Hello writers and those of you who love books! Welcome to the Grassroots Writer’s Guild–a place where you can discover exciting new authors and books or simply imbibe inspiration and solace for your own writing endeavors. Please read our About GWG page to the right for more information on who we are and what we’re all about.
Feel free to comment on any and every page and post on this site, that’s what we’re here for–to provide a direct connection between writers and readers. GWG’s founding members, Connie Kirchberg and Julia Simpson, will post essays and various other dribble on this home page as they see fit. Topics will vary greatly, but always in some way, shape, or form, they WILL relate to the business of writing. You have our promise.
So, sit back, relax, and start clicking away on the links to the right. You’ll see that both Connie and Julia decided to implement a “get to know the writer” approach in their sales technique that includes personal experiences and family photos. They discuss the ideas behind their books and share their experiences regarding agents and traditional publishing. You may decide to go with a less intimate approach. The point is to figure out a marketing strategy that’s right for you and implement it. Remember, the person best equipped to sell your book(s) is the person who knows and cares the most about it. And that would be you.
