Books are our best friends. For us bibliophiles, reading is nothing short of an addiction. Books take us on delightful journeys spanning different timelines and places. From the very comfort of our homes, we can travel the world and meet new people, all with the help of our beloved treatises. So, finding the book of our choice is indeed a cathartic experience.
In the modern world, technology has made it feasible for a plethora of books to be published every other day. It is quite difficult to imagine that it was only a few centuries ago that authors had a hard time even putting pen to paper, let alone publishing their books. It is true that the invention of the Guttenberg Printing Press in the 1440s revolutionized printing. However, even with the ease of it, authors had to deal with mortal fear before shaping their ideas into words. Imagine a world, where a religious institution or monarchy could deem your work treasonous or heretical and put you to death. In such a scenario, your life’s work would be burned as well. You would be scared and skeptical too. However, this did not stop our fearless writers. They trudged on and found a way to voice out their ideas in their books. The way forward was paved by them for all future authors. They made sure that knowledge reaches everyone who is willing. It was because of their immense sacrifices that we are able to get our hands on the myriad tomes available today.
Time passed on and people evolved. Strides were made in the publishing world. Things took a beautiful turn with the emergence of e-books. Gone are the days when authors have to eagerly wait for traditional publishing houses to give their books a shot. A number of talented authors have taken it upon themselves to self-publish their books so that their stories can reach the masses.
However, there is always a flip side to every amazing situation. With the emergence of self-publishing, thousands of books hit the racks every day. It is quite possible for a worthy book to be lost in the throng of millions. This would be an astounding loss for both the author and the readers. People would miss out on a great story. Conversely, for authors, all the hard work that they did to make their story read-worthy would go in vain if their books do not reach the targeted readers.
A book is an author’s baby. They dedicate their heart and soul to it. Penning requires a lot of effort, imagination, grit, and determination. Hence, it would indeed be a shame for a book to be lost in a collection of many.
So, what should we do to avoid such a travesty? The Chrysalis BREW Project is here to provide you with an answer. It does its best to ensure that every book is given its due and brought to the attention of readers.
