DO-IT YOURSELF... OR NOT...
Self-publishing is a hot topic in the writing world these days, but is hardly a new event. A few writers who took this route included Lewis Carroll, mark Twain, Zane Grey, Edgar Allan Pose, Walt Whitman, and Anais Nin. Not all grew rich on these efforts. In fact, Mark Twain's publishing business went bankrupt according to a Boston Globe article.
So, let's leave it to the LadyKillers this coming week to tackle the subject. Come join us with your favorite morning beverage, and join in on the talk about self-publishing!
And now, a somewhat pointed comment by Oscar Wilde, to enliven the conversation...
“In old days books were written by men of letters and read by the public. Nowadays books are written by the public and read by nobody.” ~Oscar Wilde
Oh, Oscar, OUCH!!
