featured in writer's digest
I have been featured in Writer's Digest May issue for their IndieLab Author spotlight feature. For context Google just told me that Writer's Digest has a paid circulation of 60,000 subscribers and the online has 20 million pageviews/year in the US. So how did this happen? Through the power of social media. I shared my achievements in starting my own small press, Pishukin Press, on an Alliance of Independent Authors thread and that I had published 6 books in 2022, and that they were each in ebook, paperback, hardcover, large print, dyslexic font edition, and audiobooks narrated by AI and by performance artists. The editor of this column saw my post and contacted me to be featured. And now I have an amazing publicity opportunity and an achievement I can leverage. So don't believe anyone when they tell you social media is not worth it. It is. I love social media to engage with the writing community, to network and to learn. Have fun and just put yourself out there with joy. And who knows what will come back to you
