MEDIA KIT (PART 2 of Authors, if you want bloggers to promote your books...)

Authors, if you want bloggers to promote your books… (PART 1: HOW TO APPROACH A BLOGGER & WHAT TO DO AFTER A BLOGGER HAS AGREED TO PROMOTE YOUR WORK)

HOW TO APPROACH A BLOGGER & WHAT TO DO AFTER A BLOGGER HAS AGREED TO PROMOTE YOUR WORK (PART 1 of Authors, if you want bloggers to promote your books...)

Since I’ve never asked an author to promote me, I can’t give you more than basic advice on how to approach a blogger; however, since I do write promo posts, I can tell you what to do after a blogger has agreed to promote your work, as well as what materials and info you could prepare beforehand and send to bloggers who agree to give your work a shout-out Continue reading

100 Tuesday Tiny Writing Tips by Dilyana Kyoseva (CatMint5 on Wattpad) - A List

Last week I posted the hundredth tiny tip on my blog. It will be the last of a series that’s been going on for two years.

Does that mean there will be no more writing advice on my blog?

Of course not!

I’ll keep posting tips, just not in the TTWT format. The posts will be a bit longer and more detailed. But we are not saying goodbye to the shorties just yet. Today I’m posting a list of ALL one hundred Tuesday Tiny Writing Tips, sorted in categories so it will be easier for you to find the topics you need help with. The categories (in alphabetic order) are: Blogging, Characters – Names (tips only on naming your characters), Characters – Tips (tips on creating and developing characters; everything but naming them), Creativity/Productivity/Motivation (for the days you don’t know what to write about), Editing (editing and proofreading), Fans/Readers (how to connect to them, how to get feedback from them, what not to do to your community), General Writing Tips (tips that don’t fall into the other categories), Marketing, Titles, Wattpad (these might apply to other similar apps/websites). Some of the tips will only be present in one category and some will appear in several categories.

And now, for the list Continue reading
