When the first Bad Santa came out what really made it

work so successfully was the unalloyed cynicism of the entire film. There was nothing too awful, nothing too gross, no sentiment too pure to be twisted and turned into something horrible that the characters in the movie wouldn't involve themselves in. That was what made the film so wonderful, a movie which spoke to cold, hard cynicism that we don't speak about but that is present in what a lot of Christmas is actually about these days, parting people from their money, telling us that if only we spend all that we have and then some more then we too can have this magical Christmas 'spirit' that we all so desperately want.

Not so much nowadays however where writers can get their own works into print much easier themselves and self-publishing isn't just the preserve of those who want to boast ad nauseam that they have written a book. With e-publishing making things even easier the whole book industry has seen a revolution in the types of books that are on offer to the public. Some, although they are very much the exception, go on to achieve world wide success.

You only have to look at the '50 Shades' trilogy of books which started as self publishing online to realise that self belief can get you anywhere if you are
