My series goes live on November 1st and as I study keywords, audiences, categories, and algorithms, I can’t help but think how the publishing world has changed since 2012 when I first started out on this road. There are so many more tools for us authors today than just a few years ago.
For those wondering what it takes to be successful – well – I’m not sure but I think I have the formula figured out below.
Formula for successful publishing: Study everything-everywhere, apply what you can, do the work of 8 people, worry you are not doing enough work and need to hire more of you, rewrite your copy, re-edit and second guess every sentence, and then toss it all in a jar, shake vigorously. Set the jar out in the sun hoping a rainbow hits it and grows into a magical unicorn.
