Last week I was given the opportunity by Curiouser Editing (my soon to be copy-editors) to write a guest post for their blog. It had to relate to writing, editing or publishing – I chose to write a plea to the newly published author about marketing.

As an editor myself, I really do understand the excitement of getting that first novel out there, but once the family and friends have purchased, read (and hopefully reviewed) your book, you’re pretty much on your own. There are a LOT of books out there – like millions – so I decided to write this post from the point of view of a reader (and potential purchaser) who often finds books that blow me away, but with no means of following the author or receiving updates of new releases…

Here’s the post anyway: A Plea to the Newly Published Author: By Michelle Dunbar — Curiouser Editing.
