Many of you often read my how to articles on book writing and book marketing, some of you buy my books and audios that teach different skills in the book game. Others, who are serious and committed, hire me as your savvy book coach. And a few of you share your ahas that help me and my subscribers shine.
Over the last 13 years, I’ve offered you my free newsletters and blog subscriptions. Within those writings, maybe I’ve chastised you for procrastinating, or over thinking your marketing.
Yes, it pays to get book coaching help on these challenges, but right now, I’m in the New Year zone. I want to share my gratitude for you who are overcoming all kinds of challenges to finish your book projects.
Maybe you are ill, or caring for an ill loved one, or trying to raise young children.
I know excuses keep coming to let us off the hook of the big responsibility of doing a book project, especially one we want to make money from. Certainly you’ve heard of “I’m still in school.” Or “I’m getting old” or “I’m working all day and only write at night.” How about, “I’m distracted, codependent, under medicated, and where’s my chocolate?”
I applaud you for finding the courage, time, and dedication to write–in spite of it all. Let me show the way…
