S.D. Skye's Hell or High Water 365-Day Blogathon Day 115 -- Motivation Monday

Motivation Monday -- Author Spotlight

So, I fell in love with an author this weekend...sort of. She's my new author She-Ro. 

I was watching a 6 hour long seminar on Romance Fiction and this author was a featured panelist. I soaked in every word she said. She's feisty and open and honest and blunt. She could be a heroine in a J.J. McCall novel -- pretty kick ass, blunt, and all about the art of writing and the business of selling books. 

This made me hunt her down in every form I could -- I bought books. I read web interviews, blog interviews, youtube videos, you name it, I tried to hunt it down. 

This video is one that every indie author should watch. Not just because she's a NY Times Bestselling Indie Author but because it's clear she LOVES writing and understands the business. My biggest lesson learned from her this weekend is patience! Patience with the process. Patience in building up your backlist. Get ahead of the game and you have a better chance of staying ahead. 

If this doesn't motivate you, you can't be motivated. Watch and learn.
