Nokia tag line says "We connect people" but the ones who contacted me the most were Tele marketeers...The TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority Of India ) now says, 100 sms/texts per Sim card is enough for a day from October onwards....which means my cellular service provider can't connect to me even for billing.
On one hand writers say you need publishing credits to launch your short story collection....on the other hand even free e zines feel my work would stain their esteemed cyber pages. And in the second most populated country in the world; where every other educated person is a closet writer, maybe my work is not good enough. This toon below expresses my fears adequately.
And yet, every time I hear that a fellow blogger has broken the glass
ceiling of the publishing world, I am gladdened and feel hopeful.
One such blogger Gail M Baugneit has published her Pepper Bibeau
mystery,"FOR EVERY ACTION There Are Consequences" in both
trade and e book format. Do drop in at her blog. You may even win
the Smashwords coupon for the remaining 3 free copies of the novel.
Since, a lot of people have blogged about her Novelette launched,
I felt it would seem like old news.
