New Ventures

To be a writer today you have to have many strings to your bow. Not only do you have to be able to spin a good yarn that engages the reader but you have to be able to market that piece of work so it actually reaches the target audience. As I’ve mentioned on numerous occassions marketing is the most difficult aspect of being a writer. There are certain skills needed which I have had to learn or employ someone who does.

In this respect I have ventured forth into two areas of the marketing field that are completely new to me. One is book trailers and the other is video blogging, or vlogging. At the moment I have two book trailers out, the first was for The Satan Strain and the second is for The Blackstar Gambit.

I also have made my first vlog introducing myself and the three latest books. Hopefully the vlog will continue every week or so, maybe every month so that I can keep people updated with any news about the books and of course if you have any questions please leave me a comment below. You can see all three videos I mentioned over on my You Tube channel


About jandomagala

Having worked in the ceramic printing industry since leaving school in the early 70's I've had a passion for the written word. I started writing in the 80's and since discovering the self publishing world have finally seen the first part of my ambition come to fruition, my name in print. Now with the help of wordpress and other promotion tools I hope to see the second part of my ambition come true, to earn a living from writing.
