  • “When they really know their audience…A really smart author can make a lot of money if they can sell a lot of books.” 
  • “The book itself is not usually the thing that makes people money. It’s usually what they can do with that book.”  
  • “Sometimes landing on the right title, or the right concept, or the right way of speaking about something, is how you take an idea from, from good to great.”
