Mark Bourrie "An Author's Hellish Ordeal" ... Indeed!
Wow! Just came across this article on Facebook and I must comment on it and share it. The title of the piece, found on Huffington Post, written by Mark Bourrie, is "Book Publishing: An Author's Hellish Ordeal."
Mark's journey was indeed hellish, much more hellish than others, but he notes that for any author, the book biz is anything but a cakewalk. As Mark says:
"The more I write books and promote them, the more likely I am to end up on the dole. Very, very few people in Canada make a living from writing books. I hope to, but the chances are slim to none."
Mark's book The Fog of War: Censorship of Canada's Media in World War Two is available at Chapters and Indigo .
