I don’t really remember talking about this on TalkingTails, but yes – it is official now! – I am writing a book!
Apart form helping me evolve as an articulator of thoughts, I also get to work with a phenomenal set of people – my publisher, editors, designers .. and a few friends who help me design the concept / cover, etc.
Here’s something my commissioning editor told me when we were casually discussing the business of publishing, editing and all that goes behind making a good book.
“Everybody is looking for the bestseller!”
– She didn’t really intend it to be a ‘quotable quote’ I am sure. But the inherent realism struck me – in so many ways are looking for the bestseller – be it the next big product, the anchor client, the magic formula or the ‘killer’ idea! We are all looking for the bestseller. Aren’t we?
