Katherine’s Question or Topic
Katherine loves writing novels. She wants to know what advice Gary would give to fiction writers like her on the internet especially on how to be able to sell her works.
Gary’s Story and Advices
Katherine already knows the tactical knowledge on how she can be able to sell her book which is to go directly to consumers via Wattpad and Goodreads. However, Gary said that it will only give her a little bit of action.
What Gary wants Katherine to do is to have people be aware and care about the characters of her book first in order for selling to be easier. She can team up with a designer or illustrator or if she can’t, she can just create stick figures then start an Instagram and Tiktok account of one of the characters of her book and build the character’s profile. She should put out micro little writings about the character’s story every day during the year she is writing the book so when the book comes out, the people will be excited to know the whole story.
