Author Toolbox Blog Hop – Branding Decisions

One thing that’s been on my mind for a while was about how best to develop and build my brand. And since this is the last #AuthorToolboxBlogHop for 2018, I thought I would share some of my ideas about it. I am going to range about a bit, focusing mainly on web/blog sites and social media but I do have some other thoughts beyond that.


New Story – War Stories

Earlier I realised two things.

I hadn’t done a new blog post in over a week.
I hadn’t posted any writing, besides a line or two in the answers to my monthly Twitter games, in a few months.
So I decided I would try to kill two birds with one stone, and give you War Stories.

September Games

This month’s games were #AuthorConfession, #AuthorWouldYou,  #TweepWriter plus all of the Truth questions and two-thirds of the Dares from #WIPTruthorDare.

Bubonicon 50 – Day Two

Two things always come into play on the Saturday. The first is how many additional books am I likely to buy from the dealer’s room? The second, and more difficult, is which discussions or panels am I going to prioritise over others? In the past I’ve dealt with this in a simple way, which am I likely to get the most benefit from? That might mean missing a reading or a Q&A but it’s the best measure I’ve come up with.

Bubonicon 50 – Day One

For those of you who follow me on any of the social media platforms that I’m a part of, you’ll know that last weekend I spent most of my time at the Bubonicon convention here in Albuquerque. I really enjoyed myself and as per previous years will be giving you a rundown of who I saw, what I heard and just generally, what went on.
