Let’s talk book Marketing!

Hi everyone.

Those of you who frequent my blog may have noticed a minor change in the form of a new menu, Articles, which possess two subsections; Digital Marketing, and Writing Tips

Here you will not only easily find any useful tips I share going forward, but also information on marketing. (No, I am not trying to sell you any services)

I am taking a course in marketing, and I am finding it really useful. So I thought I would interpret and share the knowledge and focusing it on the dreaded book marketing platform.

Work in progress

Hi all and welcome to my blog.  I am fairly new to social media and a complete novice at blogging.  These are things I am attempting to correct in hope to meet new people and (I won’t lie) hopefully generate a following for my work.

I am an aspiring fantasy author, although currently seeking agent representation for my work I do have high hopes that at some point in the future my work will be available for the public.

It’s an exciting time, my worst enemy at the moment is impatience.  I have worked really hard on ensuring the quality of my work, the strength of plot and characters.  I am eager to hear something, anything back from the people I have submitted my work to.  I have already received two rejections, yet one of them had a positive spins and advised  that the work wasn’t quite right for them, but I should keep looking.  It was a much nicer rejection than the form letters or no replies I had anticipated.  I imagine I will have many more rejections, but it only takes one person to say yes, one person to believe that my work is a good fit for their company.  I am optimistic, optimistic but impatient, I really want people to read my work, to hear what they think, good or bad, every opinion.

I plan to keep this blog as a record of my thoughts and progress on my aim of becoming a published author, if you are reading it, I hope you’ll enjoy sharing this journey with me.
