For the published authors out there, this is an important article! Thanks for sharing it, Jack, so I, in turn, could do the same. The Big Five, which used to be The Big Six, and before that The Big Seven have much to be concerned about though. We are slowly learning that we might as well self-publish & make more per copy sold. I can’t see where they help anyone sell their books, UNLESS you are already famous. They will be happy to push you then!
I do hope that the writers will start to be a bit more discerning about what they publish & at what stage. I actually met a guy who hadn’t even done a 2nd draft! He didn’t hire an editor or even have anyone read it first. When I asked if it was POD, he had no idea what I meant.
If people will just wait to publish until their book is as good as it good be, that would help those of us who already do this. There are still people who do not count self-pub as being published.
All the best to all you writers out there! We gotta stick together & let the world know we are a FORCE to be reckoned with! 😉 ❤
Sherrie Miranda's historically based, coming of age, Adventure novel “Secrets & Lies in El Salvador” is about an American girl in war-torn El Salvador:
Her husband made a video for her novel. He wrote the song too. You can find it on YouTube under the same title as the book. Or check on some of my other posts! 😉 ❤
