I’ve been reading.
It’s a mistake, I know, because everyone is different, everyone has their own way of doing things, and success comes for different people in different ways, quite often not replicated by others.
What’s the expression, you had to be there.
I read success stories, I read what these people did to get 1,000 extra Twitter followers in a day, a week, or five minutes, sold thousands of copies of their books in a moth, from absolutely nothing, and/or have the formula for success.
All you have to do is part with, hang on, yesterday it was $495.00, but today only, just for you, it’s $69.95.
Read the fine print, this might not work for you. And, generally, who reads the fine print.
I read about other authors using book promotion services, yes we have 250,000 twitter followers just aching to buy you book.
Read the fine print, it depends on a whole lot of factors whether it sells or not. You could be ‘lucky’. Most authors are not.
What’s the answer?
I think it’s at the bottom of the abyss, where I’m considering jumping in.
If I happen to find the answer, and become ultra successful, I’ll be happy to share it for nothing. It’s not going to affect my sales, not once I’m established.
It’s just taking that first step.
Perhaps I need to believe in myself.
I’m also sure there are 101 ways to taking that first step, and someone out there knows one, or two, and someone else, knows another. It’s just finding those people who do know, and who are willing to share, not for $495, not for $69.95, but because they want to do it to help others.
And maybe, just maybe, all those who gain the benefit their wisdom will buy their books.
Hang on, perhaps that’s number one on the list of 101 ….
