I believe people would be stunned if they knew what incredible work is being produced by authors almost no one has heard of yet. In the half dozen critique groups I've been in over the last ten years, I've had the pleasure of reading some fantastic work. I admit that there's plenty of bad work out there too, but it's the great stuff I can't forget. I'm critiquing a manuscript with incredible potential at the moment. There's work to do, but this manuscript is eventually going to be spectacular. I can't wait for the publishing industry, and then the world in general, to discover it.
