I am speaking at the Menlo Park Silicon Valley Pad on Wednesday about the techniques that I’ve learned during the past few months.

Authors struggle occasionally with the business of being an author. Most artists in fact struggle with the strategies of business. I break the techniques down to simple processes that can be accomplished within a few hours a month so that authors are able to concentrate on the area they are most passionate about, writing.

Blogging is one of the most helpful methods of getting your name out into the world. No matter how great your writing is, if no one reads it, it hasn’t made an impression. And most authors write to make an impression or inspire others in some manner or other.

Take the time to create a blog and learn to use the tools to generate more visibility for your writing and your books.

You can download the DVD movie at my blog site and if you’re available on Wednesday, come out and get the information first hand.

It is important to blog about your book when you first begin to write about your book in your blog when you first start writing you book outline.

You want to start attracting an audience. Those who will follow your story. You can write about the process of writing. Your emotional challenges. The struggles you might face in knowing which direction to go with your writing.

You have a chance to reveal your personality on your blog and build up a bit of anticipation for the release of your book. This is a great opportunity for you to engage your new fans.

The will want to know about why you are writing the book, how much time you spend writing, where you get your inspiration and what made you decide to write you book on your particular topic.

There are no rules about the frequency you should write, I typically write once a week or every two weeks, it depends on the blog.

But get the blog started and start building your following.
