THE MAGIC OF COLLABORATION


1038123_people_series

When I began the process of writing a book, it was with little or no knowledge of what I was in fact taking on. I assumed I’d put pen to paper, scribble out a few thousand words, and voila, I’d have a masterpiece.

Yeah, not so much.

Writing is a long, slow, self-doubting, trial and error, pull your hair out, labor of love.

Crafting the Perfect One-Liner

But in the midst of all that tugging and crying, sometimes magic occurs.

From the making of many new friends in the romance industry who are more than willing to share their secrets to success, and online workshops to better my craft.

Various blogs have often stated the importance of social media. Of promoting your product without pushing it into the faces of potential clients.

Sounds easy, doesn’t it?

Except it’s not.

How do you tell people about your work of art, without becoming the pesky mosquito they want to squash?

I’ve decided to take the advertising route. This way my book appears in many places such as blogs, magazines, guest interviews, here and there on Facebook and Twitter, and now U-Tube.

You read that right, 🙂

Thanks to Shades of Rose Media, I now have a beautiful new book trailer for Tidal Falls !!

I’d love to hear what you think, Tameria did an amazing job, didn’t she? 🙂

  1. It’s a frustrating career (writer), but the rewards can be awesome. Keep believing in the gift you have. We are fortunate to have social media that can open us up to the entire world. As writers we shouldn’t compete, we should unite.
    Video is a nice extra… Keep it going 🙂

    1. So true, Last of the Authors, it is frustrating. But it can also be one of the most amazing experiences you’ll ever have. For me, it’s never been about the money, though that’s of course a nice benefit, lol. I always dreamed of having something I wrote enjoyed by others. To have the validation that, yes, I can do it. Do you have any other advice for marketing? I’m always ready to learn, 🙂

      1. Agree completely, while money is a bonus writing is an art form that you want to reach out to people.
        Best advice I can give on marketing, this through my author connections, is make yourself a brand… Build a network of fans… And treat your die hard fans (exclusive signed copies/unreleased content) little goodies that keep them wanting. It is your die hard fans that will make others buy your book. I’m a huge Hugh Howey fan, he connects himself to his fans and never looses touch with the root of his success. Friends and family and other bloggers will ask me for a book recommendation… Of course I will always put him first (as a die hard fan)
