Many famous authors and novelists, even some of them non fiction, all started this dreadful journey. This journey is definitely not for the faint of heart and it take a lot of dedication to eventually reach the top of anything. I feel that first time authors are not quite ready to go toe to toe with this and especially people who are only authors for the money. I believe that if money is your only goal, you will really be disappointed.
First of all, not a lot of people have the drive to write for nothing and at first this is what will happen, a person will write for nothing and after a while, without any book contracts or even online sales, people eventually give up. I have seen people with amazing talent and they just cannot complete their work make reap the rewards, they really want.
During the writing of my first short story and subsequent second follow up novel, I have really learned what hard work is. With my second novel almost ready to be released, I have found time to be very valuable and the early morning wake ups and hard work, are really beginning to pay off. As I write this post it is early in the morning hours and I have already spent more than one hour on my novel.
My advice to young aspiring authors will be to make sure you are really ready for the hard work before you set yourself up for disappointment.
For all who enjoy thriller short stories, be sure to check out my novel on Amazon. It is only 99c and for all who are willing to help read and check out the second novel, I would like to ask to sign up, as I will be giving away the book for free before release day
