Peeps...in Kindergarten, I first learned to write using a fountain pen. Ink splotches, a sweet-looking pen, something called CURSIVE. How could I NOT become a writer?

I never decided to become one -- my brain kinda classified writing books as a necessity to life -- like breathing, eating, and sleeping.

Okay, on to the "official" about-me stuff...

Nadine Brandes is an adventurer, fusing authentic faith with bold imagination. She never received her Hogwarts letter, but rest assured she’s no Muggle (and would have been in Ravenclaw House, thank you very much.) This Harry Potter super-nerd has been known to eat an entire package of Oreos (family size) by herself, and watches Fiddler on the Roof at least once a year. She writes about brave living

Oh I definitely have plans for books after the Out of Time Series. :D
I have a fantasy series, a fantasy standalone, and an apocalyptic standalone. Not sure what order I'll write these in, but I'm very excited to bring them to the world! [big grin](less)

This is always my first piece of advice for anyone serious about writing. You will learn so much and the professionals can always teach you something. There isn't an author I know who didn't have his/her mind blown from their first conference. Sometimes it takes a week or two (or five or ten) of recovery after the first conference, but if you push through, your writing will be that much better!(less)

Welcome to post #2 in the Book Marketing series! Last month, I we concluded that the heart of marketing is tribe (aka: relationship.) So the “new name” of book marketing is… Tribe Building.



WHY TRIBE?

Here’s what Michael Hyatt has to say about marketing in his NY Times bestselling book, Platform:


Marketing is dead…in the world of social media, it has morphed. Dramatically. Tribe-building is the...

“You shouldn’t be placing hope in our lives, Parvin. That’s my point. I don’t know the answers of the future, but your confidence and hope need to be in God.”

“Don't strive to belong, Parvin. Your effort is much better placed elsewhere.”

I had this crazy idea, and I hope this is an okay place to share. Have you heard of those book subscription boxes, like Owl Crate? Well I had this idea to start making my own book boxes. They would be clean books for Christian teens, by authors like Stephanie Morrill, Nadine Brandes, and Lisa Tawn Bergren. A friend and I teamed up to do it and we're calling it WishLit. Do you think it would be a good idea? Would you be interested in it? Do you have any tips?

That's a great idea!
