A Writer's Journal
good advice indeed. Charles, if you find a good book on selling please let me know what it's called; selling's also one of my greatest weaknesses.
checking it out asap...
Great bit, baby. :)
That was a... GEM of an article. Yes, I *do* in face need more coffee... My apologies.
Interesting. I'm not good at selling anything. Never was. But in literature and art, it becomes a necessity. Of course, the down side of this is that those who are read, or listened to, or watched are most likely those who have an ear tuned to business--not just an audience, but a preaudience: gatekeepers who are far more capricious and narrow than an actual audience.
You had some good advice as a "guest editor"
Paul, thanks.Benjibopper, I'm amazed at people who can sell anything.Laughingwolf, thanks.Lana, you sweet.Steve Malley, I might need a cup myself.X-Dell, I see that all the time. I think that's kind of the way James Patterson has made himself such an institution.Sage, thanks, I appreciate that.
Most cool on Novel Spaces today, Charles. It is a GEM.
Cool jewel, Charles. My girlfriend wrote a child's book and was unable to sell it well herself. I stepped in and helped her pimp it. I could sell an eskimo a popsickle on a cold day, if it's a product I believe in!
Great article - well done!
ivan, thanks. I appreciate you checking it out.jodi, I couldn't sell an Eskimo a heater myself.Miladysa, thanks, and thanks for commenting. I appreciate that.
I've been thinking a lot about my own shifting goals lately. Your post helped me wrap my brain around it. Thank you :)
Great advice, Charles - gems indeed. Something one should reread often enough...
L. A., glad you got something out of it.Vesper, thanks. Glad you enjoyed.
