On Selling Books

Russel Blake has an interesting post up about what exactly it takes to publish and market books (see it in full here). I've found a lot of what he says to be true- but nothing more so than the advice to write quickly and make your releases frequent.

Now, that's the hardest part, of course. Getting all the words down on paper as fast as you can. What I need is a brain to page translator. My hands just aren't fast enough.

One thing I don't agree with, though, is going back and rewriting old novels years later. If you start in with that, you'll never stop. Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet, admit you weren't always as skilled as you are now, write more and write new.
