I have been reading on the internet lately about creating an author brand and growing readership.
You need to create a distinctive theme-tagline that draws your writings together under a single identity. You want one to capture your reader's imagination. Something different or noticeable so people will remember it.
You can put your tagline on your book covers, title pages of your works, in your Amazon descriptions, etc.
You get the point, eventually your name will be recognizable with your tagline.
Also you need to create an author biography to put inside all your books, even your eBooks. Always keep the bio the same.
You can read more about this over at this site. It is really interesting and something I think we as writers need to do.
Here is another site where it talks about this.
I have created a theme-tagline for me. Here it is: (I notice this doesn't come out right. My name, the words and my picture are supposed to be all on the same line.
Here is the bio I have created.
Janet remains a child at heart. Writing articles, poems, picture books and middle grade novels to touch the lives of children. She brings her thoughts, dreams and imagination to life – refusing to grow up. Her inner child flows onto the paper.
A mother of three grown boys, her and her husband live in picturesque West Virginia. They have a yard filled with apple trees, flowers, blackberry patches, blueberries, grapevines, birdhouses and bird feeders. When not outside enjoying nature, she sits at her desk and writes for children.
Any suggestions to make mine better?
What do you think about this idea?
Do you have one you put with all your writings?
