How to build your writing platform

Building author platform

I’m starting something new.

Well, actually it’s not new. I’ve been doing this for the past six years, I’m just now noticing that I’m doing this.

I’ve been building an author platform for the past couple of years. In fact, I’ve helped others do the same thing, consulting on social media and asking blogging questions.

I even started a section on this blog about, well, blogging and social media stuff for writers and other artists. Every time I post something in that section, I get more questions and people who want to know more.  That’s great! I love the fact that more writers are embracing the idea of the author platform and being more in control of their writing careers.

For too long, writers have been extremely dependent on others for marketing of their own novels and projects. In this  age of social media and web publishing tools, it’s easier for the writer to control that part of their career. In fact, if a writer doesn’t take advantage of it, they are missing out on a big part of careers.

I’m here to help with that. I’m working on a site that will help writers with their platform. Until then, I’m writing some of my favorite tips in a newsletter. Yes, that means that those tips are only available to the people who really are interested in getting going and working on this part of their career. 

Yup. A newsletter. I’m building a separate site just for building the author platform but until then, let’s get this party started!
