Your Big Vision for 2014

.

Your-Vision

.

Questions You Might Think About at the End of the Year:

What is your vision for you and your books?
What will be your next activity, how will you publish and promote it?
What steps are you taking immediately to implement it?
What is holding you back from going that next step?
What will happen if you would start today – bringing your vision to life?
Does procrastination make anyone happy?

I stopped ten years ago to watch TV – and it saves me at least 10-15 hours every week.
Would it be a big loss for you to miss those dump sit-coms on TV (which consist to 50% of advertising) and instead write blogs and articles in order to improve your career as an author?

.
Success

.

Jonathan Gunson wrote: “Success is based on patience and the willingness to devote decades of your life to building an audience as a writer. Something a lot of new self-publishers don’t (want to) seem to understand. One of the most common questions I get is: “I published a book, but can’t figure out how to get it in front of people.” That’s because it takes time. Time that includes daily attention to promotion  … for years.”
.

“But if you are wanting an income from books, then give it the time it deserves. Every other profession requires an internship, a journeyman level, then eventually a master of expertise. Same with writing/publishing!”
.

Richard Branson, the founder of the Virgin Group, a worldwide brand, …. said in an interview:
“Most of us have barriers that can pull us off track – and in some cases, stop us flat. When your vision is in play, they become mere detours – something that you will figure out, how to quickly redirect and keep on going.”

The mega success that Richard Branson has enjoyed had plenty of hiccups, you can count on it! But Branson had this big picture – now what is YOUR big picture?  May we help you to achieve your goals?

How to Sell 8 Million Books – by Jonathan Gunson

.

Wikipedia Creative Commons

.

Jonathan Gunson has written (again) a great blog post:  “How to Sell 8 Million Books” – in several decades I must add.

The author he is talking about, is best known through his novel Fahrenheit 451. Ray Bradbury’s success didn’t happen immediately.  While he eventually sold more than eight million copies of his novels and short stories, Bradbury actually struggled for years to support his family before making any meaningful progress.

Before he died in 2012, Ray Bradbury recorded the secret of his breakthrough, the moment he stumbled upon the elusive force he needed to power his writing.

See:  http://youtu.be/YlYAhSffEDM  Ray Bradbury on Writing Persistently and read Jonathan Gunson’s blog:  How To Replicate Ray Bradbury’s Success

It’s about building a writing career, one book at a time, not like some people want to tell you, to become a millionaire with your debut novel. It’s about a marathon and not a sprint.

How To Get Free Book PR?

.
Many writers hide behind their computer or typewriter in sheer terror at the thought of ‘marketing’, because their skill set is writing, not selling.

The reality is that all writers need book publicity, but don’t want to become the literary equivalent of a used car salesman.  Nor can they afford to spend money for a professional publicist. The Solution for this dilemma:

Get Reviewed By High-Profile Book Bloggers

Book bloggers are high on the trust list for readers, which means they are among the most influential connections we can make. These bloggers read a large number of books, and have an audience of readers collectively amounting to millions.

Book Bloggers are an incredibly powerful source for promotional help. Author Amanda Hocking is perhaps the most visible recipient of this ‘book blogger effect’ as she describes on her own website….

Jonathan Gunson  wrote a great blog, explaining how book bloggers helped Amanda Hocking to became a millionaire – and how you can become one as well – provided you wrote a great book: 

His advice in a nutshell:
