More online writing

I often look for resources for our authors so they may spread the word about their books. One online source is Freelance writing jobs at

There are plenty of articles to guide the new or even the seasoned writer. If you are an author, you need to get additional exposure and online writing is a great way to do it. I know I harp on this, but it's true. The bonus? Sometimes you'll even get paid for what you write.

Writing articles online

Writers want to gain a following for their books. The first thiing you can do, even if you don't know a lot of people, is to begin writing articles online in a topic that you enjoy.

There are a lot of sites from which to choose so make sure you look around. I chose because they had a category opening that made sense for me, mortgages, which fit with my financial and mortgage background. Once I wrote for them for a while, I applied with Yahoo!
Make sure you do not rely on the article writing site to get readership. Post a link (but don't spam) with a catchy title on Twitter, Facebook or IFogo! Each new reader is a potential sale for your books. Plus, you begin to meet new, interesting people.
