How to Build an Author Platform

For self-published writers, two things always go hand in hand: writing and marketing. Many of us love the first and hate the second, but you need both. You need great books, but you also need great marketing, also known as an author platform.

This is even true for traditionally published authors, though their publisher may be of assistance there. The reality is that you can’t sell books without a platform, a presence, especially online. In this edition of Writers Wednesday, we’ll explore what that author platform can look like. Continue reading “How to Build an Author Platform”

How Do You Know When You’re Ready To Publish?

I’m starting a new weekly thing here on the blog: Writer Wednesdays. Ever since I started writing and publishing gay romances, I’ve met new authors looking for advice. Hell, I was an author looking for advice not too long ago. Now that I’ve self-published eight (nine in a few days) books, I figured the time has come to give back a little, so every Wednesday, I’ll share some advice on writing and self-publishing MM romances. Today, we’ll kick things off with some thoughts on when you’re ready to publish. Continue reading “How Do You Know When You’re Ready To Publish?”
