I don’t know what to do with my book now

I don’t know what to do with my book now

You’re going to laugh, but I’ve finally finished my book. It is already, written, corrected and revised 100%. And yes, I am aware that it has taken me more time to correct it than to actually write it, but that was something that didn’t depend solely on me.

I must admit that I may have been too obsessed with grammatical and orthographic perfection, I’ve just read a book in its 4th edition and, even so, I found mistakes in it! But hey, that obsession with perfection is something that characterizes me and that I don’t think will ever change.

The problem comes now.

I already have the book written, revised and corrected; I already have the book finished and I am satisfied with the final result and, nevertheless, I have no idea what I want to do with it.

I have had very clear from the beginning that I don’t want to write to end up storing my texts in some lost hard disk, I want that people can read what I write (that’s one of the reasons why I have a blog), I want to be able to publish my books.

And now, that I have finished my first book and that I am happy with it, I am afraid. I know it’s difficult to send a book to a publisher that accepts it, and that scares me, I’m afraid to send it to one publisher after another and get nothing but denials and rejections, I’m afraid of the influence that may have on my perception of the book.

So here I am, with a finished book kept safely so that no refusal can damage it and, unfortunately, saved and forgotten where nobody can read it.

 


I leave the book trailer here so that you can know a bit about it.

    It might seem scary at the beginning, but you have put so much effort on it and the world needs to see it!

    Algo en lo que se ha puesto tanto esfuerzo debe salir a la luz. Quizás ahora no sea el momento pero no lo archives y lo olvides porque podría llegar a ser algo grande!
