It’s hot here in Texas. Triple digit hot. We were blessed to be able to enjoy a few days of afternoon rain showers earlier in the month, but they have parted. And with the heat, the Sarahan dust has returned. It’s the dog days of summer.
I’ve heard about the dog days since I was a child, but I never knew how the term came about until recently. Historically, the dog days began with the rising of the star, Sirius. Greek and Roman Mythology associated the star with heat, drought, sudden thunderstorms, lethargy, fever, bad luck, and mad dogs. By the way, Sirius is known as the Dog Star. In modern times, dog days are the hotest and most unconfortable part of summer in the northern hemisphere.
And now that you’ve had a little history lesson, it’s time for this week’s writing links.
Happy Monday, SEers! It’s a new week and a new subject. Lately, friends, family, and I have been discussing social media. Even co-workers. I’ve come to realize many people have a love/hate relationship with social media, or at least some of the platforms, and the bulk of activity that takes place there.
I’m not here to debate the merits of social media, rather to offer some suggestions on how to best use it as an author. As writers, we need to have a social media presence. The world exists online, therefore it’s a necessity we’re there too. Obviously, there are tons of social media outlets available, but when does your message become diluted?
In the world of advertising—regardless the nature of your product or service—the goal is to achieve Top of Mind Awareness. TOMA is the golden standard everyone hopes to attain.
If I say “dandruff shampoo” you’ll probably think…
Hi, everyone. As writers, we need to build our list of followers. And I have to admit, this is one of the hardest things for me to do. Not because I don’t enjoy the interaction with readers, but self-promotion just isn’t me. However, promoting our work in this day and age is a necessity.
It’s my time to post at Story Empire today where I talk about this subject, using an example from one of my favorite movies. (Hint, it involves baseball.) So why not hop over to SE now?
I’ve often said it’s easier to write a 90,000-word novel than it is to write a bio or book blurb. And it’s true. Writing an author bio can be an excruciating task (at least for me). I’ve written at least a dozen, none of which I’ve been entirely satisfied with.
Author Staci Troilo has the helm at Story Empire today, writing about, you guessed it, author bios. So why not hop on over and take a look?
