It’s hard to pursue one without the other.
The thought of marketing often puts a damper on the things you are really passionate about.
My first love is photography. I spend an almost equal amount of time marketing my photography business as I do working as a photographer. That is how I stay ahead in an over saturated market. When I had the chance to photo illustrate my first book, it was published within six months by a publishing house because of my marketing platform on social media.
Last year at a writers conference, I realized most writers are so focused on their craft that they forget to tell people they are writing. They write a great blog, book, or story and no one reads it. No one even knows about it.
This year, I returned to that conference to teach others how to market as a writer on social media. I want to share those skills with YOU as I pursue my own writing journey.
I host a facebook group called Social Media Mavens for writers looking to improve their social media marketing plan. If you want people to know you are a writer- Come join me!
My current work in progress is a fantasy novel. My main characters are tritons– what most legends would mistake for mermaids. So, I stay inspired on my social media with mermaid and ocean themed artwork. What are you writing? Connect with me and let me know!
