Its the book you never realised you needed. But you do. If you want to stay safe (and sane) between the twists and turns and death throes of the old publishing monster and the anarchic new killing fields of epublishing, this book will help in that regard. Its equal parts passion, humour, angst & a kind of bewildered, contemplative awe.There are writing manuals... and there are writing manuals. Endless Joke casts a somewhat ironic and satirical eye over the current state of publishing, very much from one independent writers perspective, but certainly far from a partisan one. It pokes affectionate fun while genuinely wrestling with some of the complications produced in the wake of traditional publishings seismic changes. But dont be fooled: it somehow manages to be both punk-rock irreverent and devout as a choirboy—while often funny, and at other times filled with the kind of awe that a lifelong love of writing will generate, you will learn much from this book. About lists. About movies. About how to begin a story and how to end one. And ultimately, about how to stay in love with writing amid the flood of new authors marketing their books, upon the new battlegrounds created by the e-publishing revolution. You will laugh. Maybe even cry. And you will enjoy every moment. Except for maybe a couple low points about halfway through.
