Boy have I been busy! After reading a series of posts at Life in the Realm of Fantasy relating to branding yourself (No, not with a hot iron!), I have been setting up a social media footprint for my writing self. I now have an author Facebook page, a twitter account, a LinkedIn author profile, and About.Me page and soon will be out on Pinterest. Woof! My fingers are tired just thinking about it.
It appears, at least on the surface for now, that they are all linked together and anyone who would like the dubious honor of reading what I have to offer, can find me in any number of ways. Actually, if you following the instructions in Connie’s posts, it’s pretty easy to set up.
All of these sites require an author’s bio. Wanting to be as professional as possible, I did some research into how to write an appropriate bio. First let me say there are several kinds of bios. Mostly defined by that pesky word count. there is the 50 word, 100 word, and the most important 250 word bio. This last one is the one you will base the back inside cover of your book with. Kind of important, huh? So, I went to work and polished up a 250 word bio, updated my “About page” on this blog, and set up the aforementioned sites.
Lastly, I spent a little time rearranging some pages and links. I hope it will make finding some of the material easier to find. There will be a couple of new categories coming soon, but it’s a surprise.
Stay tuned as Actress and the Warlock Part VI will be posted soon, as well as, the next installment of What’s in Character.
