If you are not a writer trying to publish a book, it may not occur to you.
The first thing a publisher wants to know is, What is your platform? In other words, how many followers do you have on your blog or social media.
For those of you who do not know, I have recently finished a writing degree and am transitioning into a writing career, and I need to get my name out there.
So if you wouldn’t mind, I am asking you friends to 1) follow my blog by subscribing using the Subscribe menu 2) follow me on Twitter @JeffreyAMays 3) jeffreyallenmays on IG and 4) repost and retweet things of mine—when you feel you can; I’m not asking anyone to get creepy.
Yes, this is a completely self-serving request. “Wouldn’t we all like to be reposted and retweeted,” you may be thinking. “What makes you so special?”
If you do not want to, of course you do not have to. But I’m just asking my friends who are willing to help me get my name out there in this way.
