What’s Blogging Got To Do With It? I'm Jennifer Perry, entertainment publicist and owner of Lone Wolf Communications, LLC. Every week I share all sorts of ways in which authors can promote their books and themselves.
The author’s platform helps them bond with their audience and build a relationship. Blogging is a strong way to do this for many reasons. Your readers enjoy feeling a connection with you and leaving comments for you. They also like knowing any updates on your publishing dates, television or radio appearances and live events where they can see you.
If you are identified strongly with a particular genre of literature the opportunity to connect on a grand scale with fans and other writers is out of this world.
It is a pleasure to have two special guests on this show. A woman who is a writer, editor, publisher, reader, and – yes, there’s more – blogger of The Horrifically Horrifying Horror Blog. Emma Audsley is also a reviewer for The British Fantasy Society.
Emma's colleague Justin Steele, writer and editor of The Arkham Digest, has frighteningly useful tips on blogging for authors. Justin also had this to share with listeners. "Thank you very much for listening! If you have a penchant for the dark, the unexplained, and the numinous, I invite you to join me over on my blog, The Arkham Digest, and help me explore the best that weird fiction has to offer."
This will be a great show, though I’m wondering if I should have some spooky sounds, screams, groans, or a bit of Bach’s toccata and fugue in Dm to help Emma feel at home.
