This week’s blog is specifically for you writers out there. The masterful Kristine Kathryn Rusch is the creative source behind two projects that launched last week to help writers improve their business and craft.

First up is Creating Your Author Brand, Kris’ latest entry in the WMG Writer’s Guide series.

Here’s the synopsis:

Getting a book into readers’ hands means achieving that modern marketing buzzword: discoverability. And the simplest way to gain that reader recognition? Branding.

Branding helps readers find an author’s work. But many authors fail to grasp the concept of creating an effective author brand. Now, New York Times bestselling author and renowned business blogger Kristine Kathryn Rusch expertly tackles the topic in this latest WMG Writer’s Guide.

In this guide, Rusch teaches the basic concepts of branding and helps authors convert those concepts into useful action to individually brand themselves to maximize reader recognition.

And I’ve got more good news: for a limited time you can get Creating Your Author Brand (plus nine other useful tools to improve your writing business) as part of The Write Stuff 2018 Bundle, curated by Kris herself.

WMG has two books and a lecture in this information-packed Storybundle.
