Writers on Writing: Reader Engagement with LynDee Walker
Social media presence.
Three bitty words that strike fear into the heart of many shiny new authors.
While several of my writer friends were terrified by the prospect of reader interaction because they’re introverts, happy with their computers, coffee, and imaginary friends for months on end, that’s so not me. Anyone who’s met me for more than twelve seconds can tell you I’m about as introverted as Joan Rivers. I love my time with Nichelle and the gang, but I love real-life people too. I’m that woman who makes new friends in line at the grocery store. And I can say without hesitation that the meeting readers part of this gig is the most fun for me.
Writers on Writing: Reader Engagement with Tonya Kappes
There are so many book clubs out there. I’m not talking Oprah or big huge book clubs, I’m talking YOUR readers. I had no idea how many of my readers were in book clubs with their friends until I asked my readers in my newsletter.
This became an untapped new readership to me. I’m known for taking a leap with my marketing ideas and starting a book club was no different.
Writers on Writing: Reader Engagement with Shawn Reilly Simmons
I’ve been a published author for seven months, but I’ve been involved in the mystery writing community going on fifteen years. When I wrote my first book, I wasn’t sure what would happen next, but I was ready to say yes to different opportunities.
