About Me

Jamell Crouthers is a poet, author, blogger and podcaster who has taken on a journey of writing in the prime of his life.

He is not the traditional author as he writes his books in poetry format with a focus on storylines and societal issues.

After publishing 14 books, his goals and plans are to continue writing books on taboo subjects that aren't discussed enough in today's world and bringing those main subjects to the forefront.

His goal and moniker is, "to change the world, one book at a time."

Code Blue: An Oath to the Badge and Gun Series

The Code Blue Series somehow became something bigger than me. The best way to describe it is looking at the world now and what’s going on, ...

One thing I have to say about accomplishing your big goals is you have to want it more than anyone else in this world. Easier said than done right? You don't want to do work today? Well, someone is outworking you, will that get you out of bed to do work? Yeah I figured that would do it. You're going to go through the grind of trying to get to the end goal and you're going to fail at things, there's no question about that. It's just a matter of whether you're going to let those FAILURES define you or if you're going to keep going.

FAILURE is not an option for me, I've come too far on this journey to stop. I've been writing books for 3 years, I've been recording podcasts for a year, writing these blogs for almost 3 years, recording YouTube videos for a few months and I'm still not where I want to be. I get a few books sales occasionally, have made dumb and bad investments into trying to get my books going. I've accepted that I've lost money in this whole process but if I gave up now, I'd always wonder what if I didn't and just kept going?

Nothing in this process is easy for me, I write these blogs, record audiobooks, write books, format them, make book covers, market and promote my books, record weekly podcasts, record YouTube videos, post on social media, engage on social media, writing screenplays, it's non-stop and neverending for me. There's always work for me to do and in the midst of all of this, I've failed quite a few times.

I sent my script to a production company in Los Angeles and was told it's more of a theater piece than a movie. I took his feedback and thought about it and realized that maybe it is. It doesn't mean that I won't make it in movies as a screenwriter, I could still write a movie script and it works. I spent a large amount of money on a virtual book tour for one of my books to not get one sale and my books are in at least 10 bookstores online.

The point is if you really want it bad enough, you'll keep working at what you're doing. They say it takes years to build something special and big enough to where you can make a living doing it. I'm continuing to build my platform and my brand because by the time people realize who I am and what I'm going, they'll have a lot of catching up to do (15 books, over 50 podcasts, YouTube videos, and over 100 blogs).

So today I want to instill in your mind, FAILURE is not an option. That you're going to keep going and you're not going to let anyone or anything stop you from achieving all that you want. The world is huge, with over 7 billion people, someone will like and appreciate what you're doing no matter what it is.

Today officially makes 3 years I've been writing books and I've written 15 books. So please take a moment to look at some of the societal issue books I've written:
