Third Writer's Platform-Building Campaign

All the time I hear how you need to build your platform before you get a book deal. You need to be on the web, on Twitter, on Facebook. Christina Katz has a book called Get Known Before the Book Deal. But I was still like....how? I blog. I try. But I'm not breaking through.


This is the greatest thing! I've just found a blogger who links other bloggers to help get our names out there and to network with other authors! It's fantastic, I've just signed up. If you want to know more about the Campaign, click here. 

But hurry because you only have until August 31st to sign up!

"I blog. I try. But I'm not breaking through." Yes indeed. I hear you so well. I, too, have hopes that this campaign will help. It's going to be fun, too! Looking forward to getting to know you better as the campaign progresses.

P.S. not sure how to follow your blog, as I don't seem to be able to follow just by using the follow link up at the top of the blogger screen.

Hi Cortney! I love to find other moms who are writers. It's hard to do when you've got little ones..and you're campaigning instead of writing, but still. Good to meet a fellow mom writer. Good luck with the agents! How exciting!

Rachel said...

Hello! I'm a fellow writer, campaigner, and beginner blogger! Yeah, getting started out blogging was a pretty slow business, but don't worry, cus your numbers will rise by A LOT due the campaign!

Good luck with your book!! :D

Hello, fellow campaigner! I'm not in your group (but I am a YA author), but I still wanted to check out your blog and say, "HI!" :)

Deana said...

I'm in the campaign too! Hi! It is funny you mentioned this book because it was this book that had me on the search for some cool bloggers months ago and that is when I found Rach's blog.

Cortney said...

Hey Everybody, thanks for commenting and following my blog! Sorry it's been a few days, I've been trying to reply and comment on your blogs, and if I haven't yet, it's because my browser wouldn't let me. But I finally got it figured out, so thanks, all!

Carla, thanks for reading my stuff, I think it's pretty fun too.

Sarah, yay for mommy writers! It's a tough job, but I love it!

Abby, your Kurious Kids Fest is on my To Do list. It looks very fun.
