One book at a time

You would think that the sale of self-published books is a simple matter….write it, edit it, put it out there. Hardly. Like everything else, the books sell one at a time. When I see another great review of the book on Amazon, or another sale of a paperback or digital copy of the book, it thrills me. I feel a relationship with the buyer and reader and hope that they know that. I’m hoping they enjoy every bit of it. And I cherish each one of them, believe it or not.

Book writing is not a sales exercise. It’s a creative endeavor that absorbs every last bit of attention and energy the author can pour into it. The process is hugely rewarding, whether or not the book is ever published. As with releasing any newly created “baby” out there into the world, naked, there is hesitation and fear. Mostly there is hope. But the author really does not know until readers actually buy a copy and dive in, and then say they enjoyed it.

So to every single reader, and blogger who directs readers to my books, thank you very much!
