A MCS BLOG 7Do you need tips or advice on improving your author career?

31: Spend a few hours in the bookstore rather than spending a few hours in the mall.

33: Use your unique talents instead focusing on what other authors are doing.

34: Become the best seller of your books rather than telling people you are going to be a bestseller.

35: Write for readers instead of writing for literary agents and publishers.

36: Be a dedicated author, not a desperate author.

37: Always head towards your biggest reward. What’s the best way to reach a million readers?

38: Take a few risks. If everyone on the planet thinks an idea is silly, then use your imagination to make the idea useful. Being an innovative author will turn you into a successful author.
