This week only, I’m the FEATURED AUTHOR for the Romance Writer’s United Organization. Do me the honor and check it out: http://rwunited.freehostia.com/index.html I’m so excited! >Jo-Anne is do’n the happy dance<
Welcome to my blog. I’m thrilled you have arrived… >waving and smiling<
“Conquer All Obstacles” is the theme–my message in each post.
Writing under a variety of categories: (‘Learning the Craft of Writing’, ‘Marketing and Promoting’, ‘Goals and Expectations’, ‘Revising’), there are patterns and directions in each post. You will gain a sense of strength and knowledge through many interesting topics.
Like a coach, I want my readers to feel they can trust me. We are on the same team. We have a common goal: to win. I’m here to encourage you; to mold you into stronger players. I will supply the information so you can relate, learn, and have the passion to pursue new and challenging avenues.
A blog is a marketing tool, essential for the writer even before the book is published. We, as writers and readers, are wise. We understand the value of money and time. You’re not going to waste your investments on something you know little or nothing about. This is why it is so important for a writer to build a platform and establish a relationship with their audience. Only when the reader gains knowledge and a sense of worth, will they invest their time and money.
Building this relationship between the writer and reader must occur before the book is published. It takes time to build mutual trust and is necessary for both the reader and writer so they can play together on the same team. If the writer waits until their book hits the shelves, it will be too late.
Feel free to post comments. I’d love to hear from you–communication is an essential component on any winning team or in any successful relationship.
