Local author Loreen Niewenhuis advises:
“The set of tools we writers use within the creative bubble are completely different from those needed to promote the work when it goes out into the world. After signing my first book contract, that wonderful “Yay!” moment quickly evolved into “What happens now? How will people hear about the book?”
“While the creative process is inherently rewarding, the process of getting published and building a platform is a whole lot of work that has to pay off in a different way: people have to connect with your work.”
Loreen says that Authors Publish Magazine has some good resources for writers.
