All writers have moments of self-doubt. Whether you’re a first time author or a published author expected to produce a manuscript of the same standard as before. Follow these guidelines to raise your spirits and squelch that fear whenever it raises its ugly head.
1. Write a glowing book review. Study other book reviews of your favourite romance authors, look on Amazon.com for the best reviews or on romance review websites. Mimic their style and write your ideal book review.
2. Design and write the copy for a full-page advert for your book. Use the RT or USA Today as a guide. Read how to create the perfect cover design here. Attention-grabbing ads are also an art, so for some design tips, read my blog post, Attention-grabbing Ads that Convert.
3. Write the front copy for your book and the back blurb. Again, study other published romance novels on amazon.com for inspiration and to see how much copy is needed. Once you’ve done these three things, print them all out in full colour and stick them above your computer. Next time you feel even a smidgeon o f self-doubt, look up and be inspired!
