It was an honor and a privilege to be asked to do it, and I’m happy to share. Also, this goes down as one of my top all-time social media stories – and people say that Twitter is a waste of time! ha! Oh, and don’t worry, everyone’s behind, right? I’m so far behind I can’t stand it. Sometimes the only thing you can do is start where you are.

I have talked to several authors who have done just that. And I just took a three session course on speaking and presenting – how to use a microphone, tips and tricks. It was given by a local musician and it was great. I know how hard it is, believe me. But the days are gone when we can all scribble away in a garret and expect to achieve any success.

I wish I could give you a formula or something, but everyone’s situation is different. The truth is that you may have to give up other things to make your dreams come true. And you most definitely cannot make everyone happy all the time. You have to do what’s right for you. A simple post about how you spend your time may help. Molly has done that with her house project. She isn’t apologizing, but it lets people know that hey, we are all human. Share your goals, share your progress, and quality people will cheer for you. BTW as a writer, there is about a 100% chance that you are going to hurt someone’s feelings, some time. Don’t let that control your actions.

Comment on How To Make An Author Video by Kristen Steele http://www.molly-greene.com/how-to-make-an-author-video/#comment-82926 Tue, 31 Mar 2015 14:53:04 +0000 http://www.molly-greene.com/?p=8793#comment-82926 What’s great about video is that not everybody is doing it. It’s a way to stand out and create your “author brand”. It also showcases your personality, which might not come across as easily in your writing.

I’d just like to add one thing. If you’re at all nervous about making a book launch speak/reading your work aloud/giving author talks then join a Speakers’ Club (UK) or Toastmasters’ Culb (UK/US). They will allow you to speak & build confidence in a supportive environment – so that eventually you might enjoy giving talks about your books!

That is a lot of great advice. Need to bookmark this for future use. I do have a question Linda. I’ve found there just aren’t enough hours in the day, some days, thus something always seems to fall to the wayside. Is there an area that you’d advise to spend less time on so you can focus your efforts on writing and/or promoting? Usually where I fall short is in reading other’s blog posts. When that happens some bloggers feel slighted, which usually translates to them not commenting on my posts or snarky remarks when I comment on theirs, like “Nice of you to drop by,” when I’ve been reading their blog for years. I realize I can’t make everyone happy all the time, but I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings. Some days I need to concentrate on my goals. And when I reach the next level of my writing journey my time will be even more limited. How do you juggle everything and what do you spend less time on to focus your efforts elsewhere?
