जो चर्चाएँ विभिन्न फोरुमों पर मिलती है, उस के अनुसार जब आप अपने साल के खर्चे अपने लेखन से निकालने लग जायो तब आप सफल हो| उस के लिए आप को ऊपर दी गई बातों को अपना होगा|

मैं अभी सफल लेखकों की श्रेणी में नहीं आया हूँ|

To be Continued.

Advertising and Marketing by a Self-Publishing Writer - Reposted


Prologue
It is a reposting of an article which I have written and posted on my Author Page. It is an answer to set of questions which I have come across on different platforms. It is an opinion.
______________________________________________________



There are many apprehensions and dilemmas on the saleability of books with which a self-publishing writer wrestle. They are the cause of forming such questions.

1.  Will the book sell?
2. How will one sell the book?
3. How will the writer advertise his book? How much has to be spent on such activities?

Let me begin with a display of the report of my sales which had taken place in the last thirty days up to November 23, 2019.




Allow me to present my analysis on display. I am not a statistician (I envy them, and I do not know much about statistics). I direct your attention to the arrows in the display.

The arrows are aimed at three countries, namely India, America and Germany. These were countries where my books were bought. I substantiate it by adding that I am from India and write with an Indian audience in mind.

Look at the titles which were sold. They are five.

To achieve the figure for sale for November 2019, I have adopted following means. 
1. I regularly posted on the multiple blogs on the titles. I  have published four books in the last sixty days. The posts on them provided information on the release of the titles. One of the titles is an older one. It is a well-received title by now. I keep on writing about the subject matter in that book on my blogs.
2. I have availed the services of Amazon Advertising. I have started ad-campaign in the category of sponsored items.
3. I have developed three pages on specific titles on Facebook. I posted separately on each page.
4. I post the information on my timeline on Facebook.
5. I have availed the Free download campaign of Amazon only for two days. I did not promote this campaign.
6. I have not availed the Google Advertising. I find it cumbersome. I have not developed faith in their results.

For achieving the above results, I have not made any special efforts. I have incurred a cost of nearly ₹ 200.

Apart from the above-mentioned sale, there was sale in Kindle Unlimited also. The collection from KNEP is never much. It has remained less than ₹ 100 per month for the last twenty-four months. However, I believe if the books were read in that programme, it was a result of the marketing and advertising pointed out earlier.

In brief, to promote my books, I have used the following three methods.
1. Blogging
2. Facebook
3. Amazon Advertisement

My Impression
For me, the fascinating thing is that my titles are sold across the borders. The copy sold as a paperback. Some months back, and that was in July, another paperback was bought in Japan. The books were sold in America and Canada. I do not find any possibility of a sale for reprints within India. The main reason is that the prices become too high because of the customs charges and courier expenses. In Europe and America, it is generally less than 10 Dollars or Euros. Secondly, the paperbacks are manufactured on those continents, and they have simpler customs regimes. Apart from that, the ebooks have been sold on Amazon.com, and that could include a more prominent geographical region. All this had been achieved with the help of marketing and advertising methods mentioned earlier.

I hope that this analysis may have answered the question with which this article has begun. To be specific, I state that the book sells if you adopt some substantiating marketing and advertising methods.

In the case of writing posts on the blog, it should not hold any writer for making such an effort. The writing is the actual nature of the writer. The writer may write his book. The writing of a post on a blog is also an act of writing. It compliments his actual activity. Therefore, writing a post on a blog is not a wasteful activity. If one writes, then only a reader will get a chance to read. I must bring in a recent survey from MRUC, which states that the readership of printed news media is increasing. Their readers are there.

Now the issue of selling of the books. I believe that who is bogged down by apprehensions of the possibility of finding a buyer is the victim of their thinking. They have to grow out of binding of their region. They have learned about a peculiar process of impression development in mind while living a particular society. They have to expand beyond their social limits. There may be intelligent and successful people in a social system which force you to follow a set course of success. You learn that you have developed this mindset in a particular ecosystem. You have to burst out the chains of their ecosystem and set yourself free. BREAK Free. Then only you can frame the right questions.

The evaluation based on the actual profit made is a reliable criterion. Even I want to earn a lot of money. Who does not? But, for a Self-publishing, you have to check the questions which you frame. Become aware of the process which formed that question. After that, you must learn to learn. Yes, learn to learn. Do that on your own. Therefore, the principle is to learn on your own. It requires a different type of formation process. You have first to learn, that to be scientific, it does not mean that you get the reports of the scientific associations. They are good. But, your dependency on the reports only for the results is not okay. Being scientific does not mean to collect a large quantity of data. That is one of the methods. But you must learn another way of a scientific approach, and that is experienced by doing an activity. That will change the diction and form of a question.
