in the dark ages of publishing, which is to say twenty years ago when i sold my first book, an author had to endure rejection. . .and more rejection. one’s manuscript went to a publisher, a rejection was issued, and the writer had a choice of a) sending said manuscript to another publisher or b) slitting one’s wrists.
these days, there’s self-publishing. or what was once called “vanity” publishing. it’s not that the self-publishing author is vain. it’s that the self-publishing author is sick and tired of rejection.
i haven’t actually self-published my latest piece but that’s only because i have a very good friend oj dorson who knows how to upload or download or whatever it is that makes a story show up on the shelves, er, pages of amazon.com. i also have a friend tony tyner who is killer at making cover art.
so if you click here http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DEQQZTW and download it. you don’t even have to have a kindle to do this! and if you have stories you want to make available to others, you can do it too. by yourself or with a friend like oj.
