The Insecure Writer's Support Group and Today's Book Tour Stop

It’s time for another edition of The Insecure Writer’s Support Group, hosted by Ninja Captain, Alex J. Cavanaugh.

Yesterday, my 7th book was released.

After teaching seminars on publishing and promoting for almost six years, I finally got my act together and put them into book form, packed with a ton more information.

Thanks to all who sent out messages, posted about my book, and purchased it yesterday.

It’s unnerving to throw a book on that subject out there, as so many good ones already exist. (Trust me, I’ve read all of them.)

But each one taught me something new. Often many somethings. Because no one person knows everything about this business.

And while there are many books on publishing and even more on marketing, very few books feature both.

In short, I’ve decided not to worry. I created the best book I could, both filled with information and yet easy to follow.

And I did it to help other writers and authors avoid the pitfalls and mistakes.

So read, learn, and follow your dream!

And today’s tour stop is at Stina Lindenblatt’s blog with her review of my book. 

Hopefully I shouldn’t have added THAT to my insecurity list today!

  20. I believe always being willing to learn will make even the most experienced writer even better. You can never know enough. So keep pumping out those books. There's always something else we don't know but should.
