Many people view authorship as a journey of solitude. They enjoy the “tucked-awayedness” of putting words on the page–bringing their vision to life.
But the truth is, to sell books, you have to emerge. Like a butterfly birthing from the cocoon, you too must come out of your shell to do the uncomfortable.
There are two main initiatives where I see clients get uncomfy:
- Platform Building and Marketing
- Asking for Blurbs, Endorsements and Forewords
In this week’s episode of Bound + Determined, Gina Moffa, LCSW, sought-after grief therapist and upcoming author of Moving On Doesn’t Mean Letting Go, is kindly deep-diving with me into all the emotions and the reality of asking people for kind words.
It’s not an easy thing for most people–the idea of asking for this type of support, and I don’t think we talk about it enough. Let’s normalize it!
So join us as we hear Gina’s experience about what both pleasantly surprised her, and frankly, what hurt, as she navigated endorsements and blurbs for her upcoming book.
