We interviewed Else Byskov for the May Group author interview and it was an absolute pleasure to speak to her about various topics within spirituality and the Martinus theory. It was mind-blowing. Do catch up with her recent interview here.

There are four things involved with producing your masterpiece. You need to write, edit, research and market it. I’m including plot development within research. If you’re reading this, there’s a very good chance you have the research and writing under control, the editing more or less under control and the marketing … well maybe not so much. You realize it has to be done but you also realize it might be more pleasurable to poke yourself in the eye with a sharp stick. The real question you need to ask is how much are you prepared to give of yourself in order to obtain commercial success.

I must agree that the internet has now paved a way for readers to pick up materials from new authors. I think the real challenge for any author would be how he or she finds the perfect tribe of readers in this noisy online space. And the decline in the sales of e-book is probably a good sign that people are still preferring hardcopies.

We’re a video enthusiast and our mission is to make you feel comfortable getting uncomfortable. And that means we’re encouraging you to embrace your fears to face the camera.
We came up with this fun-filled idea to splice-up short videos of authors answering questions briefly and posting it up on YouTube every week.
Author Video Splice Up Challenge Titles for August and September are as displayed in the images above. I’ll be joining in the fun too! ⠀
Record yourself answering this question within 10 seconds and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and website by the due date.⠀
Taking submissions from 12 authors only for each title. You can submit videos for every bi-weekly challenge, if you like.

Today, I’d like to talk about family time. It’s so important in today’s busy world. When did we become such a busy society? We’re always doing instead of taking moments to enjoy each other and our family members. My kids are growing up way too fast. It’s driving me crazy how fast they’re growing up. I’m trying to slow it down, but I can’t. It’s like a runaway freight train. So, I try to plan family nights and we try to eat our evening meals together. We also try to have one evening of family time where we watch a movie together or play cards.

Well said! I always think that authors associate book signings with the amount of sales they make, but in the actual reality, it is really a drip marketing, where people get to know you and the more you show up on the media, the more they remember you and the tendency to buy your book later would be higher.
It’s time for another edition of “Lessons from a Book Signing.” If you have been following, I am coming off two book signings one week apart, and I always write something about what I learned from my signings. I am a believer that everything must teach me something. Everything I do or am a part of must serve a purpose; every relationship and every experience must have value.

You wouldn’t believe the number of times I was asked at both signings (especially at the mall) if I was on IG. This question told me that if you’re a writer, Instagram is one platform you want to be on right now (especially if you’re a black writer, a lot of black readers on the gram). What I loved about both signings is that I gained something even if people didn’t buy a book. Those who didn’t…
