Keeping the Promise: 10 Unwritten Promises Readers Expect You to Keep
Every time a reader purchases a book, they’re entering into a contract with you. You promise them certain things…and if you fail to deliver, you’ll get bad reviews. The hard part? You (the author) made promises that you didn’t know about! This talk will help you understand the unwritten promises that readers expect so that you can satisfy them, sell more books, and get to the next level of your author career. You’ll avoid rookie mistakes that some authors make for years without realizing it. From your book’s cover to the first page to the final chapter, this talk will stop you from getting sued in the court of reader opinion!
