Most authors have strong convictions and beliefs, both about their writings and their views of the world. Many, however, feel powerless to get their message out. As a result, some truly great books will get buried in the avalanche of the millions of books listed for sale — unless authors rise up and advocate for their gems.
Dear writer, you are in control of your fate, despite your feelings expressing otherwise.
You have the power to:
* Apply for book awards
* Seek speaking engagements
* Be active on social media

* Learn how to market your book
* Lobby for news media appearances
* Advertise your book
* Network with targeted groups
* Ask friends for favors
* Be creative, show initiative, and be persistent
Get different results.
You have the power.
