Keep it real friends. A self-help post here, for sure. I’ve seen too many people put too many completely and utterly unrealistic bookselling stresses on themselves and in the process ruin their entire bookmaking experience. Be real. Be real and have WAY more fun, which is precisely what bookmaking should be. This is not to say it can’t also be important, professional, strategic, but for the love of God don’t go from zero to “How am I going to support myself on book sales?” The reality is that most of us won’t, ever, so don’t sweat it. Learn what a book really is and how to use them as part of your overall life as a creative.
