Balance the Life, Live it as it is!!

Do you feel stuck in your life? Do you feel that whatever you do doesn’t bring any happiness? Do you think the life which you were leaving is not what really you want? Then you are not alone I am with you.

I have searched for a solution all over internet. There are hundreds in there. But not necessarily everything is for you. We are living our life. No one is sure what situation we are in.
The life which we live will be only measured by ourselves. Others can give you multiple choices but the one which suits you should be selected only by you.

I was going through similar situation few months before. I didn’t know what to do with my life. Life felt to be meaningless in many situations. After searching through n number of websites I understood one thing life is what we take it. There is nothing which blooms forever. We cannot expect to be happy all the time. We might not even take things positively all the time.

Its ok to be sad, its ok to be frustrated, its ok to be upset about things. That’s life. Nothing is forever. Live life as it is.
Yesterday I was tired, upset, got down on myself. But today was better. it will be the same for you.
Balance with what’s important and let the rest fall as it is!!

You are not supposed to be happy all the Time. Life hurts and it is hard. Not because you are doing it wrong, but it hurts for everybody. Don’t avoid the pain, you need it. It meant for you. Be still with it, let it come, let it go, let it leave it with the fuel you’ll burn to get your work done on this earth – Glennon Doyle Melton.

How to Recover from a Launch Disaster

By Terry Whalin @terrywhalin

How do you recover from a book launch disaster? Over 4,500 new books are published every day.  As someone who has been in publishing for years, I understand without the author's active role, little happens.

In recent years, I've watched authors launch books and participate in their launch teams. I've gotten advance reading copies of the book, read it then posted my reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, and Barnes & Noble. I've taken online courses on launching books. As an acquisitions editor for a New York publisher, Morgan James Publishing, I've watched many other authors launch their books. Like many things in publishing, I've found not everything will go according to your plans.

While I've written more than 60 books, I haven't published a new book in several years. My newest book, 10 Publishing Myths released to the bookstores on December 17th. Last year, I asked New York Times bestselling author, Jerry B. Jenkins …

Face the Silence With Action

By Terry Whalin @terrywhalin

Are you getting silence as you reach out to literary agents or editors during the holidays? Yes you might get a little response such as holiday greetings or Merry Christmas. From my years in this business, there is often a shift in the community from right before Thanksgiving until right after New Year's Day. People put off sending manuscripts. If they have a book contract from a publisher, they often delay to sign it until after January 2nd and any number of other decisions of this nature.

My authors are Morgan James are still active and corresponding with me but little is finalizing and moving forward—so mostly silent in some ways. How do you handle this silence? Does it stop your writing and your work in the community? In this article, I want to give you some pro-active idea of what you can do to be productive and face the silence with action.

1. Read books on the craft of writing. As you read these books, use a highlighter and post-it notes to take ac…

Get A Realistic Publishing Perspective

By Terry Whalin @terrywhalin

I've spoken with many authors about their plans and ambitions for their published book. Authors pour a lot of energy into writing their manuscript and creating a book proposal or careful pitch of their book for editors or literary agents. These authors make statements to me like:

“My book will be a bestseller.”

“My book will make a lot of money.” 

“My book will sell ____ copies.”

Also over many years in publishing, I've had publishers tell me that my book would be in airport bookstores and they had plans to market and sell many copies of the book. Conventional wisdom in publishing says the larger the advance, the greater the publisher investment and the greater they will have to invest in marketing to get this investment back and more. I've been blessed to get a couple of six-figure advances—but I have lengthy stories (not good ones) about how each of these books turned out in the market.

From my years in publishing, I know and understan…
