She did an interview on Wisconsin Public Radio. She sold $143.20 worth of books at a Barnes & Noble book signing. She met a writer at the event who wants to hire her to edit his book. And she was invited to present a workshop later this month at a convention for business women.
That’s called momentum. It takes time and requires patience. But most of all, it takes courage to step far outside your comfort zone, something most authors who are introverts are loathe to do.
