For all my author friends out there, I just finished a book that I highly recommend. My review is below:
Like Have a Coach in the Ring With You With a Squeeze Bottle of Water
I listened to the audiobook version of this book with the always delightful Simon Whistler. This book is a must-read for anyone who is serious about writing as a business. It’s straightforward, honest advice without being overwhelming, which is no easy feat. I love the authors’ attitude of – “this is what works for us. It may not work for you.” I read and listen to all kinds of self-publishing gurus, and if it’s one thing I can’t stand it’s experts who claim their way is the only path to success. One-size-fits-all advice never works because everybody has different goals. I also love the way the authors refuse to tolerate whiners who complain that the writing business is impossible, and I love the way they are not afraid to admit when they’ve totally screwed up from time to time. I also love the idea of being a Smarter Artist and not a starving one.
