Shawn Parr: Does Anyone Really Care About Authors, Books & Publishers?
The CEO of Bulldog Drummond tells us why he believes this year will be the year he writes a book, and self-publishes it.
“A person who publishes a book willfully appears before the populace with his pants down. . . If it is a good book nothing can harm her. If it is a bad book nothing can help her.” Edna St. Vincent Millay
Apparently there are millions who claim they’ve got a good book in them. Well, I think I’m one of them. This is the year I’m going to hopefully write the first of many. But as a wannabe writer I’ve got all of the obvious doubts. Do I have something meaningful to say? Will anyone want to read what I write? Have I got the time, patience and tolerance to step into the minefield of publishing? And my greatest fear is rejection from that small group of people in New York who get to decide whether what I’ve written is good enough for people to read.
