If you ❤ writing, editing, illustrating, designing, selling to publishers, or publishing books - you're a creator.
You ❤ enjoying books so much you decided to be a part of creating them for others to enjoy and share. Your imagination may run away for tens of thousands of words entertaining those who find the story. Educating and informing others through nonfiction may be what you like to create. Maybe you're the kind of author who writes both, either way, thanks for filling our shelves and kindles.
Before or after the author crafts the story or outline you begin creating a cover to show the world what this book is all about. Once the book is done you format the interior to make sure readers can enjoy it in print or digital form. We'd be unable to enjoy books without book designers or illustrators.
You make sure the kitchen door on the exterior of the house is in chapter two doesn't move without explanation to the inside of the house in chapter five. Fixing syntax and punctuation to make sentences clear make you smile. Editors are an important part of creating books.
When an author doesn't want to self publish or open their own publishing imprint you shop their books. Agents are here to help those who like printing and selling the books the traditional way to find new stories and resources to provide for booksellers to share. Many authors have found creative and financial peace going indie others don't want to imagine the literary industry with no publishers around.
We ❤ Books creators give us the fiction and nonfiction we prefer when others decide to Netflix and chill. See you at the con.
