#34 Authors' Reality Check

I can't take credit for attending the Digital World Conference, but writer Jane Friedman did and shares her notes about "4 Lessons for Author on the Current State of Publishing."
It's a lengthy article, but it's worth reading and taking notes. Here's are recap of the four:

1. An author’s online presence is more critical than ever to long-term marketing strategy.

2. Be reluctant to trust mainstream media headlines when it comes to publishing sales and trends.

3. Learn to find your readers, go where they go, and speak their language.

4. Pricing is the industry’s Achilles heel.

Jane Friedman breaks down each point. 4 Lessons for Authors on the Current State of Publishing.

The key for me is to apply it to my newest release: EVERY WOMAN NEEDS A PRAYING MAN.
