Epic Fantasy, Writing Advice

What’s the biggest mistake a writer can make?


I’ll tell you right now. It’s writing one book and wasting your entire day trying to promote it.

But you’re probably asking shouldn’t I market my book? Well of course. Problem is that many new writers write one book and call it a day. They put all their eggs in one basket and pray for a miracle. That sales will come knocking on their door.

Well the odds of you hitting it big with one book is astronomically low, if not nearly impossible. Sure, it happens, but waiting for that kinda luck is  like trying to hit the lottery.

The best way to get discovered in today’s crowded  literary market is to get as many books out there as possible. I’m not saying write a bunch of garbage, slap a cover on it and spit it out. More like try and get at least two well-written, edited books out every year.

Because pining all your hopes on one book is counterproductive. The best way  to stay active is, yes, promote that one book, but at the same time, getting back to writing and putting out and 2nd, 3rd and 4th book.
