Missed 2nd Saturday this month? #learnwithme video from @SylviaHubbard1 : Selling books from your website #authorgrowthhacks #booksellingtechniques #syltips

Authors should sell their stories on their website to engage with their readers, build trust, and reach a wider audience. By having a website, authors can give readers an insight into their story, their writing process, and what inspired them. They can also use the website to share exclusive content and updates, provide links to where their book can be purchased, and even promote their upcoming events. By establishing a platform to share their stories, authors can create a personal connection with their readers and build a community of loyal followers. Check out this video from one of our second Saturday meetups for more information on the process.

Enjoy. Share with others and subscribe for more news, updates and giveaways

Upcoming 10am 2nd Saturday Speaker /Workshop Series with #MotownWriters – subscribe for alerts #michlit #mittenlit

Why you should network and learn with other authors and writers

Networking with other writers is a great way to learn from their experiences, get advice on your own writing, and stay motivated. It can also help you make connections that can lead to new opportunities and collaborations. Networking with other writers can also help you stay up to date on the latest industry trends and techniques, and provide you with a support system if you ever feel stuck or overwhelmed. Finally, it can be a great way to make new friends in the writing community who share your interests and passions.

For the upcoming year, we’ve started to reach out to our member experts to bring in more knowledge to our community
