Write a story just for you
A Story and Some Tips
When I was working for the first company to help authors publish using digital print on-demand tech, I talked to a LOT of authors,
- Best-sellers like Piers Anthony who had grown disillusioned with traditional publishing;
- Mid list authors who had been dropped by their publishers and wanted to republish out-of-print books or finish out that series their fans wanted;
- Unpublished authors who hadn’t been able to place their novels with traditional publishers not because of the writing quality but because the publishers couldn’t see a large enough market for it.
Publishing is a business, and it’s hard to get picked, and it’s hard to stay lucky.
And if you want to ‘be published’ traditionally, you must convince someone that there is a large enough audience waiting for it.
But what if that’s not what you’re writing? Should you just stop?
