Even Best Selling Authors Have Down Days

Last Saturday I attended an event, one that I attend every year. Usually I do every well at this event but this year not so much. The biggest thing was we had no traffic. I don’t know why. It was a shame because, there were many wonderful authors there who had great books. The event was well advertised the weather was perfect but the people just stayed away. I handed out cards to those few who did show up and talked to several who had a desire to write. But the sales were – well – let’s just say less than steller.

However, on the flip side of that coin, when I got home Saturday night and checked my sales on Amazon Kindle, they were booming – the reason I can only surmise that because I made it a point to let people know that all my books were there, they decided to go home and order them. Yesterday I even received a book sale through my online bookstore at
Remember as indie authors we all will have down days. But that only serves to make the good days even better. We hold our head up, pack our toys up and head out for the next event. We never fail, failure is not trying at all.

My books are still best sellers, and I still enjoy the voices in my head telling me what to do. I don’t look back I only look forward to the next event and the lovely folks I will meet there.
