The Resilient Writer: Insight & Inspiration on the Writing Life & the Business of Being an Author

There Has Never Been a Greater Need for Authors to Master Self-Motivation

Achieving any level of success as an author has always required patience, perseverance, and the ability to deal with rejection and extended periods of isolation. Today’s reality is that the rules of the publishing game just keep changing and – regardless of how an author chooses to publish – they must now add to the mix marketing, branding and learning to think of their writing as a business.

The perspective of someone on the same journey who has learned insightful lessons can be invaluable.

Why quotations? It’s amazing the impact that a simple string of words can have, and the undeniable truth is that sometimes a certain quotation hits us in such a way that it provides a magical spark, setting in motion thoughts, ideas, and feelings that can lead to life-changing revelations. The challenge is finding that perfect string of words, which is why every day tens of thousands of people search for “inspirational quotations” on every subject under the sun.

The Resilient Writer represents nearly 2 years work gathering hundreds of insightful observations on the writing life and the business of being an author. In addition to motivation and encouragement, it contains a wealth of convenient snippets of advice on the writing process, marketing and the business of being an author by writers on the front line of publishing. This book isn’t something to be quickly read and set aside, but rather kept close at hand and referred to time and time again.
