How to Build Your Author Platform

If you don't know it already, marketing and actually selling your book is that hardest pat of all, because this is where you face the competition. It should not be contentious competition, because most authors are only too happy to help other authors and there are hundreds of web sites and groups that attest to that, but still, when all is said and done, it is done to you and no-one else to sell your books, if you do not have a traditional publisher or agent.

There are many tools you can use but ultimately they are all bolt-on's to your author platform. Your author platform should be the base from where you foray out on publicising missions and to where people come to find out more about you and your work. it's a bit like an oil rig in the swirling sea of the Internet with all your publicity tools hanging off it.

The first thing to note is that you cannot start building your platform early enough. As soon as you decide to write a book is not too soon, neither is before the thought even enters your head, because you can always use it for publicising some other venture, for writing and selling a book is just a business and the principles are the same.

You get something that is of saleable quality, gain a reputation, find people who like and want that sort of thing and sell it to them. Your author platform will help you build that reputation and shine like a beacon, a landing light on your helipad, if you like, for those who want to find you or someone like you.
