Welcome back to another Monday Marketing post! Today’s post is about working out what “success” means to you.
Everyone’s level of success is different and if you constantly use someone else’s definition of success rather than your own, that could cause problems.
I welcome back author Devon Ellington to my blog to share with us more of her writer knowledge. Today’s guest post is all about doing a better book signing. Enjoy!
I’m back with another Monday Marketing post, and today’s topic is all about the Call To Action tactic and why we need to think more carefully about how to use them.
Writing is often considered a lonely profession, and while it’s true that it’s a solitary task, it does not have to be lonesome. Even a socially-awkward, highly-anxiety-ridden person like myself, can make connections within the writing community.
This week’s guest poster is the wonderful blogger and author Rachel Walton, from Wordlander. Enjoy!
Firstly, big thanks to everyone who listened to my audio interview in last Friday’s post and gave their support. It was truly appreciated and has removed some of the terror from such activities.
Anyway, onto today’s topic:
We continue with the second part of the guest post “Write what you know” by author Nathalie Andrews. Do make sure to check out her social media links and her current book!
“Write What You Know” (part 2)
By Nathalie Andrews
“You’ll find it really hard to stay away from stereotypes.”
This is true. There is almost always a stereotype to fall into somewhere. Women are emotional; men are strong! If these are stereotypes, should I only write weak men and emotionally-repressed women?
This week’s guest poster is my dear friend C from HappyMeerkatReviews who not only writes but also produces awesome book reviews and is one of the nicest people I’ve met in internet land!
Book Reviewing by C
Being a book reviewer is something far more rewarding than I ever imagined. Being able to read books and talk/write about how great they are is something I’ve only been doing for a short time but it’s so rewarding, especially when you find a gem from a new and unheard of author.
For me reviewing starts with reading. I can never read more than two books at a time, one fiction and one non-fiction (memoirs are like fiction for me). This is because I’m one of those people who loves to get completely absorbed by a book and I couldn’t do it if I had several going at once.
I have read a number of articles that talk about speeding up your story. They talk about how a writer can “bog down” the plot by going too slowly… How the plot should barrel along like some runaway train, dragging the reader with it. So today’s post is about pacing.
