As we go through this next year, marketing our books on a daily basis, I’m going to assume several things about you.
1. Because you are an author, you can write. So when I need you to write a quick article or do an exercise in creative writing, you’ll be up for the challenge.
2. You love to write and so not only can you write, but since you love to write, this will be fun. No big worries, I think there are only about 15 writing exercises, so it’s not like you’re going to have a whole second job here. In fact, this is supposed to be something you can get in the habit of doing every day, because it is easy!
3. You want to sell books or at a minimum, you want to get more readers. These exercises are about getting your book read. See prior blog post…
That being said, I’m going to give you your first writing exercise – but it isn’t due until 1/1/2013.
Assignment #1: Write a new blog post – about how your book helps/entertains your readership.
This implies that you already have your gmail account, and your account on blogger. If not, you have a few days to set it up.
Blog posts should be about the length of an article 3-5 paragraphs.
With this assignment, I want you to start connecting to your readership. This article should be all about them. Who they are and why your book helps/entertains them.
My example article will be posted on: “Angel On Board’s” blog.
