How Do I Define Success?

I believe that most of us that write and publish books are after two main things:

1. Some amount of financial return for the hard work we put into creating and publishing our books; and,

2. Critical acclaim for ourselves and for our books, from our peers, co-workers, readers, family, etc.

This graphic shows you some of the most common mistakes, missteps, and errors that can slow you down from achieving these two goals.

But with hard work and research, some honest assessment of your own writing and book, and forcing yourself to make some hard decisions about your book, you can fix any of these problems.

And by doing so, you will be well on your way to creating a successful book that can help you achieve your personal and financial goals.
