So here’s my new site! If it looks extremely standardized, that’s because it completely is. Hopefully there will be bigger and better things in the future, but for now I had exactly $26 set aside for marketing myself, and I just blew it all.
BUT, I do plan to be making good use of this over the next few months. I’ve got big plans for the blog part of this page, which I hope to post to weekly (at least, in this stage). Most of the early posts are going to be background, but I actually do have fun stuff to talk about, notably the publication of my first book, courtesy of the fine folks over at ROC. It’s scheduled for May 2013, so I’ll have good stuff to post about, from the basics like how I got an agent, how the manuscript was bought (because when I was working on those things, I spent far too much time scouring the internet, hoping that I would find directions for that “secret handshake” that I was partially convinced was what I really needed), plus the process of what getting a book published is like. I’m currently elbow-deep in the guts of Book Two at the moment, so I might talk about that a little.
Other stuff that I plan to do – FAQs are important, there’s an About section to fill up, plus the critical Contact portion. The Fortitude Scott portion is set aside for specific book stuff, which I’m sure I’ll fill up more once I have marketing info. I may do a Links section eventually, but that would probably just devolve into a long list of authors who I have a writer’s crush on. It would be nice to figure out how to put up a Forum section, but that can wait until I have, you know, people reading this other than my agent.
