14 Things Writers Miss When Building Their Author Platforms | Christa Wojo.

Authors, this is a must-read. I’ve known Christa now for a few years. She knows her stuff. Personally, I am not a big fan of automation (#11) and I can work on #12 myself (I am pretty good being consistent on Twitter and the Blog but I need to work on Insta and Facebook) but pay special attention to #1.

It’s well worth the extra money to invest in a domain name for your website/blog. No matter how you spin it, sites with yourname.wix, yourname.wordpress, yourname.weebly, etc. will never be as professional as yourname.com. Even if you are not an author reading this, if you have a business invest in a domain name. You may have to pay a little extra a year but you’ll make that back in sales because it is easier to find your site. It also becomes easier for media personnel to find you too for other projects. An interested reader will most likely Google your author name dot com so try for that before getting a dot net.

  1. Describe the place where dramatic irony occurs. Can you introduce that in a written scene? How would you do it? (Don’t know what dramatic irony is? Join the club.) OR
  2. Describe the action in the chase scene between the Mercedes Driver (The Nazi) and the Caprice driver (The Jewish Guy). Can you write that scene? Why or why not? OR
  3. The place where the nanny is crossing the street and the little girl…

Have You Stumbled Upon Me Yet?

OK, that was whack LOL.

But, I am finally on StumbleUpon and thought I’d take this time to do some shameless self-promotion.

I don’t have much of my own post up yet (because I just started) but I will start to drip feed posts on that platform when I share my posts across the others. (You can too! Just Stumble Me using the share button at the bottom there).

This also means more exposure for those authors of my Book Reviews…yesss.

You can find me here: http://www.stumbleupon.com/stumbler/Yecheilyah

Now go, carry on with your day and spread the word!
