I’m back with a Monday Marketing post. So let’s talk about our Marketing plan. One writer I spoke to informed me that they hadn’t really gotten any ideas for marketing and just wanted to get lots of their books published.
It’s that time again! This week’s guest post is an interview with the lovely R B McConnell, check it out!
Q01 – When did you decide you wanted to become a writer?
Have written in journals for twenty odd years, but only really started focusing on it in the past few years.
Q02 – Are there any authors who inspire you?
At the moment I am dipping in and out of Adam Blade’s Beast Quest, only a little way into the series but he is currently inspiring me.
Well with only a day left before NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) starts (runs from 1 Nov – 30 Nov), writers all over the world are scrabbling to pull together plans, develop characters, create schedules or none of the above because they pants all the way.
If I asked you who your book was aimed at, could you tell me?
These may not seem important to some writers, but I can tell you knowing your audience is extremely important. Knowing who is your audience is needed for things like choosing a Beta Reader or asking for ARC (Advance Reader Copy) reviews.
Once again I have been harassing other writers to guest post on this blog. This week’s guester is the lovely Cass Alexander, who talks about whether to use a Pen Name. Enjoy!
My Name’s Not Cass, But You Can Call Me Cass
by Cass Alexander
Prior to publishing my first romance novel, my husband and I debated whether I should publish under my real name or use a pen name. Marketing, in the short term, would be easier if I used my legit name, because I know lots of people. And, let’s face it, it’s pretty damn cool to see your name slapped on the cover of a book.
But, in the end, I didn’t have the balls to use my real name. Like all healthy, well-adjusted citizens of the world, I blame societal pressures.
