THE SNOWBALL EFFECT
There is a snowball effect that authors write about.
It is an anticipated event for an author.
A year after your book is published,
all your hard work and determination begins to pay off.
You write your first book.
Then you hope and pray that someone will buy it.
If you’re self-published–like me–you have to think about advertising.
You find yourself blogging and posting on Facebook, Twitter, and Google.
The sales trickle in very slowly.
You make your contacts.
You become friends with fellow authors and share your book with them.
You post about their books on your sites and they reciprocate.
You begin to enjoy writing your posts on your blog.
You start to wonder why you haven’t done this before.
You blog everyday.
You join more sites and find more friends.
You do favors and favors are received in return.
The pace picks up.
