Hello everyone! Thank you for joining us this week on Method and Muse! In this episode, we discuss making your personal “brand” as an author. This has been a buzzword for awhile now, but it makes sense. After you’ve finished your masterpiece (or “first” masterpiece), you’re going to have to sell it, and yourself as an author, to the public. You want people to know what they’re going to get when they invest their money in your book, and ultimately, you.
Here at Method and Muse, we’re building a brand based on silliness, forgetting what we’re about to say, littering our podcast with F-bombs like a minefield, a genuine love for writing and a desire to help others achieve their goals. Your brand will be all about you and what you want the public to feel and know about you when they see your work. Will you be known for intricate plots? Will people know your work for its fantastic characters? Will readers expect to laugh out loud at the comic genius of your dialogue? The possibilities are endless and up to you.
There are a lot of things to consider when creating a personal brand. We’ll discuss many of these as well as things to be wary of. I was going to mention something else, but it seems to have slipped my mind. Oh well, tune in this week and maybe I’ll remember it somewhere amidst the expletives.
