In case you didn’t already know, I’m co-writing the Marketing for Authors series with fellow indie author Bethany Atazadeh. We’ve both been working so hard on all the books in this series and it’s so exciting because we’re now able to start revealing things to you! For today, the reveal is the cover for the first book in the series: How Your Book Sells Itself. If you want to see the cover, you’re going to have to watch the video!Continue reading
BookCon 2018 was amazing! I meet up with the wonderful Brittany Wang and formed a team of five to help conquer BookCon and got in line for a LOT of signed books! I was also able to meet up for a few other wonderful writers: Kristen Martin, Meg LaTorre of iWriterly, Sophia Elaine Hanson and J. L. Willow, a debut teen author! Oh! I and did mention I surprised Jessi Elliot with a shout out from her favorite author, Jennifer L. Armentrout?
This year will be my second year attending BookCon and I’m so excited because last year I only went one day and this year I’ll be there for both days. That means more books and more fun! Last year I didn’t know what I was getting myself into but this year I’m ready and I’ve learned from my mistakes so I’m here with tips that I wish I had when I went to BookCon last year.
It took me about a month, but I finally got around to editing my collab video from the #AuthorTubeRetreat2018. For this video myself, Anna Vera, Kaila Walker and Natalia Leigh are all talking some of our favorite things we do to to help our balance our writing life with our personal life.
What do I even say? It’s hard to render a writer speechless but I don’t know how to sum up this past weekend with justice.
Let’s start with this: here’s my vlog!
I miss these girls so much already. Never in my life have I been surrounded by such like-minded people, people I was afraid to say goodbye to. All of us have so much ahead of us in our futures so be sure to subscribe to everyone’s channels and show the love!
There are many collabs coming so be on the lookout!
As many of you know, Kristen Martin hosted the first ever AuthorTube Retreat at her house! I cannot even put into words how amazing it was to spend the weekend with this amazing ladies because for the first time we all felt fully understood! We could talk about writing, publishing YouTube, anything! The weekend went by way too quickly, and there is a blog to come, but until then behold…BEAN BOOZELED!
So you wanna be an AuthorTuber. If you saw last week’s blog post, then you know I talked about why you should join AuthorTube. Since you now know why you should join the AuthorTube Community, it’s time to talk about what you need to do to grow a following. Being an author on YouTube is really fun, not to mention it’s a great way to find a community of people who will support you and your books, and inspire you to keep writing. Let’s jump into it!
Today we’ll be doing one really cute thing: making mini book art using book pages. Can’t get any better right?
Happy first day of December! I have to say, Christmas is one of my favorite holidays! To get into the Christmas spirit this year on AuthorTube I’ve enlisted the help of Jessi Elliott and Emily Bourne, fellow AuthorTuber’s, to re-create the AuthorTube Christmas tag! Last year Jessi created the tag and this year Emily and I worked with Jessi to create new questions and bring the tag back to life!
