Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer
Three quick things.
1. I’ll admit that I’m having a tough time focusing on anything “routine” for an extended period of time at the moment. To wit: I haven’t yet managed to listen to the entire #AmWriting podcast episode on “Book Launching Fun with #GoodreadsAmazonBookbub”—let alone apply the tips that it provides. But I’m impressed with what I’ve heard so far, and I hope to make use of the advice sooner rather than later. (At least some of the tips seem to be evergreen, not necessarily limited to the pre-launch phase for a single book.)
2. ICYMI: The June issue of The Practicing Writer went out to subscribers a few days ago. Along with its usual array of current fee-free and paying opportunities, this issue includes some tips for promoting online book events. If you find the newsletter useful, please share it with your writing networks and encourage others to subscribe.
3. A highlight from the past week: On Sunday, Birthright and I had the honor and pleasure of taking part in the first virtual author event presented by Literary Modiin. A recording is available below. (My own presentation begins around the 28:40 mark, but, especially having recently finished reading both of my co-presenters’ new books, I encourage you to watch the entire thing. Enjoy!)
