It's been another exciting month filled with book and writing-related activities. Honestly, there is so much more to being an author than I had initially realized. It's intriguing - thinking of interesting articles, blog posts, and stories to write as well as new ways to promote said work - and pushes me creatively.
But the more I learn, I more I realize I don't know. So, I'll continue to read articles about writing, write as much as I can, and continue to implement new ways to promote myself and my work.
Speaking of promoting... in the last month, I created a new Facebook author page https://www.facebook.com/MayaTylerAuthor. I also created a new meme for my book Dream Hunter.
I've found exposure on multiple sites is a great way to get your name out there. I recently interviewed with The Drunken Druid for The Thursday Interview and Book Reader Magazine for their Featured Author segment. Books Go Social continued to promote Dream Hunter by tweeting my blog post What's in a Name? (viewed over 2100 times) and advertising Dream Hunter in their monthly email. Readers Gazette is also promoting Dream Hunter on Twitter with lovely 'Have you read this book yet?' posters. And, just last week, Book Excursions Book Reviews showcased Dream Hunter on Facebook in their weekly competition.
On my plate right now...
Writing... working on an article, 2 blog posts, and 3 short stories, and editing a full-length novel...
Promotion... working on building a larger following for my blog Maya's Musings... Just commissioned a new button for my site...
Thanks for keeping in touch! Have a great day! :)
