When we write our first book, we’re driven by inspiration and enthusiasm. As this cartoon publishing video shows, it’s easy to have stars in our eyes, dreaming that our book might just be the next big seller. But many first time authors know nothing or very little about the publishing industry, or even about writing, and that ignorance can lead to them rushing into signing up with the first publisher who shows an interest in their work. Making uninformed choices can not only cost them thousands of misspent dollars but also leave them terribly disappointed, their dreams shattered. It is indeed a sorry tale and, unfortunately, all too common. Jason’s story does have a happy ending, however.
What’s the moral of this cautionary tale? And why does it have a happy ending?
