Building an author brand is a long-term commitment
Good advice from Richard Ridley (c/o Create Space) again!!
“Speaking of patience, building an author brand is a long-term commitment. This isn’t a get rich scheme. It’s not even a one book and done scheme. Building an author brand takes time and a catalogue of books in order to be robust enough to pull in sustainable sales over time. Relax and enjoy the ride.”
“Never send an unsolicited manuscript to someone and ask them to read your book. Strike up a conversation with them, create a relationship with them first, and then ask for their feedback. This tactic has worked on me every time.”
