The Hard Truths

Female mannequin infront of clothes storeHard truth #1: To sell your fiction, you must ‘sell’ yourself.

I hate that.

Yesterday, I spent countless, self-despising hours marketing the ‘Chloe Stowe’ name (www.chloestowe.net was the result).

Why did I put my hermit-self through such torture?

To sell a Cozy Mystery that’s not even written yet and hawk a bunch of Romances that have already been sold once.

Hard truth #2: The publishing world is nuts. Be prepared to hawk your sanity right alongside your book.

Until tomorrow…

Chloe
