Kimberley Grabas presents 101 Quick Actions You Can Take Today to Build the Writer Platform of Your Dreams posted at Your Writer Platform, saying, “What does it really take to build a writer or author platform? Money? Connections? An intimate knowledge of vampires, wizardry or erotic romance? Actually, the most important aspect to building an author platform is understanding that it’s about engagement; about connecting and interacting with people who are aligned with your message and affected by your story. Your platform is a web of intertwined beliefs, values, emotions, thoughts, stories, images and ideas that stem from your own core philosophy and are ultimately shared by your fans. The tricky part is finding ways to effectively share your message with an audience that is yet unknown to you, and you to them. Establishing and maintaining a link to your potential ‘tribe’ is both the challenge and the reward of building your writer platform.”
