How connected are you? As a writer do you believe you must be connected to be successful? I do.
There are three main places that I believe you must be present to be considered connected.
Blog or Website
I've been told that even though I don't have a website that I need to purchase your name as a domain, and to start blogging. It's a good way to reach out to those you wouldn't be able to otherwise.
You should have a fan page for you as an author and if you want, have a personal page.
You must be on twitter and following people, tweeting and gaining followers of your own.
Word of warning though: If you are only ever posting quotes or talking about your own book(s) you will not have a large following and people may loose interest. Getting others to talk about your book is the idea, and you talk about theirs. Be you and be personable. :) GOOD LUCK!
So what other ways have you heard that you should be connected?
