What To Do After You've Published Your First Book
So, you've uploaded your book and you're waiting for it to go into distribution. What should you do now? Why, sit back and wait for the millions to roll in, of course!
No, this is not the answer. You need to get cracking on your next book right away. Here are some important reasons why:
If you write all the time you never allow writer's block to get a hold of you.
The more you publish, the more you build up your back catalogue. If some reads a book which you have written and they like it they might be inclined to read whatever else you have written. They might be disappointed if you only have one book out.
You might attract some fans who will buy several of your books. Readers can choose to receive an alert from Amazon whenever you put out a new book. Each author is an acquired taste. Once a reader has a taste for what you write they can be incredibly loyal.
I would suggest working on several projects at the same time. Not only does that stimulate you as a writer, but if something is just not gelling with one particular project at a particular point in time you can move on to another one, and come back to the first one later.
