Special-Sales Tip of the Day: August 31, 2015

Do you hit the bull’s-eye every time you shoot? If so you are probably standing too close to the target. As comedian Woody Allen puts it, “If you’re not failing every now and then it’s a sign you’re not doing anything innovative.” Everyone has a risk muscle. You keep it in shape by trying new things. If you don’t, it atrophies and may no longer be able to take chances. How can you exercise your risk muscle? One way is to sell your books to non-bookstore buyers.

You Said It

“I woke up at 2:15 am buzzing with all the new ideas I learned. That was just after the first afternoon! A hands-down must for authors determined to make money from their book and for independent publishers wanting to expand their business. Thanks very much!”

     Laura Larson

They Said It
