Every book, every paragraph, every word, every punctuation in itself is an author’s original. It’d be naive to ever think - “I wish I’d written this book”.

“It’s but very recently that I took to writing as a full time
profession. My soul having been irreversibly assaulted by a
sinister rendezvous with destiny is what prompted me to lift the
quill. Writing, to me, is no longer an intricate passion, the way it
once used to be during my years of adolescence, but indeed, is
it but a variant of morphine, which keeps at bay the perennial &
excruciatingly incurable pain which flares up every-time I draw
an uncalled for breath. The way readers are taking to the book
is an experience humbling. Totally unexpected. Feels unreal the
book has garnered such positive reception. To write is a pleasure
while to be read is a treasure.” – Author B R E N D O N
