It never ceases to amaze me how certain things and certain people find their way into the newspaper. Is this something else we need to go out and grasp?
It’s tiring when you feel you MUST go out there and do everything yourself! It gets depressing when the most books you sell are the free ones. Everyone wants freebies and I admit I’d prefer the cheat stuff too but… not to compromise another author.
What brought this rant on?
An article in today’s newspaper about a 70-something year old who opened a gymnastics fitness club. All the power to him but he was already in the paper within the last two weeks. Why not give someone else a turn?
I feel, as authors/writers (whatever you call yourself), we tend to get the short end of the stick! People think it’s cool that we do what we do and they wish they could write a book… but at the end of the day, they don’t offer to buy a book either!
Back to square one!
How do we get out there?
How do we get our heads out over the crowd to stick out?
How do we finally get seen?
Sure we could hire a publicist–costs money and plenty of it.
Sure we could… I’m out of ideas already!
Let’s try to make 2016 THE YEAR for us… The Year of, or rather for The Invisible. Let’s try to not only let our stars shine but let it be noticed and given a name!
Let’s not be invisible anymore!
