Oh good I have your attention. Writing isn’t just about slaving away over a keyboard until your masterpiece is done. It’s about advertising yourself and not just your work of art. We have to put ourselves out there so please can put a face to a name or just know your name. The world of words is vast and readers have plenty to chose from, so you have to stand out. Some are lucky like J K Rowling. But was it luck? It is said an author spends 10% writing and 90% getting noticed and I can well believe it. People like the familiar, the face of name that rings a bell. We have to become that name in order to get our books off the shelves and into the homes.
