Building Your Career as a Writer (Infographic)
Being a successful writer is about more than writing books. It’s about promoting yourself, standing out from the crowd, and ultimately bringing together a following of like-minded fans who wait with bated breath for your next release.
A great way to keep fans coming in between books is to start a writing blog. It may seem counter intuitive to write while you're writing, but it will go a long way towards reminding fans that you’re working hard to bring them the next story that will capture their attention.
Even if you only publish a real post every once and a while, it will give your fans the update they so desperately need and want. Start by creating a blog to pitch ideas to your readers and keep them updated on your progress.
