Here is a letter I wrote to the NY Times editor:

Letters to the Editor
The New York Times
620 Eighth Avenue
New York, NY 10018
letters@nytimes.com

To the editor:

It was nice to see in the newspaper an article about small businesses. The article (Small Businesses Still Struggle, and That’s Impeding a Recovery, 2/13/13) was objective and informative. As a small business owner it is nice to gain some perspectives about where the economy is headed.

At one point you make the comment big companies are benefiting from being overseas while smaller businesses are “tied to the leaden domestic economy”. That is a fact we have seen since the Clinton administration. The tax laws benefit bigger companies more than smaller ones. There wasn’t enough information in the article about a solution to this problem.

Until the economy is on the right track we will see more and more small businesses close down. The only solution is to give tax breaks and benefits to small business owners. Any kind of incentive to stay in business in our country is good for the economy.

Sincerely,

Jessica Wilson

What Role Should Libraries Have in an Electronic World? | Nathan Bransford, Author.

I have said this before about libraries.  But I like how Nathan Bransford puts it.  That libraries could be going the way of the dinosaurs.

The only issue I have is that if I don’t want to buy a book but I have to read it then I want to borrow it from the library.  I would hate to lose an institution that provides a big service to those of us who just wants to read a book and give it back.

Only time will tell what will happen to the libraries in the world. What are your thoughts on this issue? Do you support your local library? Do you use a library to check out an author’s books before deciding on buying?

There are so many options in this day and age that it can be hard to decide what to do.  We have an array of options just shopping, finding a job, or even going to school.

What I want to know is what is best for a unpublished author, to publish the traditional way with a Publishing company and have the book in paper or to have the book as an ebook?  Where do we find on this world-wide-web the right information about self-publishing?  Because for some reason there is an enormous amount of information to dig through to find your answer.

So I am asking my readers what they think.  Which is the best option:

  1. Ebooks are great because they give the author the oportunity to have more say in the finished product.  It also allows for more profit.  If it does well.
  2. Publishing with a traditional publishing company gives you an expert who knows how to promote your work.

I know in the end I will have to make up my mind about the whole matter.  But it doesn’t hurt to hear from those in the industry what they think.  (:

Osteogenesis Imperfecta- Cushioned In Love

Expressive and Emotional word content... poetic justice... my thoughts are perceptive, occasionally subjective but always dimensional. My career lies in psychology and my mind lies in philosophy. To question and ponder is to reflect. I am both reflective and directive. I never walk with caution as our steps need their footprints. I love this journey we call life.
