…Authors, Scribblers, Quill-Scrapers of whatever discipline… whether yeez write as a professional pursuit, a recreational activity, or a playing-at-it-to-see-what-happens pastime, if yeez expect to be successfully and widely read by others there’s the wee issue of ‘being present’… I bring this up now as we run into the supposed ‘down time’ of Christmas and the New Year… SOSYAL MEDYA presence doesn’t take time off… there are no vacations or holiday breaks in being an Author… ergo (fancy WURD for ‘therefore’, Mabel), ergo, there are equally no downtime passages in yer turning up and showing yerselves in yer SOSYAL NETWURKS of choice… elsewhere in my SELF-PUBLISHING STEPS TO SUCCESSFUL SALES (wee commercial plug there—yeez may have noticed) I’ve shared the things I have consistently done ever since becoming the victim of the literary equivalent of being shanghaied several years ago… aware of the need constantly to be massaging yer communications channels in a non-spamming way… the old adage tells yeez, ‘mind share begets heart share begets wallet share’… but more importantly, name-recognition and ‘Author Awareness’ goes a long way to helping yer readers keep in touch with yerself as the Author, not the other way around… regular postings on yer blogs, affirmation tweets to scribbler pals, supportive commentary on the Facebook walls of friends… it’s all part and parcel of it… ‘coz if yeez feel like popping off for a week or two at this time of year, what’s to stop that spilling over into the rest of the year?… a slippery slope in my not-so-‘umble opinion… I LUV my WURK… and there’s no way I’ll be seduced into sloping off the job, slouching at the Mac, swinging the pencil lead in these next few weeks… and I’m certain many of yeez Lads and Lassies of Blog Land will be right here with me… the wee guide is clickable below:
