David H. Burton, author of Broken: A Paranormal Romance, said in a recent interview with Kobo, that the best piece of advice he ever received as a writer is that this is a business and a subjective one at that.
“First, this is a business. If you’re going to publish, treat it as such. Be professional and package your book accordingly. Second, this is a subjective business – there will be readers that will hate your work. It’s fine. We all don’t love the same books. And there will be readers that gush over your work. Don’t take any of it personally because it’s not.” – David H. Burton on Self-Publishing
