Dr. Judith’s Saturday Blog – Be A Doer … Not a Dreamer

                                                              Are You Blinded with Your Expectations?

 Do you think you are going to sell a million copies of your book? The odds are extremely remote. Of the 747 million books sold in 2023, only eight authors sold over one million copies.

Do you think that the media will ring your phone off and fill your email box? Most likely not … unless you aggressively reach out and create creative hooks to lure them in.

Do you think that podcast hosts and producers will seek you out? Most likely not … unless you aggressively reach out and create creative hooks to lure them in.

Lower your expectation meter. Be realistic.

You can be quite successful in publishing and authoring in many ways.
