It certainly seems like it’s true when you learn there are between 600,000 and 1,000,000 books published each year in the U.S. alone.
But not everybody is writing a book for public consumption. Some want to write their family story, have a handful of copies printed and give them for Christmas gifts. Some write to establish themselves as an expert in their field and hand out books at conferences, or to clients.
Of course, there are those of us hoping to write a best seller too.
