You’ve Been Searched!
Think about that for a moment. Who in the world would Search you? Why?
- You sent in a query somewhere.
- You self published and suddenly have good numbers.
In other words, there might be people out there in the literary/publishing world looking for YOUR NAME. And why do they do this?
Straight Talk With Ronovan: The Search is On
Writing a great book will not always get you published or make you the success you want to be, whatever success that is. Either traditional or self published it doesn’t matter, because people are going to look for information about you.
I Search for you. Yes, when I do interviews, book reviews, anything I do about an Author, I Search. Why do I Search? Why do Agents Search? Why do Publishers Search?
Personally I have a list of names that I want to ask to interview, but have to wait until the ones I have get caught up, or better yet . . . they ask me. You ask me and you are legit, 99 times out of 100, you get an interview.
But why do we Search?
We Search to see a few things;
- What is your web presence
- Do you have a web presence
- What publicity is there out there about you
- What work of yours is available to see, and
- What’s your reputation
Why do we want to know these things?
- How marketable are you, and
- How much marketing capability do you have in place of your own
- And are you who you say you are
Yeah, I know, you dream of that big signing and everything gets taken care of for you. Sorry darling, that’s a rarity. It’s kind of like a rock band; the money is in the tours and the t-shirts not the albums.
Same for the Author, everyone wants you to sell yourself for them. You are the return of the original rock star, the author. You could sign with anyone but you have to promote yourself.
In days to come I will be putting out articles about how to get that network in motion NOW, before you’ve finished your first draft, your first chapter or even knew you were going to write a book. Start today setting up a network for whatever you want to do in the future, even if it is something as simple as setting up Twitter and gaining Followers. Do it now.
Read what I have for you or not, it will be coming to help you. Trust me, as a writer myself, I hate the idea of having to take time to do self promotion, but by doing a little at a time now, it sure saves a lot of time later.
