Why first edition books must be treasured and valuedposted on 17 Oct 2020
The publication of a book is a huge day for any author. Regardless of wealth or fame, it marks a vital day for writers to see their name in print. It demonstrates that, while an individual may have always been a writer, they are now officially an author. A book having been transferred from their laptop to the bookshop, after the daunting task of passing an agent and a publisher, should give any book, of any content or genre, credibility. That so many submissions are turned down demonstrates that the stories within must be worth a reader’s while.
