” I also think this felling of loss that you described in your last email when an author sees the printed book begins earlier when you have to cut chunks of what you wrote just because the publisher´s reviewer told that the public may not get something. I know it´s their job but every word that you have to toss is like cutting a little piece of yourself. I wasn´t thinking about market when I wrote most of those thinks and, to be honest, I still not thinking about it. I have no idea how many books were sold. I´m not making any money with it since I didn´t pay for anything to get the book published. They need to recover the money they spent with me, it´s only fair. I can relate to what you said about publishing a book feel like finishing a relationship. It happens to me a lot, every time a relationship ends and I´m doing this mental retrospective, I always catch myself trying to find what or how much of me (Mayra) are in that person and why did I fell in love with her.”
