You have written the words the end and now you’re ready to take the book world by storm. It’s a great dream but it’s doubtful that anyone outside of your immediate family members or best friend is waiting with bated breath for your new book. What makes yours so special? The world’s filled with books and authors.
So what do you do now? You could kick, scream, cry and even pout but don’t expect anyone to give a damn that millions aren’t waiting in line for your book’s release.
Slide your big girl panties on and put all of that pent up energy into promoting your book. As an indie author, you will have to be your biggest fan. It also means whether you succeed or fail falls squarely onto your own shoulders.
Even though there wasn’t a parade in your honor on the first day you book went up for sale, don’t give up. Read, meet other authors and exchange ideas. In other words, do you homework. Last but not least, don’t give up just because becoming a successful author isn’t easy. Nothing worth having ever is.
