Like some celebrities /achievers in their respective field become house hold names during their life time (i.e. the lucky ones), almost every second or third house can boast of an author in near future, because all that one requires is knowing a little English to talk and write. Whether anyone reads their books is a different matter for the writer’s job is done once the book is published by a publisher (again if she/he is lucky) or self published in its physical form or online. But the fact is more and more authors making their debut are increasing day by day if one has to go by what a journalist has written in his column recently.
The sad part of it is when authors are multiplying , book stores are shutting down with equal speed and a day might come when authors of all categories will have to think of a strategy to market their books from their own homes which is akin to working from HOME !
