Book Notes

Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World by Michael Hyatt

Clear, concise info on the why and how of building an online and an offline presence.  If you want to find and connect with your audience, discover and build your brand, and learn to use social media in a productive way, read this book.

Dream Eyes by Jayne Ann Krentz

JAK delivers her usual alpha hero and the woman who can handle him in this continuation of her Copper Beach paranormal series. I wish I’d paid more attention to the signposts that led to the answers these two were seeking. Or maybe, that the signposts had been at least discernible in retrospect. The final ending sets up the next book and leaves the reader looking forward to another adventure.

 

 

Why am I Here?

I have to admit to being dragged to this blog idea like a calf to a branding – kicking and bawling all the way. So why am I here?

About year ago, I decided that if I wanted to have  career as a writer, I’d need to be known to a few more people. Writing the books is fun but now I need readers. So, I jumped in with both feet to research the dreaded “platform”.

I discovered that I needed a web site or a blog or both and I found a great course to teach me to build a web site.  The course – Web Site Kick Start, taught by Tara Gentile – did as promised . In six weeks I had a web site complete with a custom theme, a  blog page, an about me page. It looked good, but it lacked content.

Two writing conferences, many classes and books on writing craft (more on these later) and a contest win later, the web site still looks good.

So, why am I here?

I’ve completed a book and I’m in the midst of revisions on another and my web site still lacks content – until today.

How are you building your platform?
