BPM: Has social media changed how you feel about any authors?

No, I have learned how to separate the work from the person. So I want be disappointed. As long as you write a good book. I have no problem with you; but if the book is not good, then we have a problem.

In the words of Don Miguel Ruiz “Don’t Take Anything Personally: Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.”

BPM: Do you have any words of wisdom for others who might want to start a book blog?

In the famous words of Nike ‘Just Do It.’ If you are getting into this business to be about yourself or to be famous. Turn and exit now. Be prepared to invest long hours into your blog and be patient. The followers, authors, and publishers don’t come overnight. If anyone tells you ‘No,’ don’t take it personal. Just keep moving forward and be very creative.
