Now is a perfect time to start your marketing efforts!

  1. Start an author blog and chronicle your process. Your readers will like following you on your journey from story idea to published book. Wordpress and Blogger offer free blog platforms that are easy to start and use. Don't worry about a following at first... your fans will come. A blog is a way for you to connect with your fans and others.
  2. Write for other blogs. Write guest posts on other blogs. Often you can provide links to your facebook page, twitter and blog or web site at the end of your post. Guest posting expands your reach. Future fans will meet you this way. You establish yourself as approachable. You can encourage others to pursue their dreams as you pursue yours.
  3. Submit articles to magazines and newspapers. You develop your writing skills. You learn if your writing is professional enough for publications. You establish yourself as a “published author” and add more credibility to your name.

   Build your “fan base” while you are completing your manuscript. When your book is ready, you can let your friends, family and followers know… they can help you spread the word!

Best wishes, writers!
