Remember The Reader

I would hope even though it's hard to keep getting rejection notices that writers will keep writing. I have said before that I have never let that stop me from going on with my career. I know it might sound crazy to some but I refuse to give up.

For the last several weeks I have been trying to focus on what I can do to help new writers keep writing and what I have come up with is to show them how I continue on. I am writing a new book because it makes me happy. That is really what’s important.

Many people have asked me why I have self – published books. My answer is always the same. That wasn’t my original plan. I now feel so lucky that self- publishing has turned into a very impressive division of the writing world.

When my books are being read, the reader isn’t as interested in the publisher as they are in the author. They really don’t care who publishes the book, they are reading the story. If they like what they have read I have done my job. With all the talk about self publishing, the one thing that is hardly ever talked about is the reader. If the reader is happy I am happy. So, when you’re sitting at your computer wondering if what you are doing makes any sense at all try to remember, give your reader a good story and they will come back for more.
