Perhaps love, as you wrote and they sing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mGIfE9uhxSE - will port you out of the sick mood. As to my "stopping", old love doesn't rust, explains.

Penelope's curator insight, September 17, 2013 12:02 PM

 

Aspiring and even self-published authors are inundated with so much information coming at us at the speed of light; it sometimes feels as if our heads will explode.

 

Bestselling author, Hugh Howey, gives us some more great advice to chew on, and attempt to cram into our cranial. Some has been rehashed, but we can all use a refresher. Here is a quick summary:

 

 1.   Asking people to buy your book doesn’t work.

 2.   The people who sell your books are your existing readers.

 3.   There is no promotion as strong as writing the next book.

 4.   An undiscovered book remains fresh and new.

 5.   Give your books away. You need to build up a fan base.

 6.   A good agent is your best friend.

 7.   An email list is more powerful than Twitter or Instagram.

 8.   Videos are worth a million words.

 9.   Be yourself.

10.  Authors are not in competition with one another.

 

Remember, BIC (butt in chair). Keep writing, then there will be books to promote.
