There is nothing the least bit interesting about me and in truth sometimes I believe that I live vicariously through characters of my own creation in which case I should probably seek professional help straightaway. I could bore you with dry facts recited by rote but that would be contra-indicative of my personality type which demands that I at least make this somewhat interesting regardless of the enormity of the task involved. Easier said than done I can assure you.
RJ Palmer on Self Publishing
To be completely truthful I've found that more off beat authors who have acquired a faithful following have the more richly woven stories. That's not to say that authors who receive a lot of attention are not by all means talented I simply believe that in the practice of traditional publishing there are a select group of authors that receive almost all the attention for one reason or another and I believe that this is an effective way for publishing houses to tell a reader what they're supposed to like which is something with which I do not agree. In keeping with this train of thought I believe that there are hundreds of incredibly talented authors who do not get the attention that they deserve and the opportunity to share their talents with the world which would be an enriching experience for anyone who has the pleasure of stumbling upon their work.
