A day in which you write something is a day well-spent


I read an interesting blog post the other day about how to best market yourself to the world and sell more books. The guy came up with the idea of “Author Flyers” in which the author would “sell” him/herself. Includes:

>Picture of Yourself and your book

>Short biography

>list of credentials (i.e. certificates, awards, degrees, notoriety)

>Book Blurb

>Genre that you write in

>Stylish theme (VERY IMPORTANT)

It seems very interesting, and I plan on making one myself. With these in hand, if you come across a potential buyer, publisher, or agent, you’ll have these handy with all the relevant information. They are especially useful if you are doing speaking events and want people to know who you are. You can mail them out to publishing companies and conventions.
