Build Your Author Platform:
How to boost your brand and grow your fan base

If you want to give your writing the best chance for success, you need to build your author platform. And that starts well before you even finish writing your novel.

“Right now? Before I’ve even finished my novel?”

Yes, right now – no matter what stage of the publishing process you’re up to. The sooner you get started, the better. A strong author platform requires time in the game as much as time spent on it.

We can hear you say: “Can’t I just write a great novel?”

While you do need to write a great book, you also need to bear in mind that there is one new book being added to Amazon every five minutes these days.

So simply writing a great book is not enough. Which is why you need an author platform.

Where do you start? Right here, with this course. You’ll follow a step-by-step guide on what you need to do to build a strong author platform as a fiction author.

You’ll discover:

  • the foundations that you need to put in place to grow your profile as a writer
  • the exact steps you need to take to get more readers
  • how to choose the right social media platforms for you and what to say when you get there
  • tips on how to take your platform offline and into the real world (speaking, festivals, book clubs)
  • how to create an engaged community that will help you to spread the word about your book both online and offline.

You write the great novel – we’ll help you take care of the rest.

Note: This course is suitable for fiction and memoir authors. It is not designed for authors of non-fiction such as business books.
