After quite a bit of research into the matter I have decided to make some changes here on my blog. To throw out some credits, I took some advice from both Rachelle Gardner and the folks at Author Tech Tips. I've been following Rachelle at her blog for some time now and just love all the great advice she doles out. So if you are not following this wonderful literary agent, I suggest that you start, you won't regret it. Then Author Tech Tips is a site I have just recently been turned onto and again there is a tremendous amount of information there.
The main issue with my current blog is a similar error many authors make. Many of us omit the very reason we should be using the social media in the first place; to introduce or hype up our work in progress. The pitfall is that the author designs the website to be more about them and their life, which of course will not attract followers to well. Instead, it is suggested to make the blog or website more dynamic consisting of content honed more on the work rather than the author. Sure give the site some of "you," but also include info about your work. If you can, it would even be smart to have new content that will actually drive folks to come back. For example, create a side or back story to your novels and then present it in your blog in issues sent out weekly or some other time interval.
So with this in mind, I'll first roll an introduction to the world of Diar. This will let readers know a little bit more about the setting for the novels. I will also develop a small plot line for one of the more fun characters, Fardea Panthrex, and make it available to readers. So stay tuned.
