eBooks – Big predictions – The alleged pending merger between Penguin and Random House –
I am motivated to really understand this literary business, deeper, in 2013. In 2009 when I leaped out on faith, the world of self-publishing was foreign, so now in 2013 I can honestly confirm that I have a love for this artistry and business.
Many of my colleagues are more advanced than I; the dazzling graphics of their book covers are quite impressive, and a number of them have interesting story lines that are truly inspiring. Their brands are equally impressive.
The GD brand…
I heard this word “brand” early on, and it has clicked in my visual mentally. I actually wrote a business model a few months ago, and have a logo designed. I’ll introduce them at some point this year. I’ve learned that timing is everything.
I also have learned that the obligations of day-to-day survival don’t stop when your building a dynasty; if anything it they becomes a bit more challenging to balance. Monthly living expenses must be paid to keep a roof over your head, and to keep gas in that car. This is also where the money to travel comes from… Outta your pocket.
Ain’t nothing in life free.
The first event slated for 2013 is the release of, “Daddy.” The literary magicians at Lulu performed the eBook magic with my first 5, but this time I’m on my own. (Smile)
My work is available globally, but I’m still quite invisible as an author. That’s why I am studying and observing the literary culture, because those that help promo you are far and few. I am blessed with some pretty consistent “far & few.” As a matter of fact, one of them brought that to my attention in the wee hours of the morning. I can’t believe we were on the same page about the topic of support, but you do what you do for people and let Karma handle the rest.
Silent observance of competitive operations helps get us familiar with the climate in this business. You got to really love it to stay in it.
I know I love it, because I’m still at it. ~GD
