The Biggest Critic


Day 89


“Don't sell yourself short. No one will value you. Set a fair price for you, your book, your services, whatever it is that you have to offer. Most of us set way too low a price. Put it a little higher than you would normally be inclined to do. The worst that can happen is someone will come along and steal it.”
~ John Kremer

There are still occasions when I read a review about my book and think, “Wow, they not only paid for my writing – but they liked it!” I don’t know why, but we’re always our own biggest critics. It’s easy to look at what we do and see all of the mistakes or room for improvement. Other people look at it and see it for what it is (not what it could've been or isn't). We are worth something, and so are our books.

Marketing prompt:


Evaluate the price of your books compared to other books in your niche. Are your books priced competitively, or are they significantly cheaper? You might consider raising the price – or if it’s much higher, you might get more sales if you lower it a bit.
