Robert Redford’s character speaks those words in the last line of “The Candidate,” about a long-shot politician who sells his integrity and betrays his ideals to win a U.S. Senate race.
At this point, you’re wondering: “Gee, what the heck did you DO in order to get this book published?”
Nothing devious, I promise. I just like the question and want use it in this context. Okay, you’ve written, edited and published the book. What do I do now? How much time do I spend promoting? At what point do I jump back into writing the next book?
I don’t really have answers right now, just those questions. I’ve never done this before. Tuesday was certainly a good start — 15 books sold — but I obviously want to sell more. What author doesn’t?
Now it becomes a balancing act — part promotion, part blogging and part writing. If you think that balance is starting to get out of whack around here, just speak up.
