‘My Hometown Fans’ (2015)

Welcome to the Local Authors section.

Three years have gone by, and my hometown library still has not restored my books to their place in the Young Readers section: they remain exiled to the Local Authors ghetto, where no one in his right mind will ever find them.

Not to be a snob: but in this age of easy self-publishing, I don’t think people understand how blisteringly hard, trying, tortuous, soul-harrowing, and gut-wrenching it is to get your work published by a real publisher and get paid for it. I actually achieved that–but only after years of heartache.

So to get tossed off as “probably one of those self-published Local Authors writing about the kids he played horseshoes with in 1962”–well, that rankles. Like it would be impossible for a yokel like me ever to write something that anybody would pay to publish.

I still can’t get anybody around here to read my stuff.

  1. Father, in Yeshua’s name, we pray for a turn around in this situation. I know you want only the best for your children.

  2. Matthew 13:57 And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house.

    1. I wouldn’t dare call myself a prophet. Just an aging fantasy writer who had to knock himself out to get published.
