Building a Fan Base Before You Publish

It’s easy to generate attention, but the tricky part is keeping the interest. 

Building a fan base is something that every author needs to do before they even get started writing. It will help you publish your book and generate the buzz you want simply by having a group of engaged readers who support your work along your journey. 

Turning interest into engagement is challenging but achievable with the right platform and engaging content.


Emerging writers need to start with a center stage to showcase their writing skills constantly. Your platform is crucial to formally present your stories and deliver an experience to prospective readers that can get them closer to you. Once your readership grows, you can consider setting up a newsletter to give interested readers an exclusive channel to be informed about you. Consider the following options to get started with your platform:

  1. WordPress
  2. Blogger 
  3. Twitter
  4. Instagram
  5. Facebook


Creating a fan base is about giving your most loyal supporters a reason to stay connected, and content creation is the initial step to displaying your expertise. Sharing your work will help you generate buzz about your stories and writing career, which can help you build momentum and gather support as you prepare for the publication of your book. Here are some topics to consider for your content: 

  1. Writing Samples/ Excerpts
  2. Book Recommendations
  3. Bold Takes
  4. Daily Activities
  5. News Opinion Columns

Do your research, be persistent, and you’ll get there. For more information, don’t hesitate to contact us at [email protected].
