Recently I read a thread on a message board where authors were sharing some of their frustrations on their book sales and being able to meet their publisher’s expectations.
What do you think helps an author find success besides writing a really great book? Is it their amazing blog? Book tours? Awards? Marketing?
And what would success look like to you as a writer? Would it be publishing a book? Publishing multiple books? Movie deals?
I’ve actually thought a lot about this. I suppose for me it’s to know that I have an impact on my readers. That somehow I can bring the joy of reading and discovery while somehow touching their lives in a way that I couldn’t as a teacher.
