Well, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the amount of interest generated both from this blog and from posting on a couple of forums. I’ve found three so far that have been helpful in networking:
My next couple of steps will be to write some brief classified ads and post them on Craigslist, USFreeAds, and ClickCity, among others.
Finally, I’ll start writing articles and then interviews for various article sites like Squidoo, among others.
I want to be very upfront about all of this. I am attempting to build an audience. Hopefully, some will want to buy the book (currently available through bookhabit, but I’m seeking a publishing house as well), and we’ll be able to go from there. The more people who know about any book I or anyone write, the more likely that book is to sell.
I’m confident additional opportunities to build a fiction platform will emerge as time goes on, but here’s where I’m at. Feel free to ask questions or comment on my strategy.
