With a few years of publishing experience under my belt, I’ve come to the conclusion that one hallmark of an immature author is the temptation to try and sell, sell sell all your books to anyone who knows how to read, regardless of their genre preference or whether they even know you. It’s hard work to convince strangers who’ve never heard your name to give your book a chance, but doing so can make you look like that attention-craving six-year-old no one thinks is cute, except her parents.

That’s why I’ve decided to drop that idea completely. I no longer use social media, or even this website, as a platform to sell books.
