Are you tired of struggling, feeling unmotivated, or just plain stuck? Are the words kind there but not there? On the tip of your tongue but unable to tap them.
Are you tired of feeling like crap because you’re not writing as much, or even as well as you know you could and should? Is procrastination killing you a little more each time you don’t actually write anything when you want to?

You’ve been thinking about writing a book for a while now. Maybe you’ve even spent years thinking about it.
Everyone wants to know how to get more attention for their work, but not everyone is willing to do what it takes. The question you have to ask yourself is a simple one, and yet, it’s profound and can change everything. Are you willing to do what it takes?
If yes, continue. If no, then stop reading now.

I recently had the good fortune of interviewing the literary agent, Mark Gottlieb, who has ranked #1 among Literary Agents on Publishers Marketplace. This interview was an eye opener for me. If you’re an author, trust me, you’re going to want to read it.
Most agent interviews are boring, so with that in mind, I did not ask Mark what his favorite color is or why he became an agent or anything that would put you to sleep. This interview is filled with serious questions that directly matter to you, as an author considering self-publishing or traditional publishing.
If you’ve considered self-publishing and wondered how many units you would need to sell in order to interest a traditional publisher, today you’re going to find out where that number starts.
You might not like all of the answers, but I will tell you this, as an author, you need to know them. And there are very few agents on the planet that know the answers as well as Mark does. He’s a straight shooter and not interested in blowing any smoke, so strap in and become informed.
One of the sad realities of our time is that thanks to movies, TV shows and yes, even books, we’ve come to expect success as something that will happen like a lightning bolt.
You work hard and create something incredible and CRACK – BOOM you hit the big time and everyone loves it, buys thousands upon thousands of copies, and you become rich, famous, and an all around badass success.
