When it comes to building your author platform, many authors and writers start with a blog or Website, and then create a Facebook Page and open an account on twitter or LinkedIn.
Some will take the next steps and build a newsroom or media page.
Others will go a little further and join a writer’s association, group or site.
And a few will even work on setting up interviews, getting a little publicity and doing book tours – virtual or on location.
But too often, when I’m talking to students at the Writer’s Business Academy – or authors I’m interviewing on my show, or to authors who email me, asking for advice, that’s usually where it stops.
And a few months after their book is published, they fade into the background – either because they’re working on a new book, or because they’re just not sure what to do next.
What about you?
Where are you at with your author platform?
If you feel stuck, or that the ‘wheels of publicity’ have rolled over you and left you behind, I invite you to sign up for my 5 Part Course on “Building Your Author’s Platform” -it’s free, and is an excellent introduction to the full course “Author Platform Building 101″ which will be opening to new students on Tuesday, January 18.
