Life has been good for Jasper and I for ebooks and audios last year and definitely this year. Granted ratings for books go up and down faster than a yo-yo does. I do check other countries that has Amazon affiliates hoping to add another country to the list. Some I have gotten close but I have not broken the top 100 yet apart from the US and the UK.
I am sure people are getting tired of me shouting about this. They might want to get earmuffs. I’m not stopping. Greedy? Yes, perhaps. Motivated? Ah, yeah.
I am going to piggyy back off last week’s blog post where I talked about enjoying the wins both big, small and in between.
I want more. I absolutely want more for my brand and myself. You should want that for your book as well.
It takes a lot of time to write a book and get it in the shape it needs to pitch to be published. Your book deserves it for you to be motivated and greedy when good things happen to it.
Enjoy it but want more. You should want more and more even when the wins slow down to a trickle and in some cases stop completely.
I just had someone read volume three of my Jasper, Amazon parrot series and he said I wrote another winner. That felt so good that this fan of my series is still happy with the books. That is another win.
Don’t sell yourself or your book short. Shout it from the roof tops any time and all time when good things happen. People not in this field might not totally get it but other authors will.
If you don’t celebrate and proclaim from the top of a mountain why will anyone else do that for you? If you can’t appreciate you for the hard work and accolades that come from your time, effort and books what will it take to get excited?
