Episode #19 Quotables

“When I first got into this business of writing, I presumed that my publishing company would be doing any publicity or advertising and they do to some extent. But … now fans are contacting me on a daily basis.”
Don Easton

“I’m approached almost at every book signing I do by somebody who wants to be a writer.”
Don Easton

“I gave [my manuscript] to my wife and she only read the first half-chapter … which was seven pages long. [She] threw it back at me and said, ‘This reads like a police report.'”
Don Easton

“During the time I was taking writing courses and felt that I finally learned to write, I had at least a dozen rejections from publishing companies.”
Don Easton

“You get caught up in it at the time. You suddenly lose track of what a normal family would be like … without sleeping with a gun under your pillow or on your bedside table. If my children had to get up in the night to go to the bathroom, they’d have to call out to me so I’d know it was them so they wouldn’t be shot by mistake or something. It’s not a recommended life for a family.”
Don Easton
