Self-Publishing: Soldiering On29 Aug 2013, Posted by Read My Story in
Ok, so I’ve admitted I’ve got some hang-ups about self-publishing. These hang-ups were reinforced when, while soliciting a librarian’s help in locating a difficult to find book, she asked, “Could it be a self-published book? Because we wouldn’t have those.” My insecurities were further reinforced when Maureen Corigan, my favorite reviewer, recently mentioned on Fresh Air how annoying it is when “well-meaning but ignorant” family members ask a writer, “Have you thought about self-publishing?”
At first the uniform made you feel taller
But as the wars grind on you can’t see the valor
Watching brothers-in-arms continue to fall where
Villagers you’re helping hide bombs in their squalor
How did it come to this?
You signed up to be a fighter for freedom
Justice is you call
You fight to defend our sweet liberty
And justice for all, and justice for all.
