Platform Building Campaign for writers

Posted in:
Most of you know that both of my books are self-published, but a lot of people are amazed at how well they're doing.  I've heard the question, What's the secret? a few times and I never fail to refer them to my blog. I've worked hard on this blog, but more than that, I was able to connect to other blogs and bloggers through it. I'm taking this opportunity to build it even further through a campaign pioneered by a fellow writer.

Rachael Harrie is a blogger and aspiring author of YA Horror and she started the Writers' Platform-Building Campaigns as "a way to link writers, aspiring authors, beginner bloggers, industry people, and published authors together with the aim of helping to build our online platforms. The Campaigners are all people in a similar position, who genuinely want to pay it forward, make connections and friends within the writing community, and help build each others' online platforms while at the same time building theirs."

If you're interested, you can read about what's involved in being a Campaigner, and the idea behind the Campaigns. For my followers who are writers, it would be great if you can join in the campaign, because with these things, the more the merrier. I already follow and read the blogs of some other campaigners and I can assure you that they're all very helpful in sharing posts on how to write better, and also about querying, publishing and promoting. See you there.

  1. Good to see you're doing well with your books and more importantly sharing your success with others. I hope I would one day consider writing professionally and I'm sure I may learn a thing or two from you. Keep up the good job -:)

  5. Hi Myne, I linked over here from the Campaign. I am in the Adult-All Genres group. I'm so happy to hear that your two self-published novels are doing well. I self-published my first and am currently still trying to find the more traditional route for my second. Of course, if I can't get a bite that way, I'll go the SP route again. I'm so grateful for the community of writers here in the blogosphere, and I'm happy now to be meeting you!
