  1. Reading Lisa’s comment above reminds me exactly how I felt when I launched my book in Nov. And it was just about the time I started reading your survival guide Sue. I let out a big sigh of relief. lol
    Thanks for addressing so much of what goes thru our heads. I had a lot of the fears and felt so vulnerable once my baby was out for the world to see. And you’re so right. Those vulnerabilities are because we put our passion out there. Not everyone will like it. But that’s ok. And right now I’m writing something way out of my comfort zone and that gives me plenty of fear. I almost didn’t do it. We shall see what happens. 🙂
    Thanks Sue!

  2. This. Is. Me. In a nutshell. I was in tears moments ago, but thank you! Today is the official release for my book, and I’ve been mired in this thought process through the entire journey. Again, thank you!

    1. Hello, Lisa! And I’m sorry for making you cry, but not really. 🙂 I hope it came with the realization that you’re awesome and you can do ALL OF THIS. Congrats on the release of your book! You are doing a wonderful and brave thing!

  3. Susan, this is a wonderful video and very spot on for where I am in my journey right now. I especially love the part about taking creative action. I, too, have a project that seemed bigger than me, and just last week, I plotted it out. While you were talking, I kept thinking how it isn’t as scary as it was in the beginning. OMG, what if I weakened the idea some how? And then you said that the fear dissipates, and I’m smiling. So thank you! Very helpful. 🙂

  4. I read a number of your Survival Guide posts as they went up on your blog, and they were super helpful and informative! Thanks for creating such a great resource for writers 🙂

How to Emotionally Reach Your Readers, With Jeff Elkins — Self-Publishing Conference Highlight

In this Self-Publishing Conference Highlight, Jeff Elkins discusses how to emotionally reach your readers. It's not enough to get a reader to pick up our books. We also have to reach them emotionally in order to keep them reading past the first chapter and to inspire them to tell their friends about our stories. The good news is, people are communal in nature. We are hard-wired to connect emotionally with one another, and authors can exploit that wiring with our storytelling by keeping our stories dialogue-centric.
