What if we could each submit our own “golden rule of publishing?” What might you change? What would you keep?
Thou shalt be allowed to finish stories. In some format. Somewhere.
How many times has your new favorite book or TV series been cancelled right in the middle of all its glory? Arrgghh, so frustrating! One of the series I’m reading was cancelled by its publisher last summer, three books in! It drives me batty because the characters I’ve come to know and love are suddenly stuck in this gigantic awful limbo where I’ll never. ever. find out their backstory or get to see their conclusions. Urrgghh!
The expansion of e-books and self-publishing options is helping this tremendously on the book side—thankfully, the author of that fave series of mine is continuing it on her own.
How about you? What rules would you champion?
