Rowling And EL James: 3 Lessons For Aspiring Authors #dontstop #marketthatbitch #jkrowling #eljames

While on the hunt to publish one of my popular stories, I learned about the twitter community of writers and how to create an awesome book cover.
(Look below for the hashtags I used for visibility)
I also had to speak with several people for proofreading and so on.

I am quite fascinated by the whole process, and learned a lot about marketing and style. It’s awesome!

That said, my 2 cents to anyone wanting to get published as I noticed from the most publicized giants in the writing world (and I mean they’re household names).

1. Your writing is fine and needs some marketing to get it out there. Learn from E.L. James.. people seem to be OK with crap written descriptions. That author was a celebrity in the end!

2. If poor ye olde Rowling could do it, you can do it too. Trust the gut and nothing else.

3. Feedback from honest people is the only way you’ll find out if your words are worth making public and sell-able.

After all the crazy typing and ‘wow” moments don’t stop, you need to find out if you can impact on someone’s entertainment time with a good read.

Actually come to think of it Sophie Kinsella is also a great example of “just going with it”.

Cafe culture, busy business lifeand merging things together is just part of the act.

Hashtag life:
Bear in mind it’s about giveaways, storytelling, marketing, networking with editors, bookstagrammers and authors. And about your own lifestyle !
