Yes, today I'm going to rant and bitch. It's my blog, and I can do that if I want to! Here's the deal: I spend time on the things I write. I make sure they're what I want to put out, I work on the stories, and usually for a book, it's taken me months to put one together. Not months as in two or three, we're talking 10, or 11 months! And now, here we have digital publishers. I have nothing against them, as a matter of fact, I LOVE digital publishers! They really help little independents like me get rolling. But just because you can put a book out, doesn't mean you should.
Here's what I mean: I'm seeing some people brag about putting out two, or three books or stories a month. What the hell is that? Not that people can't write a book in 2 weeks, but...ok, you can't write and edit a good book or story in two weeks! Not continuously! BOOKS ARE NOT A NEWSPAPER COLUMN! Isn't the writing industry clogged enough? Now I have to write and compete with someone who is putting out 50 books a year? What the hell? Just because you write a book every two weeks doesn't make you a good author, it makes you a puppy mill author!
Ok, there's my rant for tonight.
