It’s important for me to share this with you, my audience. I know people who are authors and who’ve written many books.
When a book is published traditionally, there’s often a list of guidelines and requirements the author must adhere to. Traditional book publishing is big business and it has been for a long time.
The problem with it is that publishing companies (traditional) often have the final say over what gets published, what gets written, how it gets written, and unbelievably, the title of the book itself sometimes.
Traditional publishing, because it’s big business, does not like to stray from what makes them money. They’ll publish a writer, but he can’t write this, and he can’t write that, and he can’t put these pictures in the book, and he can’t call the book this, etc.
Llewellyn, a huge publishing company, chose not to publish my book because it had the word Prophecy in the title. I was shocked considering the type of books Llewellyn publishes, but this is an example of what I’m talking about.
My books are self-published. I wrote them, I edited them, I titled them, and I paid to have them published. This is authorship at the grass roots level.
Two of my books have been published, while one sits next to me complete. Smorgasbord 3 Prophecy and Poverty was complete three months ago, but there’s not much I can do until I save enough money to have it published.
Not only is Smorgasbord 3 complete, but I’m working on fourth book that’s going to be about astrology.
The point I’m trying to make here, is that when you purchase my books, you’re not getting something curtailed for sales. Weather it’s short story fiction, poetry, non-fiction, personal stories, political and religious opinions, you’re getting it in its rawest form.
As a nation of sovereign and free people, this is the type of work you should want to support.
