“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated failures. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”
You can be the best writer in the world and never sell a single book - and I also know several bestselling authors that can’t write worth a darn. I don’t know why people buy their books, but they do. If you persistently market your books, you will start selling them. It’s not about how talented you are, it’s not about how wonderful your book is, and it’s not about how smart you are. Sure, all of those things are helpful, but by themselves they won’t sell a thing. You have to be persistent in your marketing.
It can be tempting to feel down about a lack of sales or book reviews, but if you keep at it, you’ll eventually get to where you want to be.
Persistence pays off. Keep working on marketing your book. Whether you’re planning a blog tour or other marketing campaign, or just sticking to social media – keep it up.
