So you’re a writer and you walk into B&N/Borders/other BIG CHAIN STORE (you’ll see why in a sec) or even a really well-stocked indie store and you see…books. *Everywhere* there are books. And you’re plugging away on your book, certain that you can get it published (or maybe just hopeful) and you see *all these books*. How do you feel? If you’re overwhelmed, how do you counsel yourself? If you’re excited, how do you pace yourself?
If you’re a reader/reviewer, how do a find *one book*, one special book, in *all those books*?
I’m asking cause I got to thinking while looking through my 1,500+ friends on MySpace, most of whom are writers and I got tingly and overwhelmed looking at all those gorgeous glossy photos, all of those books. How do we stand out? How do we get that book into a reader’s hands?
Wanna hear the good, the bad and the ugly here. What do you think?
