The Publisher of My Dreams

By
Someday he’ll come along
The publisher I’ll love,
And he’ll be cool and strong
The publisher I’ll love,
And when he comes ourboox way
We’ll do our best to make him stay.
We’ll make a category for him,
He’ll understand,
And people will publish their stories,
And improve their writing skills,
And if a book is seen by thousands
And becomes very popular,
He’ll publish it.
Well, I did meet two amazing publishers during the last month, one local and one in Europe. And both understood that instead of rejecting practically all the manuscripts they receive, that they can open up a ‘writers’ school’ on our platform and ask authors to upload their stories for the public to see and appraise. Books that are seen by thousands of eyes, or are highly praised might then be published in paper format.
Will this happen soon? I hope so. It is the best way of combining traditional publishing with the advantages of Ourboox and e-books in general. Stay tuned. This is a dream that will come true this year.
