What I would add to this book of stark warnings for would-be authors:
If you were going to become a serious writer someday, you would have altered your plans, ambitions, education, lifestyle, and your very spirit when you were quite young. Becoming an actual author is a humbling process of self-imposed sacrifice and suffering. It is not a career choice for anyone who expects it is easy or glamorous.
People should write because they love to write. An honest look at what they have written would inform them if anybody at all would read it.
Self-publishing is more like Facebook posting than actual authorship, and this lucid book spells that out in clear detail. If you are not a serious writer, then please don't quit the day job, and above all, don't waste your money on all the "help" you'll be offered.
