It’s Never Too Late to Publish Your Book, Harry Bernstein Did it At 98!

What is keeping you from publishing your book?  Never to LateHarry Bernstein wrote 40 books but destroyed all of them because publishers wouldn’t publish them. Bernstein was 93 when his wife died and started writing to help cope with his grief. He spent three years writing his memoir called “The Invisible Wall.”

He sent the manuscript to many New York publishers, They all turned it down. Then he sent it to Random House in the UK, where it sat in a pile of manuscripts for a year before it was read by a publishing director who recognized it as inspired writing. It was published in 2007 when Mr. Bernstein was 98. He would write three more highly acclaimed books, all were published, up until his death at 101. Bernstein called his 90s, “the most productive years of my life.”

What a waste to have those first 40 books lost forever.  Can you imagine if he was able to self-publish them and keep the majority of the royalties from his book.  There are so many of you out there like Harry Bernstein who have books that the traditional publishing houses reject.  Now is the time to publish your first book.  Use the information on our website or buy our book, A Handyman’s Guide to Self-Publishing Your First Book for Free (or Almost Free).  It’s available online at Amazon and through our website Handyman Publishing.

Keep on writing.
