Then you may not like this post. In my defense, this is strictly my own personal opinion, from wasting precious time reading garbage. So…

I have to say, I am really beginning to take issue with the whole entire ability of persons named-or-un-named (Okay, un-named), to self-publish. Everyone is an author now. There are no publishers telling you your book is terrible, or editors saying they wouldn’t use your story on the bottom of their bird cage.

About Sharron Grodzinsky

Author, blogger and professional seeker of new adventures. After spending many years in the healthcare field, I now devote my energies to writing. I've finished my first book, "Waiting on the Outside" (The story of my sons' journey to incarceration) and my second book, "Surviving La Bestia". (Two immigrant children make a perilous journey over two thousand miles trying to get to America.) Both are available on Amazon. Writing is not an easy task, but if you feel the absolute necessity to write, then you are a writer! I am writing my third book, "The Hanging Girl". I am also partnering with Jon Ponder, CEO of Hope for Prisoners, to bring his story, "I Am Hope", A story of transformation and hope to light. I hope to have both completed by the end of the year. A little ambitious I think, but if you don't aim for the sky you won't land there.
