A great way to build your audience before your book is published is to start sharing stories and drafts of your book ahead of time. It’s really never too early to start. One year, three years, five years…it simply doesn’t matter.
Social and beta publishing should be fun. It’s about:
- creating community around your interests and your work
- aligning yourself with other writers
- making friends and important connections
- obtaining feedback
- testing the market
In other words, this process should provide excitement and joy. If you don’t enjoy one outlet, find a platform and community you love.
