I have found now that I am publishing my 20th novel, which ties me with Charles Dickens for total novels written and published, that I prefer my novels over any others. I know that sounds completely bias, but I still read novels by other authors. It’s just that I prefer my novels over other authors. When I am finished reading a novel by another author, I am usually disappointed. But when I finish one of my novels, again, I find myself very satisfied.
Recently, I took up one of Ayn Rand’s novels and began to read it. Unlike most novels by other authors, I did not put it down after 10 pages, completely disillusioned and disappointed. In fact, I read the first 50 pages. I am still reading it and it still holds my interest. I have found in Ayn Rand and kindred spirit.
