The First Day of the Rest of My Life

As some of you know already, I’m currently on tenterhooks. My New Year’s Resolution this year was to quit my job. And I did it. I’m going it alone as of February 1st!

For part of the time I’ll be writing both fiction and non-fiction. So keep your eye out for new releases – some of the first being The Great Outdoors Volume 2 and I Kissed A Girl: A Virgin Lesbian Anthology Volume 2.

For the rest of the time I will be doing something else I’m good at. For the past four and a half years my day job has been PR & Marketing. So I decided to use that expertise by running my own business – albeit the only employee will be yours truly. I’ve labelled my business Writer Marketing, as most of my clients will be writers, but that doesn’t mean that I won’t work for people that aren’t writers.

Some of this will be creating websites; as you can see from this portfolio I’ve already got a few under my belt! Also, I’ll be doing PR for new releases. This will involve getting reviews, new release coverage, guest blog spots and so on to promote the authors in question and their work. I’m also available to help out with more marketing based stuff, including writing blurbs, social networking and the like. So I’m a bit of a Jill-of-all-trades – within PR & Marketing, at any rate!

So check out the Writer Marketing website, which goes into more detail. And if you think there’s anything I can help you out with, please give me a shout. I’ll answer any queries I can. Feel free to pass this information to anyone you think will find it useful.

Wish me luck!
