MCS BLOG 3Do you need tips or advice on improving your author career?

101: When you are at author events, make sure you are always standing and looking motivated.

102: Most authors write blogs about what is going on in their life. Instead, authors should write blogs about what is going on in the reader’s life.

103: The reader should believe that your book was personalized to them. This is the definition of terrific storytelling.

104: Research your genre and story ideas to the point that no one in the world knows more about it than you.

105: Enter a writing contest. By winning an award, you give your writing credibility which gives you better opportunities to sell books.

106: Keep in mind that those who never wrote anything in their lives do not understand what it takes to be an author. They can be jealous of your gift and attempt to break you down to their level. Don’t let them.

107: Create a monthly “email drip campaign” where you send out a few paragraphs to benefit everyone on your email list. Make sure at the end of your email is a link to your books. Build your email list by holding a simple contest or drawing every few months.

108: Take accountability for your work. If it is less than brilliant, make it better.

109: Every book you read, every book you write, every book you publish, every book you market transforms you into a skilled author. Keep improving in reading, writing, publishing, and marketing.

110: If you were born to be an author, then you really do not have much of a choice. Never quit. Never give up. Never stop finding a way to succeed.
