TOP 10 REASONS WHY IT’S GREAT TO PUBLISH YOUR FIRST BOOK.
1) With just one book published you’ll be an overnight success and an instant millionaire; sometimes sooner. Be prepared to buy a new front door as agents will be knocking on it constantly in an attempt to persuade you to allow them to represent you.
2) All the newborn babies for the next 10 years will be named after you.
3) Girls/Guys will simply throw themselves at you; they just won’t have an option not to as you’re sooooo magnetic and insightful.
4) You will be invited to be a guest on ‘Oprah’ or the ‘Late Late Show’ and they will start a bidding war to see just what show you will grace your presence with.
5) Your town/city will have an annual celebration in your honour.
6) You’ll never be able to pay for another meal for as long as you live.
7) Everyone you know will have instant respect for you. They will rightly assume that to have written such a masterpiece that you are a genius.
8) The local airport/shopping centre/hospital will change their name to yours
9) Bentley will insist that you take at least two of their cars to drive for your paparazzi photographs.
10) When it’s made into a film and you’re at the Oscars, the winner of best actor will dedicate their ‘Oscar’ to you as they owe you everything.
Okay, so it’s made up, but that’s what I does:-)
