If nobody laughs at your dreams, you are probably aiming too low. — Art Jonak
I found this photo originally in my Facebook feed. When I shared it, I made an additional comment I think is worth sharing with all book authors:
If you don’t laugh at your own dreams, at least some of the time, you are also probably aiming too low. Have fun. Dance. Enjoy. Keep aiming higher. — John Kremer
In a later comment, I also wrote this:
Relax. Just do something every day. What needs to happen will happen.
I think too many authors spin their wheels, especially with worry, procrastination, and disillusionment.
Here’s is my recommendation:
Do something every day to market your books, even if only for a few minutes. Don’t give up. Have fun. Dance.
If you don’t have fun, your audience will not have fun. And they won’t buy your book. And they won’t talk about your book. And they won’t join your tribe. And they won’t create the word-of-mouth that sells 80% of all books.
Now leave here. Click off this page. Go do something to market your book.
And smile, laugh, dance, or play while you do it.
