However, lack of marketing skills, the weakest link in my writing chain, have regularly rained on my promotional parades. In the past, absence of stunning covers has diminished the face value of my books. I don’t want to be “a jack of all literary trades and master of none.” I love writing—that’s my “genius” (along with editing). But I’ve quit dabbling in areas where I don’t excel and yielded to the “genius” of others who bring to the table skills I lack. Now I can look beyond the frustrating elements of book creation and love the whole process—because I don’t expect myself to do the whole process. I have a team. I love it all.
How does your book travel from original concept to readers’ hands? Do you do everything yourself? What’s your weakest link? What’s your “genius”? Do you love it all?
