I have re-iterated time and again that the dream of becoming a published author has become an attainable dream in the current times. The scenario is not like it was a decade back when one had to be dependent on publishing houses to get their work to reach out to readers.
And its not just about traditional publishing or self-publishing any more. It is also about the freedom that comes along with the option of self-publishing in terms of the content. You are the master of your content. The length of your proposed work today could be the usual 70k words, or you may chose to write just 40k or 25k, or even just 10k. If you think that your words make for a comprehensive and a coherent read, you are good to go and put your work out there for your targeted audience.
Ah! How swiftly I have drifted to the topic of targeted audience. It is with this propaganda of reaching out to my audience who would further shout out about my work to the extended audience, that I decided to submit my set of blog posts combined into an e-book for the BlogchatterEbook carnival Season 3 in 2018.
That was my first step, towards realizing my forlorn dream of becoming a published author. And boy! What a beginning it was. Read about my ebook Parenting & A Slice of Everything
