Laurence O’Bryan has made some good points here, even though it might not be what writers want to hear.
It’s worth a read for anyone who wants to get into the book selling business and for those who are struggling – hang in there! I’ve heard it over and over – persistence, persistence, persistence.
I’l also add #8 Try and help a fellow writer at least one time per day – share a tweet, like a blog post, share a facebook post… We have to stick together in this tough business and help each other. That way we all make progress.
