More popular than Prince Harry’s memoirs: A loving daughter made her father’s book a bestseller 11 years after his death
Only after retiring, the man dared to fulfill his dream – to write a book
American Lloyds Richards All his life he worked as an assistant judge, at the age of 74 he completed his career.
Only after retiring, the man dared to fulfill his dream – to write a book about the most complex and mysterious cases in his career.
He worked on his first detective novel for 14 years. But the book “Stone Maidens” written by him and then published did not gain due popularity among readers.
Richards’ daughter noticed how her father was worried about the failure in her writing career and decided to talk about it on social networks.
“I grew up watching my father write a book. I knew how much effort it cost him. He worked all day and then came home to have dinner with me and my brothers. He spent time with us. And I collected small pieces of stories for the book. When he published his work, we were so excited. I was so proud of him,” shared the writer’s daughter.
The video about how Lloyds wrote his book, collected 40 million views. People on social networks supported the author, and soon sold out the entire circulation of “Stone Maidens”. True, this happened after his death.
“Stone Maidens” bypassed even the memoirs of the British Prince Harry in the number of copies.
