Build Your Writer’s Platform in 2012!

Linda Joy Myers of NAMW.org had invited me to help writers define a platform.  “Making your name stand for something—to attract targeted consumerswho are likely to buy what you have to sell.” (page 1 of my workbook Build Your Writer’s Platform & Fanbase In 22 Days)

Tell us what you learned today at the tele-roundtable session.

You learned the definition of a writer’s platform.

You learned how and where to show off your name and y0ur themes. Next you’ll need a “home base” so that when your fans find you on the Internet and want to read more from you . . . how would they find you?  Your home base is your website / blog.  My workbook guides you, step by step, on how to get a free blog (no web-hosting fees) if your budget is zero.  Get your home base now.

Reach out, not stress out, when building your writer’s platform!”

Your platform is unique; there is only one YOU!

You deserve a brilliant writer’s life (wear your 2 hats: the hat that works on the craft of writing; the hat that builds your name to help your fans find you NOW)

Thank you, Linda Joy Myers and Everyone who participated today!

Sincerely,
Coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan
