Writers' Platform-Building Campaign

I've always struggled with how exactly to build my platform, since my novels are hard to pin down genre and audience-wise. Self-marketing is vitally important in an e-book market, especially for folks who plan to go indie or self-pub, like me. Tiger linked me to the Writers' Platform-Building Campaign and I thought, hey, why not give it a shot?

So that's what I'll be doing starting today, August 22, through October 31st. If you're a writer, you should join me/us! The link above includes info about the campaign as well as instructions for joining. The list will close August 31st.

  1. Me again! LOL... Glad Tiger brought you into the campaign - I've found the blogging community to be super awesome and supportive and I hope you will, too! :-)

  2. I'm just now getting into the blogging community--I find I'm often absent-minded and forget to comment, ha. I'm trying to be better about it, though. :)

  9. I just found your post on my Romance Conundrum article :) I have already written those books, and they're contracted with Lyrical Press (I had a great response from agents in general, but the commercial market is just not in favour of these books, as you pointed out). My problem is that most review sites aren't geared up towards non-romance erotica--hence the conundrum. That said, I follow a lot of intelligent reviewers and I'll probably be sending the first book out before Christmas...so we shall see! Thanks for your support.
