Why in the world would anyone write a book anymore? In the words of a wise woman, "What are they nuts!"
I have been talking with the new author friends and I find the same story from all. We all are passionate about our book(s) and want the world to love our story as much as we do. We have dove into the rapid waters of indie publishing and are eagerly grabbing onto new ideas to market ourselves.
But many ask what is the answer? What is the secret to success? What do we need to do to spread the word. A very wise man recently told me that there is no easy answer. There is dedication to our craft and patience.
So until the magic answer appears, we carry on:
We delete and retype
We give up
We cry "I am brillant!"
We giveaway our words
We war (the cover variety)
We band together (Awethors & Indie Books Be Seen)
And most importantly,we just WRITE. Never forget the reason why we put our words to paper.....the story.
