Achieving any level of success as an author has always required patience, perseverance, and the ability to deal with rejection and extended periods of isolation. Today’s reality is that the rules of the publishing game just keep changing and – regardless of how an author chooses to publish – they must now add to the mix marketing, branding and learning to think of their writing as a business.
The perspective of someone on the same journey who has learned insightful lessons can be invaluable.
Why quotations? It’s amazing the impact that a simple string of words can have, and the undeniable truth is that sometimes a certain quotation hits us in such a way that it provides a magical spark, setting in motion thoughts, ideas, and feelings that can lead to life-changing revelations. The challenge is finding that perfect string of words, which is why every day tens of thousands of people search for “inspirational quotations” on every subject under the sun.
The Resilient Writer represents nearly 2 years work gathering hundreds of insightful observations on the writing life and the business of being an author. In addition to motivation and encouragement, it contains a wealth of convenient snippets of advice on the writing craft, marketing and the business of being an author by writers on the front line of publishing. This book isn’t something to be quickly read and set aside, but rather kept close at hand and referred to time and time again.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
For better or worse quotations have become standard filler for social media, not to mention articles and books on every subject under the sun. Because they are so readily available for free people are inclined to discount what it takes to compile a collection of quality / meaningful quotations on a specific topic. It is a long and arduous task for which there is little reward, save for a handful of readers who will embrace the collection because it touches them in some way. That’s really the only reason to endure all that’s involved with producing such a book.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Develop ways to keep yourself motivated because choosing to commit to the writer’s life isn’t like deciding on a job – it’s a lifestyle choice – and as nice as external support is, if you really need those perfect words to keep you motivated and working you’re going to have to find a way to say them to yourself and BELIEVE them.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I’ve always loved quotations and have collected them for as long as I can remember, but for this book I’d have to say that my inspiration was Steve Jobs. Take the entire collection of brilliant Jobs quotations and it reads like a mini MBA course – inspiration and encouragement along with timeless advice on business and entrepreneurship. My goals was to accomplish something like this for writers who daily face an uphill battle against an ever changing publishing landscape, rejection and trying to find time to do all that is now required to achieve some level of success as an author.
