Build Your Author Marketing Plan

Today I have to share a blog post I came across all about building an author platform. I HAVE to. Anthony at Book Cover Cafe posted the best advice on building your author platform I have ever come across (and you know I come across a lot).

Included in Anthony's post is a marketing map. Make sure you go there today, click on the map for the bigger size pic and print it. You can even laminate it - I won't think you're odd. This post brainstorms every avenue you can promote your writing and how to go about it. It's gold. Go get it.

And tomorrow I'm off to Supernova! A huge pop-culture expo that will be filled with books and writers and other fun stuff. My girls are getting dressed up as book characters for the event - you can read their posts about it at Paper Dolls. I'm also attending a writer's workshop in the morning on writing a series. Of course I'll let you know how that goes.


  1. Sounds good! Will head over. Thanks for the links.

    Have a great weekend! :)

  2. Thanks for the link, I'm off to check it out. And wow, what a fun weekend you have planned!

  4. Yowza. That map looks complicated.

  5. More priceless writerly gold. Ta muchly Charmaine. There is a lot on my to get around to it list now!

  6. Thanks Charmaine for your kind words! It's fantastic to see people being inspired by the mindmap. It's something I would like to have come across when I first started years ago!

    Great website by the way. I like that you have your 'About me' box at the top of your sidebar where it needs to be. Excellent!

    Crush it this week everyone!
