Today, I’m over on The Blood-Red Pencil talking about Author Platforms. A lot of authors aren’t sure what an Author Platform is or that they need to have one. Ten, twenty years ago, most authors didn’t need one and, if you did, you were probably a nonfiction author. Today every author, fiction or nonfiction, needs to be aware of what a platform is and how to develop one - before you query or sign on with an agent.
I’m thinking about making this an ongoing, once a month, series over on The Blood-Red Pencil. I’ve started it today with an introduction to Author Platforms. I hope you’ll stop by and tell me what you think - and if you’d like to hear more. You’re also invited to give me your ideas.
See you there!
