So, yesterday I was thinking: If I want to get my name out there as a writer and really be successful with my books, the bottom line is that I need to create an audience. It's not really enough now adays to be a good writer and publish a good book. You have to know how to get that great product out and into the hands of your readers. And to do that, you need to create a network of consumers, or friends in FB speak, or followers in the twitter world.
That's when I decided my next step in this journey to "successful published author" needs to be to start to grow my audience. My blog is how I stay in touch with my growing fanbase and let you all know about my book news. And although there isn't a ton to write about just yet, I WILL be publishing books in the near future. And when I do (either via the traditional way or by publishing myself—I know how many of you have requested a copy of a few of my books already and I'm not planning to leave you out in the cold), I need to have a large enough audience willing to read my books to really have a fair chance of surviving this brutal world of book publishing.
So, as a favor to me, if you're on Facebook, please visit my new FB fan page and "like" me. I'll be putting all of my Book Slayer updates on there from now on and you can help me spread the word about my blog. And then, if you want to go even one step further (and I'd so appreciate it), go ahead and encourage others on your FB page to check out my site (http://brittanythebookslayer.blogspot.com) or "like" me on FB, too. I truly believe that together, we can get me published.
Thanks so much for your continued support!
