A Little Inspiration
I have gone from selling half a dozen books in a year to selling 30 books in a week of just one title. It has been a long, painful journey but it wasn't until I got angry that I turned a corner.
I thought to myself '"why aren't I selling books? Everyone else seems to be selling books so why can't I?"
If was at this point that I started to take this whole business seriously. I bought some books about writing and publishing. I bought some books to evaluate other authors' styles. I looked into making better covers than I used to and writing better blurbs. And through it all I just kept writing, forcing myself to write when I didn't want to and forcing myself to have one more go at editing when I thought I had done enough.
There's still a mountain I have to climb but each step takes you closer to the summit.
