Author Interview - Pol McShane

I'm back today with an author interview with Pol McShane. Pol is the author of the Genie in Bottle series. Now, just hearing that title piques my curiosity. Does it not intrigue you just the same? I was excited to find out more about the books and about the author himself. It is great to have him here on my blog!

If you were in an elevator with your favorite writer and had to tell about yourself in 60 seconds, what would you say?

The Journey

I never knew my heart could beat so fast in such an unromantic way.

I have heard the expression about your heart wanting to explode, yet never before today have I ever felt it. How can my body still work in this state?

One foot struggled to move in front of the other. Clumsily, my body moved itself forward. The Titans from Shingeki no Kyojin would have been proud of my walk.

What I Learned: Goals Gone Astray

First blog post of the year! Wohoo!

Ok, now onto business. I want to talk today about focusing on goals. I also want to highlight my own mistakes, so that other new writers may learn from this and don't have to waste a whole year to figure out the truth.

I was hoping that the first blog post of this year would at least start off on a good note, but unfortunately that is not going to be the case. So here is my bad news. Last year my book sales were very, very low. Almost non existent.

Towards the end of the year, I kept wondering why this was so. Where was I going wrong? Which of my efforts were being ineffective towards my sales?
