Make a Difference in the Writing Community

Great advice from author Tricia Drammeh

Most authors at one time or another have dreamed of taking the writing world by storm with a breakout bestselling novel. I’m sure most of us still harbor hope this will happen. Regardless of sales or monetary success, we can still make a difference in the writing community. Whether you’re published or still writing your first novel, you can make a huge impact. Here’s how:

  1. Make connections. I recently read an excellent blog post by Susan Toy that discusses online connections and engagement. When it comes to Twitter and blog followers, some people mistake quantity for quality. Would you rather have 100 followers who regularly visit and comment on your blog, or 1000 followers you never hear from again?

Unasked-For Advice to New Writers About Money

I found this in my inbox this morning and thought it was excellent advice and very eye opening.  This is the reality of being a writer and dealing with the money side of it.  Since a couple of you emphasized the business side of writing, I thought this was especially worth passing on over here in case you don’t see this somewhere else on the Internet.

This post is long, but it’s worth reading in its entirety.

A Book Marketing Virtual Summit You Can Take From the Comfort of Your Home

I’m passing along information for this online event called Author Marketing Live! which is presenting the Virtual Book Success Summit.  It’s from January 26-30.

Since one of the things people coming to this blog would like to learn is how to market their books, I came across this virtual summit and thought it might be of interest to some reading this.  The problem with most conferences is that they often require you to travel somewhere, which can be hard to do with day jobs, kids, lack of funds, etc.

The best thing is you get access to all these presentations.  You don’t have to be online when the person is presenting the topic.  You can watch the video recording when you have time to sit down and relax.  So it’s on your time when it’s convenient for you.  They’ll even provide transcripts.  And it looks like you can access the materials even after this online event ends on January 30, which makes it even more convenient.

So if you want fresh, new ideas on how to market, I suggest going to this.  I figured I’d go ahead and attend since Joanna Penn at The Creative Penn mentioned it on a podcast.  Joanna Penn’s advice is worth taking.

In my opinion, this event is an excellent deal.  You get a lot of great information for the price they’re asking, and the speakers are top-notch.  If you’re serious about the business side of writing, I highly recommend this.
