Stern Rake Studio Fan Page

I just announced a "public opening" of the Stern Rake Studio fan page on Facebook.  By doing this, I'm hoping to increase awareness of my work. Ever since reading Christina Katz's book, Get Known Before the Book Deal, I've been slowly developing my platform as a wargame graphic novelist and YouTube movie producer.  However, it was reading a blog post by Kristen Lamb, author of We Are Not Alone: The Writer's Guide to Social Media, that inspired me to develop the Facebook fan page.

According to Ms. Lamb, once 25 or more people become fans, by clicking on the "like" button, then Facebook will recognize me as the sole proprietor of Stern Rake Studio.

So please feel free to log on to Facebook and become a fan today.

Links to platform and social network savvy authors:

The first time I heard the term "platform," or a writer's expertise, was at a workshop hosted by Karen Burns during last year's PNWA (Pacific Northwest Writers Association) Summer Conference.

The pages of my copy of Get Known Before the Book Deal, is predominantly yellow because of all highlighted passages.

At this time, I haven't gotten around to purchasing Kristen's book, but if her blog posts are any indicator of her writing, then I'm looking forward to buying and reading it.

Ha. I remember the time I first heard "platform" (in a publishing sense) too. It's an ominous word. Good luck with yours! Karen

Thank you Karen! Yeah, sometimes when I think of "platform," I think of "gallows." :)

Take care.
