Gathering reviews is just one element of the multi-headed monster that is marketing. I’ve gotten where I (think) I can write books passably well, but marketing myself is a different animal. Some people are just born to shout things from the rooftops, and there are others of us who just wish the rooftop shouters would just keep it down — we don’t want to compete with them and we’ve got writing to do, dammit!
Artists, writers, creatives: This week, when you see extended family, don’t self sabotage. Don’t tell them your secret dream if you know you’ll leave feeling bad. Your stretching scares them. Because it represents change. And time. So protect yourself. And your dreams/plans/ideas
