The Need For Instant Gratification

Hello, dear readers. It is my pleasure to present to you another amazing Rave Reviews Book Club Spotlight Author. Introducing  J. A. Stinger, author of Generations Beyond. Take it away, J.A.

thumbs up

We all want it, the validation that all our hard work… the blood, sweat, and tears have been worth it. For us, the writers and authors, it’s the reviews. We post our work online and wait for the words from our readers to start pouring in. We hit that refresh button and wait… and wait… and wait some more. After a while, frustration sets in. After that, self-doubt. Did we promote enough? Did we let enough people know? Was our platform solid enough? Was our work as good as we thought it was?

The cold, hard truth is this… everything worthwhile takes time. It’s true that we want everything good to happen the moment that we put our heart and soul into something. But reality doesn’t work like that. Good things come to those who wait. Word of mouth travels, but it goes at its own pace, and there’s nothing we can do to speed it up. We can always ask people that have read our books to tell their friends, but we can’t force it. We can ask for those all-important reviews, but nothing is guaranteed.
