In honour of The Duke’s arrival, I’ve had my website revamped (thanks to the great services of Angeloni Media). A website is an essential tool for a writer, but very few of us have the skills to produce a professional ‘face’ for our writing. In fact, I know the whole marketing element of being an author is one that most of us shy away from, me included, but that doesn’t help sell books, or enable those hard worked words will be read.
So the first lesson I’ve learnt on this road to self publishing is ‘presence’. To get yourself out there – and yes that means Facebook, Twitter, You Tube and all the other social media that is part of our daily life – you’ll be surprised how supportive people, and some you have never met, really are.
