Welcome to The Author Platform Blog

Welcome to The Platform Blog, designed for authors to join us as we build up momentum during countdown to the publication of our book.

Tuesday, May 13, 2014: our official publication date (amazon.com taking pre-orders now)

Tuesday, March 25, 2014: The Platform Blog official start date. Please tune in to build up your own platform in parallel, as we move on the path leading up to publication and launch of our book. We look forward to hearing your comments about your progress.

What’s in it for authors? A free quiz to assess your platform, pointers to where you need build audience, a system to make it happen, and the results that follow when you build up an audience of interested readers. Free. Authors who use the 20 minutes over daily morning cup of coffee for creating platform are rewarded with better findability, interested audience who will buy your book, and networking that builds your author brand by teamwork, so we hope you join in over your morning coffee.

Authors who join us are not alone in building platform, and  yes, there are enough hours in the day. Platform points begin on The Platform Blog this week. And most importantly for some authors, we’ll show how to get a free cup of Starbucks coffee to enjoy while you’re building your author platform. Dark or medium roast, we want to hear about your platform progress.

Please use the Reply box during the countdown; tell us about coffee freebies in your area, and share your platform progress and questions. Our Reply box is huge only because it protects the site from spam, so thanks for your patience, and looking forward to hearing from folks as we head toward our book launch.
