This is an awesome article! I particularly love the way Kristen Lamb talks about how readers don’t buy just ONE book ever, therefore we writers are not actually in competition with each other. I also love her shout-out to RWA. Go us!
Tomorrow I leave for NYC to speak at CraftFest then attend Thrillerfest. This conference (for me) is simultaneously exciting and terrifying. I’ve always held a deep love for NY (and still do). This is one of the challenges I’ve faced when it comes to being a social media expert for authors.
My goal is to connect each author with the publishing path that is best for that artist.
In the meantime, I also strive to help NY innovate. Amazon is great, but healthy competition is best for all of us in the end. Monopolies are only good for said owner of the monopoly. As I said in Rise of the Machines–Human Authors in a Digital World, “NY brings balance to The Force.” Any help I can offer to help them raise their game? I’m here.

One of my all-time favorite movies is Heartbreak Ridge
