As we slide into 2013, what are your writing goals for the future? Even if you don't feel the need for resolutions, I am certain you've given the next few months some thought and consideration, as have I.
Create Your Writer Platform: The Key to Building an Audience, Selling More Books, and Finding Success as an Author. With the rapid changes in publishing, many of us are taking full responsibility for marketing our books. Developing a strong platform is a must for the modern author. Stay tuned for a review of the book later this month. I'm excited to read what Chuck has to say. Some of the points he'll cover:
- The definition of a platform—and why you should start building one now.
- How to harness the 12 Fundamental Principles of Platform.
- "Old School" and "New School" approaches to platform, from article writing and conference speaking to website development, blog posts, and social media avenues.
- How to develop a platform for nonfiction, fiction, and memoir.
If you happen to be online reading this on the holiday, do leave us a comment and share what's on your writing to-do list this first month of the year!
