Authors are a hard working bunch. It starts with the dream of writing a book. Then come the countless hours alone with your notepad or keyboard, getting the story onto the page and out of their heads.
Days turn into weeks that turn into months as words fill pages that are edited, rewritten, re-edited and proofread. But the dream continues and the author keeps working at the goal. Write the Book.
Social Media Networks are built and connections are made. A beautiful website is built. Everything is set up on Amazon. The author is excited to announce their book to the world.
And then nothing happens. A few sales in the beginning with the rush of the PR work that may or may not have been done. Weeks go by without a sale. What's an author to do?
Get out and start hitting the pavement with their book. At conventions of any kind that might offer a new audience for the book, you'll see the dedicated author with a booth and piles of their book, or books, just waiting for someone to take them home. The author hopes it's you that takes the book - so they're not packing them up and hauling them home to the six other boxes stacked in the garage.
