Branding for Nonconformists

Can Instagram Selfies Help You Sell Books?

Connecting with readers by sharing snapshots from real life

Work hard and smart to take part and give back to the book-loving community before you even think about trying to sell your books…You’re just here to find your audience, and to deserve it.

And you’ll only find that genuine engaging audience when you allow yourself to become vulnerable. When you own your opinions. When you speak your mind while showing others that you care deeply about them and that you respect their opinions too.

[T]o me author branding means allowing your audience to get to know you better. Sharing with your readers not only your craft but the things that make you you. Your people will stay no matter if you like talking about ten different things. I think it has to do more with the way you deliver.

I took the screenshot on the left a few days later, hence the 113/115 discrepancy.

Authoress: LIFE WITHOUT ENVY (“a self-help book that’s actually helpful”) and assorted fantasy novels.
