I can’t tell you what my book is about, which will happen if I do what you ask. I will never give away all the trade secrets that I have learned after years and years of reading what other children’s authors are writing and keeping an eye on what is selling. I hate slaving away for pennies a word day after day after day only to see these authors who would be nothing without me make thousands and thousands.
Then there is the possibility that you may steal from me, and put my book up on Amazon before I can, which will cause me NOT to earn the money I so deserve. I don’t want to ruin the one chance that I have to get my book out into the hands of readers. There are so very few words within kid’s books that just revealing a few could give the whole story away.
Am I paranoid? Maybe, but I have witnessed a couple of authors fight over copyrights, and the right one lose. Right one being the author that actually wrote the book. So, I am keeping this secret, because the story is something that will be loved by kids, forever.
