The Author’s On-Line Presence is a clear primer covering the topic of an author’s platform and how to use it in language that will have you feeling confident of your abilities. It will start you confidently on the road to finding readers for your work as well as confidently communicating with them.

As an author always seeking new information to make my platform better, The Author’s Platform has been a great help. It has been particularly helpful in demystifying opportunities like the Book Blog Tours and Goodreads applications.I am excited about pursuing both of those because I see the potential of increasing my presence in the marketplace. Barb Drozdowich has put together a useful guide for any author, new or established. Great job! Thank you.Tweed Scott
A great overview of the building blocks for your author platform. Drozdowich takes the time to simply explain the different areas authors should focus on. Highly recommended for new indie authors who are trying to figure out this whole marketing thing.BJ Knapp
