Social Media for the Writer
Before and after you publish you need to get your name out there. You need to get people excited about your book so they’ll buy it. Social media is a great way to do that but it can get confusing. Do you Tweet? Facebook? Pin things? Digg them?
Is That Hollywood Calling? – How Thinking Like a Screenwriter Can Improve Your Novel
Writing scripts and writing novels are two completely different things. Just because we can write books doesn’t mean we can write screenplays. Is That Hollywood Calling? is a quick and dirty month long course on the differences between writing books and writing scripts. If you want to unleash your inner screenwriter this is a great place to start as a primer. For novelists it covers how writing a screenplay can cause light bulb moments for some of those often quoted snippets of writing advice like show don’t tell and keep it active. It also covers how thinking like a screenwriter can help improve your novel writing.
Loglines – Just the facts, Ma’am
A good logline can make people sit up and take notice. Whether you write books or scripts the logline is an essential part of your marketing material. It can also help you stay on track. Just the facts, Ma’am is a two week workshop that covers what makes a good logline and how to use it to stay focused on the story.
Who Are You Again? Promo Before You Publish
Writers know they have to do promo once they sell the book. But what about the promo before you publish? Should you promote yourself if you don’t have a book to sell? How do you find readers who will stick with you until you do publish? Who are you again? will help you decide if and how much promo you should do before you publish.
