Fiction Writers and Platform
I’m blogging at Books & Such today. Here’s a snippet:
Every time I blog about platform or social media, the vocal response in the comments reminds me that it’s a difficult subject for many authors. Everyone wonders how and when to build a platform, and many writers aren’t enthusiastic about it.
There are two things I’m constantly stressing to authors:
(1) Building a platform is important.
(2) Mastering the craft of writing is crucial.
For unpublished fiction writers, these two things are not equal.
