Author Platform – How Visible Is Yours?

Publishingby Annette Young

There’s so much advice available in the book publishing world and it is often overwhelming for anyone new to the realms of publishing. But, one thing you may have heard of is that of the author platform. Make no mistake, it is an absolute necessity for any serious writer and forms a solid starting point on which to build your career. The best way of building your author platform is to have your very own website. It doesn’t need to be ultra-fancy. In fact, the best author sites are aesthetically pleasing and simplistic in terms of design. You just need to direct potential readers to your site and to intrigue them long enough that they may wish to read an excerpt of your book, or, to sign up for your mailing list so that you can tempt them at a later date.

Publishing Help

These days, it’s seemingly a lot easier to write and make your book accessible to the general public but that doesn’t mean it is without its pitfalls. You may have spent months or even years writing your book, so, you have to do everything that is humanly possible to put it into front of the right people. If you are seriously considering publishing a book, you need to make sure you are not making a very common mistake.

Gone are the days when an author could sit back and relax on their creative laurels, feet up and just waiting for the royalties to roll on in. Nowadays, the responsibility for marketing lies solely on your shoulders. Scary? Well, yes but, you must plan out a professional plan of action if you wish to send a media shockwave out about your book launch. Too often, writers overlook this aspect of the publishing process.
