FOR WHAT IT’S WORTH

 

Cost of free advice = Nada : Cost of good advice = Priceless

[I follow the blog of Seth Godin, author of 12 books translated into 30 languages.  In this post, he says things such as:

“There is no such thing as effective book promotion by a book publisher.”

“If you need the advance to live on, then publishers serve an essential function.”

“The best time to start promoting your book is three years before it comes out.”

“Don’t try to sell your book to everyone.”

“Your cover matters. Way more than you think.”

“Publishing a book is not the same as printing a book.”

“Writing a book is a tremendous experience. It pays off intellectually. It clarifies your thinking. It builds credibility . . . You should write one.”

Enjoy . . .]
