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!

Congratulations on your book release. I read about it over at Arlee Bird's blog. Looks like a great combination of both sides of the "industry."

Susan Roebuck said...

Oh Diane, I think I live on the moon - the dark side at that! I'm late for the party. Many congratulations on your new book and it's one I desperately need (I suck at promotion) - off to Amazon. Wishing you many sales!

Congratulations again!

Nancy Thompson said...

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.

Sherry Ellis said...

I think your new book is perfect for writers - and there are many of them here in the blogosphere!

C. Lee McKenzie said...

You have the corner on the blogosphere this week! Congratulations.

Your advice is always amazing, Diane. I'm looking forward to reading the book. Once we stop learning, we stop growing.

Congratulations!

Thank you all!

I worry about the competition at times too, but like you, I know all I can is write the best book I can.

If you did your best, then that's what matters.
