Hello wonderful ladies of Shewrites,
I am in the process of setting up a Wordpress site before I start querying agents for my book. I've peeked around on the web a bit and have some ideas of what to add, but wondered if anyone had some good suggestions for an unpublished author's site?
I'm planning the blog feed itself, an "About" section, and of course the regular FB and twitter connections as well as a contact section. Would it also be a good idea to have a page on the book I'm currently marketing? Perhaps a "book jacket" style blurb? (If so, would it be scandalous to have similar wording to what is in a query letter?) Finally, is a book teaser/excerpt for an unpublished book a bad plan? Does it destroy certain publication options?
Suggestions welcome! Thank you!
I've done it a million times! Well, maybe not a million, but several. I figure nobody's watching at that very second, or at least I hope not. But it happens. People are very forgiving when you're willing to be yourself.
Good to know and good point of view. I think I'd be more relaxed about it now; this was maybe my second post and everything felt very "important." We have one of those sensitive touch pads for a mouse -- sneaky little thing! It can be hard to control the arrow.
