Your First Longterm Supporters When Publishing A Book

This is Part Two to Lessons on Book Covers and The Book Industry Part One.

This is not about former teachers and professors that saw a gift in you and it's not about whatever they did to help you nurture that gift. This is not about the people who encourage you to write that book you've been dreaming about. This isn't about the people who may put a little pressure on you because they don't see the actions you are taking to gather a fan base. All of these people in one way or another want to see you win, but because it's not the route they are taking, they more than likely will only say so much to you. It's all about the very first people who will be cheering for you and never stop. 

My very first supporters were authors. They are still the same authors that are offering encouragement  til this day. Why? Because they know the struggle of getting readers and retaining readers, so they want to send that same energy out to other writers. So your first longterm supporters are going to be other creatives like you. 

Well, not all authors support others. Some offer negativity and they never bother to read what you put out. Beware of them, but accept the good ones that come into your life to stay. 

P.S. Make sure you check out my books. They links are located above and to the side of the page.
