I’ve heard stories of the “platform”, seen some marketing questionnaires that might be included with a book contract (or even before a contract is given). Truth is, I can see why publishers are doing these things now: there’s almost no budget for marketing and for poetry, a lot of books get sold through connections…aka, friends!
So it is with special relish (and a bit of joking), that we are pleased to share that one of our authors now has an author website and twitter handle (though I promised she did not have to actually tweet!).
Check out Melinda Mueller’s new site to learn about all of her books and if you feel like tweeting her, find her at @melinda_mueller.
And yes, on my list for winter project is designing an “Author Intake” form. Really.
