Sample text:

You've written a book or are in the process of writing one. Congratulations! Be proud of that because it’s a great accomplishment, especially if you've put the dedication into writing it as well as you can.

But what do you do once it's written? Have you heard the saying, that writing the book is half the battle while marketing it is the other half? Unfortunately this is the case for most authors, and it took me a long time to accept that reality.

When I first self-published, sales trickled in like a death march for many months while I floundered with bad ideas for selling books. Since I tried a bit of everything and also wrote more titles, sales picked up eventually. At the time of this update (September 2014), my books have sold very well as both ebooks and paperbacks. However, the results were far from instantaneous and not nearly what I expected after finishing my first novel in 2005.

Many of us believe our words are golden, and when we finish writing our books, our certain best-sellers, they're going to fly directly from our hands into the eyes of readers around the globe. Agents and publishers will beat a path to our door to whisk us off our feet with huge advances, offers for sequels and world tour book signings. Movie producers will fight over the rights to make the next Oscar-winning best picture. We may even imagine what we'll wear on the red carpet at Oscar night and how our award speech will go… thanking the little people… the tear-filled pause… etc.

It's a great dream, one that I've been dreaming for years. I haven't given up on the ultimate goals of the dream, but I have altered my timeframe for all of this to happen. It came not by choice but out of necessity.
