IS MY BOOK READY TO BE PUBLISHED? No. Nobody's book is ever ready to be published. Every book could always be improved. But the problem with self-publishing is the lack of a professional editor who can help you rewrite your book until you're both heartily sick of it and you agree to unleash it on the world, consoled by the knowledge that at least it's not quite as dreadful as it was at first.
Funny article. Thank heavens I wasn't drinking coffee while reading; I would have choked laughing. :-)
