2 thoughts on “Author Platform Building

  1. I SO want to hear more about this. As an aspiring writer who is only about a quarter way through a first draft, I’d really like to know if there is a way to start building a platform now or if I need to wait until I have something publish ready. I’m looking forward to reading more!

  2. Hi Sherri,

    I’m sorry this has taken so long to reply to. Getting used to a self-hosted site. Anyway, thanks for your comment. To me, believe it or not, you’re already building your “platform.” Platform is another word for “reputation,” and I think that by being involved in your writing community, you’re already taking first steps. If you want to more actively pursue a great writing reputation, start by becoming involved, face-to-face, with your local writing groups, going to conferences, and building a great contact list. While you might not be “doing much” at the moment, those contacts will be more and more important as you move into your writing career.

    Thanks so much for your visit today. I hope to write up more posts on this subject as I work toward presenting at Colorado Gold in Westminster, CO this fall. Happy writing, my new friend.
