We were chatting this morning about what makes authors tick. After all, we are authors, too. We both understand what it takes to be published and now, to publish. But in today's publishing world where people are morphing genres (witness the upcoming film: "Cowboys and Aliens" and you'll get our drift) at warp speed; and blurring so-called "traditional publishing" lines at many levels; we decided to start a dialogue to see if we can come up with a reason authors aren't published.
We came up with two concepts: first that some authors may start on the road to being published with a negative perception that the industry is "against them" from the get-go. Second, that some authors believe the "art" will sell itself.
If both of these premises are true, and that's all it is, we are all in a lot of trouble in this business. So we want to hear from you, the writing public. I think we will find out some interesting things that will surprise everyone. http://www.villagegreenpressllc.com
