Writers on Wednesday: Eric Mondschein’s Author-Driven Marketing JourneyContinues

Author-driven marketing is a process, and at times it feels like a never-ending process. As I have said before, I keep posting daily to my Facebook page, Twitter (I now have over 7,550 followers) and LinkedIn accounts, and I try to post at least once a month to my website. At times it can be daunting, but as I have also mentioned, and it is worth … [Read more...]

Wednesday is for Writers: Nicole Collet on using clichés in writing

I have always loved to read and write, and people said I wrote very well. For me, writing well meant knowing all the right expressions and word combinations: this usually goes with that, and so and so and so. Armed to the teeth, with bated breath, close but no cigar, dressed to kill, fall on deaf ears, speak louder than, from the bottom of the … [Read more...]

Wednesdays are for Writers: Joanne Mallon on How to Finish Writing a Book

Starting to write a book is easy. Lots of people start to write books (or say they're going to, one day). Finishing a book, on the other hand, is a whole other matter. It's what separates those who dream of becoming an author from those who actually become one. In my head I have started writing shelves full of books, but I have only actually … [Read more...]

Wednesday is for Writers: Nicole Collet’s publishing journey

So I am finally publishing my book. I can hardly believe it. It’s been a long, intense and exhausting journey. Writing, rewriting-to-death based on readers’ feedback (regular readers, contest judges, editors, friends) and on my own readings about storytelling techniques. Some great fiction and non-fiction books also sparked interesting ideas. … [Read more...]

How I Used SOOP to Get a Publishing Contract

We all know that SOOP is a publishing company and that it publishes authors who write good books and who show an ability to build and maintain an effective author platform, but did you know that SOOP is also a way to introduce yourself to other publishers? Three publishers, since November 18, have invited me to send them copies of Sealed! One even … [Read more...]

Wednesday is for Writers: Christian Lee on keeping your momentum

Remember the first time you were able to drive on your own without your nagging parent telling you to turn with a half-second to spare? That was super exciting, right? Do you honestly get that excited about the prospect of driving to work now? Probably not. I think that the same thing can happen with books –we get really excited when we get the … [Read more...]

Wednesday is for Writers: Nicole Collet finds her readership

I would like to share my journey as a first-time fiction writer and how I found my readership. Perhaps that will inspire and enlighten whoever reads this. It all started 3 years ago when I read a news article about a fellow Brazilian writer who had posted a young-adult novel in English on Wattpad, the largest online reading community in the … [Read more...]

Wednesday is for Writers: Christian Lee discusses using short links for marketing

Any time I hear someone say “less is more”, I tend to roll my eyes and think that he has never munched on a good steak or had a few bucks in his pocket. The whole concept just sounds ridiculous, but it holds true in certain areas. One of these areas is that of book promotion. When promoting my own book idea, Sealed, I like to use shortened … [Read more...]
