A lot, even if it still gets damned with faint praise for its enterprise cloud services.

A good article on what AWS is all about. "... AWS's unique characteristics to deploy applications unimaginable for traditional IT infrastructures and processes. These applications run on hundreds or thousands of virtual machines ..."

I’ve just returned from the Romance Writers of America’s national conference. Change has been the word on our lips for at least a couple of years, but the swell was washing over every aspect of the conference this year."

Do the words "self-publishing" invoke fear in you? Do you think you must go to a large publishing house or you won't be taken seriously? Are you afraid to take the leap?

 

When you read about the buzz going on at the Romance Writers of America's national conference, I believe your fear could turn to downright giddiness. For the first time ever, editors and agents were wooing authors. The self-pub side of the BALLroom was jammed and buzzing with excitement. Romance is hot in the digital market.

 

Here's the rub: not many are making a ton of money with self-publishing--yet. There is still a bit of a steep learning curve to learning all about the finer aspects of formatting, uploading, and then the dreaded self-marketing. Can one person truly do it all?

 

Here are my thoughts on self-publishing: You can get the darn book written, published, and marketed much faster than waiting on somebody else to notice you and your work. You may find success with it, you may not, but you'll never find out unless you take the first step. Fear has kept many a fine writer in the closet. Feel the fear and do it anyway!

Finding and narrowing your target audience will help you to reach–and appeal to–more of the people that will ultimately buy your book.

Authors: this is an excellent article on targeting your ideal audience to have a greater appeal--before you write the book.

 

I especially liked the suggestion of naming your ideal reader, i.e., Jane or Joe Boomer, and creating a profile for them consisting of the Geographic, Demographic, Psychographic, and Behavioural. Actually do a write up of who they are, and what they are all about by answering these questions. If you are not sure how to find this information, the article also lays out some ways to accomplish this.

 

By narrowing down your target group, you are sementing your market into a smaller, distinct group of individuals. By knowing them intimately--what they like or don't like, you will be able to speak their language.

 

Read the entire article for all the steps you can take to find your readers, and make your sales go from weak to wow!

"Having a fun hobby you can turn to will spark your creativity and turn on your writer's brain."

Authors sometimes need to be reminded to put down that pen, get away from the computer, and just have some fun! Doing so may tap into a creative side of themselves they may not have known existed.

 

After enjoying a hobby totally unrelated to writing, I made a surprising discovery--tapping into a creative part of my brain unleashed a torrent of words that had been waiting to pour out.

 

Read the entire article for ideas and find a hobby, test out a creative spree yourself, and see if the words don't flow a little faster.
