Many successful writers started off as bloggers and they connect with amazing like-minded writers along the journey. I started blogging in 2013 and based on the topics I write on, I was able to connect with many writers who provided me useful tips on writing and blogging, and most importantly engage with the topics I write on as well.
I believe when you have a good following, your marketing efforts would be made easy when you publish a book. It is also a great way to brand yourself as an author.
If you regularly publish blogs to stay connected with your readers, share with us about your blogging journey and drop your blog link below.
I personally feel that, as an author, it is crucial to attend book festivals to connect with the like-minded communities. It is where you can meet readers, writers, publishers and literary agents who may represent your work one day.
Attending author events can be costly and that is the reason why I chose to attend three of the many interesting writing-related workshops and book launch that took place October this year. I wish I could attend all of them and meet as many interesting people from the events but time and cost are the two factors that would often prompt us to prioritize our choice, which I think is good as we are forced to think efficiently.
I am in the midst of finding out how to encrypt work shared digitally, especially for the purpose of getting beta readers to critique our work and to get #bookreviewers and #booktubers review our books. Author Review Copy (ARC) is what we call the books sent to readers in exchange for a review, but when it is sent in PDF form, it is just a matter of time before the whole book gets copied and sold elsewhere.
A simple google search moments ago helped me discover this website which I believe has a lot more other useful tips for authors and I would highly encourage you to read it. Also let me know in the comment below if you have actually used any softwares that help you safely sell encrypted e-books or if any of these precaution measures helped you in the past?
David Farland is one of the authors constantly providing valuable tips for writers and I would recommend you to check out his subscription site if you’d like to be in touch with his updates regularly.
I’ve been watching other writers now for nearly fifty years, thanks in part to a neighbor I had as a kid. I was born and raised in Oregon, and in the late 60s, the Hippie Generation was on the move. https://ift.tt/2LK4ARK

I recently came across authors who probably felt that it is okay to tag their friends in social media every single day in the posts they publish, drop snippets of their book and links to their Amazon site as comments under their friends non-book related posts, and comment in an unengaging way with their friends probably with the hope that it enhances their author branding.
Guess what? It is not going to help people notice you. I think, in order to stop getting overwhelmed with the needs to comment excessively, one should narrow down their focus, and try engaging with people whose posts you genuinely like.
It is also a part of your journey in creating your very own tribe of readers.
