Having spent the last 13 months researching and writing my "book", there wasn't much time available for discussion on Feldgrau, or any other of the research forums, ( or many other forms of socialising either!).
My question perhaps, was more rhetorical, than definitive, in as much as there are so many active, and interactive media where an author can be "published" these days, what constitutes "published". On one hand, a hardback book, on the other perhaps a "Blog" site?
The concept in the light of the present media available is not a simple one. There are many who post on the internet that achieve fame, (or notoriety), without ever putting pen to paper, whilst there are others who write reams of good work, but never seem to use anything but pen and paper. Both are equally writers both have some degree of being "Published".
Which brings me back to my original subject: "Published" Internet, or Hardback, or a degree of both? Physical, or Digital, or both?
Ps The number of my posts is unimportant! What I have to say, and when I say it is! If I have something that I want to say then I will post. If I have nothing to offer then I won't post anything.
