So many writers and artists I speak with regularly reassess the path they are on with creating, publishing, and sharing their work. They ask a version of “Why bother?” Today, author Jennifer Louden shares two incredibly useful resources with us. The first is to take us through her new book, Why Bother?: Discover the Desire for What’s Next, and the six-step process she guides you through to find your own path. The second is she takes us behind the scenes of her book launch, and shares how she got more than 170 five-star reviews on Amazon in less than a week. She digs into what else she is doing to promote the book, discusses the biggest mistakes authors make in their book launch, and the things that surprise her most about marketing her book.
