One of the lessons I have learned as a writer, that I have to pass on, is this,
We learn as we go, and one of the biggest and best lessons, is that there are very few universal writers, what that means is this, WHAT YOU WRITE WILL NOT APPEAL TO EVERYONE...
So what writers must do is find the voice that best defines them and stay true to it,
And work to find the READERS who find what you write appealing, satisfying, purchasable and work from there....I absolutely know that we as writers all want to sell to everyone, of course we do, but life and time will teach us that it usually does not work that way....another lesson is to appreciate silence, when someone says nothing about your work, take it that maybe they weren't that into it, and leave it alone...again, everything is not for everyone one, and time spent trying to convince people to get it is time wasted, that could be spent on engaging those who are interested....
When I received the flyer from my favorite library I knew that I was finally focused properly,
I had worked as hard as I knew how to reach those who were interested and I had learned not to lose any sleep over those who were not....God was blessing me in the way that was right for me, and I would be guided, as I had been on how to proceed...I am grateful!
Love and Blessings!
