I’m blogging at Books & Such today. Here’s a preview.
You may have noticed that there are now far more books available to readers than ever before in history. The rise of digital publishing has led to a tenfold increase in the number of books published each year, from about 300,000 to more than 3 million.
In this crowded field, discoverability is the biggest challenge for an author. You must grapple with the question of how your readers will find you.
Therefore, keeping readers once you’ve snagged them is essential. You want readers to finish your book and immediately want more. You don’t want to have to keep wooing them over and over. You want to win them and make permanent fans of them.
Once you lose those fans—disappoint them with a book that’s not up to your usual standard—they may be gone forever.
