ok..... well, if nobody here hasn't read it...and,it has sold 10 copies yet.... I'm getting scared.
I gave a copy to my dentist, when I went to get a tooth extracted.
Hope she likes it.

Chances are like the millions of other books written there is no money in it, if that’s why you wrote it, your probably screwed, and if this site is your spring board your really screwed most of the people here are eccentric and unique and there friends are few and far between that they would recommend a book too... :idea:

Your lucky you have a book out there, that's good and you can give to people to read and they will know your a talented writer... :o

Who knows what makes a Harry Potter or 50 Shades of Grey hit it big, but I suspect unless you capture kids and/or women as your audience your cooked and both are very difficult to talk to and keep their interest much less write for… :smoke:

I think I'll offer my novel to the *SPAM* company next time they call. In fact, I think I will write a new story every month and send it to them.

They deserve it.

It's a little like making it big as a musician...it's a combination of things...ambition, talent, connections, luck...

Don't forget to buy your way into the academic club. If you don't have a full college education, most publishers will not take you seriously.

But, whatever...a person cannot write to pay the bills or to become a famous writer. A person just has to write.

Fuck it, anyway. I was in a flea market the other day. There's tons of books there if you want one. Why would I add mine to the pile? So I can be Dean Koontz?

bleh!

Hey man, I didn't read the book because I was afraid I would like it and be jealous. I'll do what I can in the next weeks to read it...but don't let the lack of interest get you down.

Start another novel today.
