So last month I got word that I got won Second Runner Up Impact Writer in
2014 Indie Best Writer Contest.
It was an exciting time as we used the latest social media outlets like Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and telephone conference calls to read our works and market our books. This contest was unprecedented as it used voting, video, and social media to help boost all of the indie authors into new heights.
It was a great experience for this sometimes reserved author. I had to be aggressive in getting votes by handing out a index card size flyer to church members, business acquaintances, friends and family.
What amazes me is the time it takes to do this. Todays new authors – especially self-published ones need a certain set of skills. Time Management and focus being the biggest. It’s not just about writing ; it much more.
