Forge Your Own Chains

E-books, self-publishing, the demise of the publishing industry – where will it all lead? They say that there are no undiscovered geniuses. That may be right but discovery can take a long time, only accelerating when channels of exposure and sharing open up. Here’s a fantastic piece of music that languished in rumour and whispers for almost thirty five years. Now it’s everywhere. You can’t spend a day in a boutique hotel from Mumbai to Miami to the Maldives without hearing this at least once in the hotel’s bar, suffering through a stitch-up of drinks and appetizers and jet-set posturing. Great message too. The key to eventually being discovered through “private pressing” is making something GOOD ENOUGH to merit the thrill of discovery. It’s something independent writers need to keep in mind – promotion is an impotent wave if it’s not carrying a quality vessel on it. A good ship will find its own harbours eventually.
