More of the M word
. . . not murder, marketing!
Last week, I mentioned social media by creating an author’s page via: Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Goodreads, etc, etc, etc. I hope you have done that already? If not, do it now! At least, set-up Facebook & Twitter author’s pages.
How to build an author
First of all, the majority of construction begins within YOU.
One of the hardest transitions for me was stepping out of “writer” and into the role of “author”. I felt my little hobby wasn’t worth mentioning. I didn’t declare it until the publish date was set on The Sphere of Archimedes. I blurted-out to a stranger “I’m an author”, and felt stupid afterword. But, I knew in my heart it IS my new identity.
If your writing is more than a hobby, then it’s time to be serious and embrace you—the author. Okay, you never went to college, and got a degree in English Lit. So? I’m sure that’s one of many excuses you’ve concocted in your head. Believe in yourself.
