If we were having coffee …

img_5454If we were having coffee, I’d be complaining about how hard it is to sell a debut novel.  I’d tell you how all my author friends say the first book is the hardest but to keep at it.  They always assure me that by the time I publish the third or fourth book I will be on my way.  But then again, they’re not really friends, are they?  They are the competition.    

Still … I’d tell you that I see their point.  I’d finish my coffee and carefully place the empty mug on the table, then stand up and announce, “That’s it, then .. my next novel will officially be my FOURTH novel!”

Sigh.

  1. I think you have finished your first book. Congratulations, it is the first step. I have been trying to write a book for a decade and nothing has come up so far. Every step is a challenge. Now that you have written your first book, you can face the challenges of getting it to market and getting known. You should be proud that you have come so far and I am sure as long as the passion to write exists, you will find the strength and opportunities to promote your craft. Please keep up the good work.
