This is the follow up to my last post about how to boost sales and get readers which you can read here. When you mention a certain demographic, you really should give them a chance to have their own platform. So, this post is about that sector of the writing world who do not choose to be speakers. Those people who like sitting back and using the social media circles to make friends and influence people. I ain’t mad at ya, as the young folks say.

Boost your book sales, get readers

Boost your book sales, get readers

We are writers. We have talent. And of that talent, there are many facets. One such facet of our talents, when honed to a fine point, will give you a significant edge that will result in better book sales.

End of Year Reflection: Love What You Have Done-Comprehend What Didn’t Happen

End of Year Reflection: Love What You Have Done-Comprehend What Didn’t Happen As writers, we all tread the same path, and the end of a year punctuates our successes and failures. I love how we can plan out our goals and follow up on them, success and loss. Many of you have kept me accountable with what I wanted to accomplish and what I managed to do. As the year wanes, I am certainly having moments of reflection. I did some things right, and some were just not done. It’s fun to tell my blog followers when I make a
