There are agents and publishers and editors and revisions. And if all that goes well, you’ve just earned yourself on a spot on a shelf in a book store. Then you have to worry about whether anyone besides your mom buys the book.

It’s a lot of sweat equity with no guarantees. Plus, go ahead and throw in some lonely, doubting moments at the keyboard along the way.

And, well, it’s no wonder you might want to look into the future. This cootie catcher offers some fortunes for your finished novel.
