The world has changed, and with it the writing life. In
addition to crafting a novel or non-fiction work, writers must now
consider a slew of "new media" promotion opportunities: blogs, social
networks, mini-feeds, and podcasts, to name just a few. Booklife
will provide you with the strategic and tactical intel to develop your
writing career and thrive in this new environment. It explores
questions such as How can authors use social media and the
internet? How does the new online paradigm affect authors, readers, and
the book industry? Tips of the trade culled from 25 years of experience as a writer, reviewer, editor, publisher, agent, and blogger are shared. Booklife also includes the feature 'How to Write a Novel in Two Months'.
Whether you're a beginning, intermediate, or advanced writer,
self-published, published in the independent press, or by large
commercial conglomerates, this book will be of value to you and help
you achieve your writing goals.
