Publish or be damned?
It’s okay, I know the original and thank you *Arthur Wellesley for the inspiration, but in this instance the above phrase is the right one.
As a writer I read a lot of books. I love my books. Well, other writer’s books, I mean. Mine are pretty good too, and I am still somewhat surprised that I have been able to write the number that I have; and I am still, writing and surprised.
My study has shelves and bookcases full of books.
I do not own a kindle.
And that should tell you more than enough about me as a reader.
Sadly, and perhaps a little stupidly, it also says more about me as a writer than I have been willing to admit. Until this morning. Hence the post.
Just because I struggle to read a book in electronic format doesn’t mean one or two other people might not enjoy it thoroughly.
I have one book in print so why not get the rest out there; even if only in electronic format?
Maybe it’s time to dust off the other six completed novels on my hard-drive, stick my stubbornness where the sun doesn’t shine and have a serious look at Amazon?
One can be stupid all one’s life but one is never too old to learn, right?
