#SOOP on Monday: Top 30 Short Story & Book Ideas of July

“Getting an audience is hard. Sustaining an audience is hard. It demands a consistency of thought, of purpose and of action over a long period of time.” 
                                                                                                   – Bruce Springsteen                                             
Congratulations to the top performers of July!
 
SOOP’s Annual Short Story Contest has officially closed the submission phase, and today we want to talk about one of the fundamental groups you need to work on: your fan base
 
Do we bet you are wondering how you would be able to build a fan base before you publish? Building a fan base is something that an author needs to do before you even get started writing. It will help you publish your book and generate the buzz you want.
 
It’s easy to generate attention, but the tricky part is keeping the interest. That is where all the hard work comes in. Gaining traction may make you feel like you are accomplishing something; however, the hard reality is that you won’t get anywhere if you don’t reach your target audience. 
 
Turning attraction into action is challenging but achievable with the right platform and engaging content. 
 
Visit our blog about Building a Fan Base before you Publish to learn more.
