As an independent / self-published author, I know how hard it is to connect with (or even find) your audience without spending your entire savings (if of course you are lucky enough to have one). As a part of my new business plan, I want to help and inspire people (this will probably become a topic of the Becoming a Writer series).
Lately, I have been trying to develop three words that describe my brand. (Thanks Z.R. Southcombe for the idea!) I have settled on Create, Inspire, and Assist. The best way I can think of to help other writers (and other creatives), besides beta reading and encouraging them to start and continue their journeys, is to feature them on my blog once a week.
The Spotlight articles can be anything. Some of the ideas I envision are guest posts, the creative talking about their work, showcasing artworks, adding links to music, interviews, and everything in between. I am looking forward to how this idea will evolve over time. You don’t have to be a published, just someone who is creating.
If you are interested in participating in the Saturday Spotlight posts email me with the subject Saturday Spotlight (something similar) at firstname.lastname@example.org
Look forward to learning about you and featuring you here on this blog!
