Author’s Platform

What is an Author’s Platform and How Do I Build One? by Alice Speilburg

This lecture, geared specifically toward non-fiction authors, will address strengthening your publishing platform, which shows a publisher that you are an acknowledged expert in the field your book covers. Alice will cover social media tips, audience expansion ideas for your blog, and other ways to connect with your reader community, and then how to build on that connection to be the go-to source for magazine articles, TV news, and other public media that address your topic. This information might be helpful to authors of fiction, but an author’s platform figures much more strongly in a publisher’s decision to publish books in non-fiction categories. LECTURE
