Writer To Writer

Writer’s  Tip  3: Author Events  When you get your book published, whether self or traditional, you now have a product to promote and sell.  Actually, you have two products, your work and yourself.  In the excitement of seeing the book in print, it is easy to forget the second half of this equation.  You, the writer, are very much on display.  The way you dress, the way you speak and the way you act will make or not make sales when you are adressing an audience in person.  Equally, the way you present yourself on the internet also has a bearing on your sales.

Find your personality, that part of you with which you are most comfortable and which you feel is the most appealing to others.  Showcase that part of you.  If you like that one on one engagement with others, decide your best approach and use that.  Every event gives you an opportunity to hone your skills. to notice what works and what does not.  If you can, take a friend with you to sit in the audience and monitor the response.  Discuss the good and bad so that the next time you are more effective.

The same is true of your internet exposure.  Pay attention to what works and what does not.  What gets you more followers and what just sits on the page and receives no notice.

Keep in mind also, that your readers take the time and the money to buy your books.  They make that choice for a reason.  Someway, somehow you have touched them, made them want to hear what you have to say.  Value and respect that and you will build an audience that waits for your next book.

  1. Great information. Lucky me I ran across your blog by chance (stumbleupon).
    I have saved it for later!

    • Great to have a new visitor to my blog. Hope you enjoy your time with me. Let me know what you think. I love feedback.

    • Thanks for stopping in and for the compliment. I love feedback since I am constantly changing and increasing my pages. Let me know if you have any suggestions.

  2. I think everything wrote was very reasonable.

    However, consider this, suppose you added a little content?

    I am not suggesting your content isn’t good., however what if you
    added a post title to maybe get a person’s attention? I mean Writer To Writer
    | Lacey Dancer is kinda boring. You ought to glance at Yahoo’s home page and
    note how they create news titles to get people interested.

    You might add a related video or a related pic or two to get readers
    interested about everything’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it could bring your website a little bit more interesting.

  3. My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less.
    I’ve been using WordPress on a variety of websites for about
    a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
    I have heard great things about blogengine.net.

    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?
    Any help would be really appreciated!

    Without a doubt, you may ask yourself if https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0QVK9K5FoPY
    is recommended.

    • I really like WordPress for my needs now. I don’t know anything about importing information from it to another site. I’m sorry I can’t help you.

    • The main thing about writing is to write. In today’s busy world that is often easier said than done especially if you are a single person tring to handle a number ot things. Publishing adds just another layer of work that must be fed into each day’s schedule. It’s worth the work even on days when I am positive I don’t have a single extra minute.

  4. I regularly post 400×400 square images and 843×403 rectangular images as part
    of promotions on Facebook and use links to drive the viewers to contests,
    special deals, etc. This tool (once called Pin – Clout) is very similar to Facebook Insights.
    There are different ways on getting invited to
    Pinterest.

  5. Hi
    okay so i’m being a bit cheeky! i finally found a website for you and have now got high hopes that you plan to re-issue in ebook all your fabulous Sara Chance books. I adore them. I have Double Solitaire (omg i love love love the H), Woman in the Shadows, This Wildfire Magic..

    Okay fine – all the backlist – pretty please do you have plans to re-issue? I know you have Choices (aka Silent Enchantment) so now its given me hope for the rest!

    Thanks!
    Happy Writing!

    • Sorry for the delay in answering your post. Had trouble with the comments part of the site, a lot of trash that I had to sort through. I read everything and it took time. I’m glad you enjoy my books. Yes, I do plan to reprint all of the Lacey Dancer books and the Sara Chance as well. Diamond on Ice will be the next one coming out, later this year. I am also working on a new one and I just finished the non fiction which was very time consuming to complete. Very glad to be getting back to my fiction work.

  6. Can I just say what a relief to uncover a person that truly understands what they’re talking about online.
    You actually realize how to bring a problem to light and make it
    important. A lot more people really need to read this and understand this side of your story.
    I can’t believe you aren’t more popular because you certainly have
    the gift.

    • There are so many bloggers that being the star among so many is difficult. Thanks for the good wishes and the great comments.

  7. Awesome blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?

    I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for
    a paid option? There are so many options out there that
    I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any recommendations?

    Appreciate it!

    • I use Blue Host and Word Press and I am very happy with both. Coaches are available to help set up the blog so that made creating the site a lot easier. Hope that helps.
