Thank you, Linda Joy Myers, for being a magnificent resource center for memoir writers!

I created this post just for you–members of NAMW.  After the June 18, 2010 Members-Only Teleseminar, let me know what steps you’ll take to further build your name to attract more fans (before or after publication). More fans lead to bigger platform/fame . . . which attracts agents / acquisition editors & publishers / advocates /endorsers / media attention . . . which leads to even more fans . . .

Remember to click “submit comment” after you have composed yours. When I receive your comment, I will add your name to this post and “tag” you (you’ll know what this means after the teleseminar).

“USE WHAT YOU KNOW TO BUILD FAME:  Fun & Simple Steps for Memoir Writers”

  • Understand the need to build one’s name/fame in today’s publishing arena.
  • Identify your advocates, endorsers and fans.
  • Gain recognition through your words and your community.

How do you thrive in the fiercely competitive industry?  You hold the power to beat the game.

Sincerely,

Writing Career Coach Teresa LeYung Ryan

Staci Motherwell, the Vice President of Marketing & Business Development at NAMW, asked me to provide a title and description of my talk.

In response to Ms. Motherwell’s request to provide a list of 3-5 talking points that I plan to discuss with Linda Joy Myers during the NAMW Members-Only teleseminar:

  • Why do memoir writers have to be concerned with building name/fame?
  • How does a writer identify advocates, endorsers and fans?
  • Would you like to know more about gaining recognition through your words and community?
