From: Nathan M. R.
Sent on: Wednesday, December 16, 2009 8:02 PM
1. How was my first year as a self-published author?

2. Was I excited just to be able to call yourself a published author?

3. Was the goal I set for myself, just at little bit higher that just laying stake to the claim of being an author?

4. How many books did I sell from my first print (250/500/1000)?

5. Do I still have books in my office/closet/attic/garage?

6. Was my second year as an author better than my first?

7. Are sales of my book increasing or decreasing?

8. Am I developing a balanced client list of book clubs, writers groups, conferences, schools, colleges/universities and libraries?

9. Have I achieved at least two interviews in each of these categories; newspaper, magazine, blogg radio, am/fm radio, television.

10. How many events are currently on my calendar for 2010?


If these ten questions have reminded you about the things you were not able to achieve in your first or second year of being a published author, then make a commitment to re-think your marketing strategy and achieve the goals you originally set for yourself.
