Being an relatively unknown author has it advantages.

Yes, I know that’s an odd subject line. But please hear me out.

When we look at daily headlines of people who live their lives in the spotlight. You don’t envy them. At least I don’t.  Every little teeny-tiny detail of the celebrities lives’ are being recorded and monitored. There’s continual drama surrounding their lives. Millions of others are counting on you to live the life they will never obtain. They live their lives thru you.

There’s a big uproar for the least thing said or done rather intentionally or non intentionally. It doesn’t matter. It’s enough to make one cling.

But with a relatively unknown author who is making  a name for themselves with those who like their brand no one seems to care about your errors. You are free to move about and create without the worry of the mirco-scrutiny of your life and work. We relatively unknown authors don’t have to worry that every sentence will be blown out of the content of its true meaning.

We get to go places and no one knows it’s you. 🙂 And sometimes when someone who have attended one of your book signings realize it’s you, they may invite you to a lunch. But no one is crowding around you making you feel uncomfortable. I’m not saying relatively unknown authors couldn’t thrive for celebrity status because you should but, you need to be aware there’s a price.

Once the public learns ‘it’s you‘ no one does anything odd or unusual around you anymore in fear it will end up in one of your books. Before then, you saw more weird stuff than you could write about. LOL!

We relatively unknown authors may not have the money of celebrities but what we do have is freedom and peace of mind and that’s priceless.

We all are in danger of losing our freedom and peace of mind with every book we publish,  so I guess we best to enjoy it while it last. 🙂

A. White, an award winning former librarian, who is also a long time member of Romantic Time and Publisher's Weekly. A. White has been writing for over fifteen years. She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and later at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

  1. I don’t know about other relatively unknown authors but I am enjoying my status. The freedom to move about and do things with no one snapping a picture of me placing it on the internet for the world to see. Like days, I have to do normal people things like change the oil, take out the trash, go shopping. There’s no one with a camera in my face and I like that privacy. But I know I may lost it someday and wonders how I will accept and deal with the new restricted freedom?
