Light Bulb Moments

by Kath Middleton
Originally published by on 12/05/2015

My friend had just published his first novel on Amazon and, naturally, we were emailing about books, the way you do. So he said, “Here, I’ve got one for you, how many proof readers does it take to change a light bulb?'

“Go on then, tell me,' I said. He was a bit of a joker.

“Too!' he emailed.

I had to try to top that one. “Okay then, how many traditional publishers does it take to change a light bulb?' I asked him.

“I don’t know, how many?'


“Why’s that, then?'

“Because traditional publishers are still using candles!'
