Insecure Writer’s Support Group Day and Anthology!

Co-hosts today are Kristin Smith, Elsie, Suzanne Furness, and Fundy Blue! 

Today marks the one year anniversary since the IWSG site and Facebook group opened. We invite all IWSG members, Facebook members, and followers to contribute to The IWSG Guide to Publishing and Beyond, whether you are a writer on the journey or a published author. Post your contribution today or email your submission to the IWSG or me. Full details posted today at the IWSG site.
 
If you are posting for the anthology today be sure to include: title, topic (writing, publishing, or marketing), a one line bio (with your name, book(s), and blog), and state that you give us permission to use it. After you have posted, please add your link HERE.

and of course the original founder Alex J. Cavanaugh, for the one year anniversary and continued success of IWSG.

I have submitted an entry to the anthology as I am sure most of you have. My entry is approx 750 words and I have emailed it to Alex as directed above. But, I am posting a shorter version of the submission for this months IWSG. 

Hope you find a couple of helpful hints!

Cheers,

Indie Publishing and Marketing

My tips are divided into the five “E’s”
Enjoyable
Editing 
Easy
Endless 
Exposure
Enjoyable

The creative aspect of writing, is the most enjoyable part of creating a book. Letting the imagination flow and take you on unexpected journeys is a fantastic experience.  At this point, take time out to make contacts and blogger buddies, they will be very important when your work is done.

Editing

This stage can be tedious, but really is the most crucial. A well edited book, can make or break a story.

Easy

Publishing, Indie style is the easy step. 

Endless

Marketing, it never, never ends.

Platforms like Twitter and Facebook are essential to advertise and build an audience. Make sure you connect whatever platforms you use to your main blog. This saves you time in the long run with every blog post being uploaded automatically to the platform.

To use an old cliché: Make sure you do for others, what you expect others to do for you!
  

Exposure

Be sure to expose your writing across as many networks and platforms as you can manage. It is time consuming and hard work, but the rewards speak for themselves. You gain followers, friends and associates and hopefully sell books!
