The gatekeepers are gone
A very smart woman in her eighties announced she was going to write a book about her life. A life filled with riveting stories.
She witnessed the rise of anti-Semitism in her beloved home town of Alexandria, Egypt. She survived air raid bombings. At seventeen, she boarded a ship for America.
She’s a good writer and her stories will be fascinating, but sadly, it's likely they won’t be read.
She believes she needs the blessing of an established publisher.
In days of yore, authors needed publishers to distribute their work. Today we have the internet. An author writes a story, chapter, or book and click, it’s available to everyone.
