When Ronovan initially started Lit World Interviews, his idea was that it would be a place where authors could promote themselves as well as their work. It’s also a place where authors come to seek help and advice from others. Of course there’s the book reviews as well.
I don’t know about you, but I often find that my pride gets in the way when I want to ask for some help. That’s where blogs like this can really help because I don’t feel as afraid to ask for advice especially as many of the readers here are published authors. I am sure that all of them will have been in a similar situation to where I find myself today.
As yet I have never published a book. However, I now find myself at the beginning of a road whose signpost says ‘Published Authors.’ The road ahead not only looks very scary but very uninviting as well. I’ve been told it’s full of pitfalls and that if I do get to the end of it, then not to expect to find the roads paved with gold. We all fear going into the unknown and many of us will turn away and never go down that road especially if we don’t ask for advice.
The question I want to ask may be one that some readers here today will probably want to ask and I am sure is one that most published authors would have asked at some stage. I’m sure it will generate lots of different answers and where better to store all those answers than here on Lit World Interviews. So here’s that question I want to ask you all.
What is the one piece of advice you would give to anyone who is at the beginning of that road, looking up at that sign-post and thinking about publishing a book?
