Nowadays it’s not enough just to put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) and write if you want to be a writer.
No, you have to be an IT genius, social media wizard, and advertising guru in order to even have a hope of getting your work noticed. The writing is the easy part, the promoting – not so much.
You have to know how to build and run a website, keep on top of a gazillion social media sites, and have a brand which people will notice.
Or, you could be smart, and buy this totally awesome book – A Writer’s Badass Guide, grab a cocktail (because you can), and read about how to do it in real terms and not IT lingo.
Written by the beautiful and brilliant Nathalie Laitmon and Kristin McCarthy from Suburbanmisfitmom.com, there is a wealth of information in this easy to read book about how to start a website, how to brand it, nurture it, and promote it.
I wish I had had this book when I first started – nevertheless, it has made me retrace my steps and iron out some creases, and it has also given me the impetus to really put the effort in when it comes to marketing myself and my writing.
It’s only available as an Ebook at the moment, but even if you don’t have a kindle you can download a free kindle reader to your laptop or tablet, put your feet up, sip that cocktail and learn!
So – if this is the year you really want to make something of your brand, this is the way to do it!
I’ve read it, I love it, (and the authors are pretty amazing, too!)
