…for good or ill, this ol’ scribbler appears to have developed a wee reputation over the past few years as being sumb’dy who’s managed to get the hang of the SOSYAL NETWURKS’ usage for an author… I’ll let others speak to the veracity or otherwise of that conjecture, but I certainly immersed myself in the philosophy of ‘getting yer WURK out there’ via the web channels… considering the Great God Amazon Kindle now boasts over 6 million titles (I’ll read that again, Mabel… 6 million titles), it’s therefore no surprise to me that gazillions of folks have never heard of my literary masterpieces… however, on the plus side, I know for certain that many thousands of LUVLY readers and quill-scraper pals are aware of them… compared to where that number would be if I had not started to ‘build the platform’ , and indeed continue to maintain and add to it, that’s exakk-ly many thousands more than if I hadn’t indulged the MEDYA elements… ‘so’, they ask, ‘are yeez into hundreds of SOSYAL NETWURKS then, Master Gallacher?’ … ‘decidedly NOT!’ is the robust response… each of we writers, self-published or ‘housed’, is obliged to be active in their own promotional and marketing activity, of which being ’present’ on Auntie Internet is a major part… but… and it’s an important ’but’… yeez don’t have to cover all the channels… we only have 24 hours in a day… the common sense approach is to select a mere handful that suit yer own particular style and and then like Julia Roberts’s character in ‘Pretty Woman’, WURK it baby! … my major outlets of choice are Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Goodreads, a few lesser tributaries, and of course this ‘ere blog, which ties them all together… after presenting on this stuff a coupla years ago at the Dubai Festival of Literature, several fellow Authors asked me to put this in a book… and I did… a short guide, SELF-PUBLISHING STEPS TO SUCCESSFUL SALES… yeez can have a look at it on these links :
