My journey started with signing up at the Writer’s Digest site for information. This writing magazine is a must for most authors. Then I began receiving offers for free training courses which I needed, and I joined their email lists. These wonderful teachers all had a program to sell, and I bought. They knew others with teaching programs that I couldn’t afford not to get, and I spent more money. Then came those selling software for writers, the software to keep up your website and make it easier to run inventors, and the now growing into dozens of those who have sold millions of their books and have author training and promotion websites that one must join if you want to sell millions of your books. For a price, of course.
Whoa! Information overload! Too much money spent and too much time used in reading how to write, how to advertise on Amazon, and how to get my book out there. And no time for writing or implementing all that I have learned.
What am I going to do? Unsubscribe, unsubscribe, unsubscribe. No, not from the few whom I trust and who seem to always have what I need, but from all those vendors who are out to get my money and will probably be gone tomorrow.
What else am I going to do? I’m going to write, to get my work in progress published, and to write some more. That’s all I want to do. Donna Wittlif
