This month's co-hosts are Tamara Narayan, Pat Hatt, Juneta Key, Doreen McGettigan, and ME!
Before I get into the meat of my post, I'd like to remind everyone that the #IWSGPit Twitter pitch party is July 27th. You can check out the IWSG site for more details.
Look, I know it's there's not a secret trick to it. Everyone struggles to get sign ups the same way authors struggle to sell books. And I've heard the advice to offer a giveaway, and while I'm doing that next week, damn, does it feel like bribery.
So maybe it's not the newsletters that got me insecure, it's the fact it feels like to get any traction, you have to bribe people. It feels sleazy. Like my writing isn't good enough, so I have to resort to trickery. And yeah, I know that's not true, but since when do insecurities listen to truth?
July's optional Question: What is one valuable lesson you've learned since you started writing?
PS: Thanks for letting me host again, Alex!
