You must be wondering what the title of the post meant? Yes, it is still related to the self publishing of books. There are some authors that think ‘just business’ when publishing on Amazon Kindle. Some authors have just designed a business model that just produced books in lightning speed and increased their number of books in the portfolio so they make quick money and get rich fast. They would have just uploaded their books in the platform only for the sake of mere numbers and no passion or interest for writing. They have used ‘ghost writers’ and made small ebooks on random topics and uploaded them to make money. While there is no mistake in having ‘ghostwriters’; there is definitely a problem with having too many poor quality books priced higher.
The readers are smart, they would clearly understand if they have stumbled upon a low quality book and they never make the same mistake again. They would never buy that book from that publisher/author. But if you are using multiple names, then it might get tricky. In any way, long term commitment is necessary to be able to build a successful career as an author. While short term you may see some money flowing, there is no credibility as a long term publisher/author. So, it is advisable to follow the ethics of writing in self publishing world. This will also enable the dreamers of the writing career, the noble writers that are passionate about getting their first writing work in front of the readers.
Do you agree that writers are dreamers and passionate about their work?
