But then, a bit of time goes by, and I don’t like it so much anymore. Take this blog. I changed it to the 3 columns so that I could add my books to the left.
Now, when I look at it, it annoys me.
It also gives me issues when I want to add a picture to a blog post. Then, the whole page seems plastered by pictures.
I’m also considering combining my blog and website into 1 site. I think that’ll make it easier to find what one wants, and less time for me to update (which means I might actually manage to fit it into my hectic schedule, LOL)
So, you tell me. Do you like the layout of my blog (regardless of the fact I haven’t actually updated my ‘Recent Releases’ since Dragos 3 came out).
Q4U: What do you like to see at an author’s website or blog?
How many of you are writers -vs- readers who don’t write?
What would you like to hear from me (or any author) on a blog?
Not only do I have my beautiful cover, but this Friday, I also have my very first book coming out.
Okay, I’m back and slightly calmer.
But it almost seems unbelievable. It doesn’t matter this has taken years to achieve. It still feels like it happened overnight. Just a few months ago I received my first contract. Last week, I got the most gorgeous cover.
And now, in just a few days, my baby will be out there in the world for all to see.
Learning ‘All About Marketing’. Wow.
Who woulda thunk there was so much to learn about such an innocent seeming topic. But with any publisher now-a-days, E or New York, they’re all asking authors to carry a heavy part of the marketing bucket.
I think my brain’s about to explode.
But I’m learning. And soon (hopefully for the love of sanity) it will become a familiar thing.
I read a great document sent to me by my publisher. The one thing stressed above all others was the time.
As authors, we need to get the most bang for our buck–not just money, but time.
So right now, Marketing is taking up a lot of time. But as I get the hang of it, I’ll find new ways to use the time to set up, then be able to keep the ball rolling with little effort. It’s finding that ‘downhill’ that I’m working on now.
You tell me, what is your favorite way to market?
