Recently, I hosted a question and answer session via Facebook this past week in efforts to help business owners who are looking to expand their business by writing and also aspiring authors. From that session, I was asked several questions but I wanted to help you with the questions that I think would help you out the most when it comes to your writing.
I wanted to post the questions first then go back and answer them. You also have the ability to watch the online video as well.
Question One: How do you protect your writing from people who may steal your writing while you’re trying to promote your writing by using social media?
The only way to share your writing on social media SAFELY is to make sure that you PROTECT your writing. They only way to protect your writing effectively is to COPYRIGHT your work. You do this by going to copyright.gov. On their website, you will get all of the details. You can also call them, in order to get step by step instructions on how to copyright your writing.
If you’re not able to afford the copyrighting process as of yet, you can also use apps such as Over, Canva or Mojo to share your writing. Using these types of apps will make it a little harder for plagiarism.
Question Two: Do you always need to use an expensive editor and how to find an amazing editor?
Let me first answer the question of where to find an amazing editor?
You’re able to find editors on LinkedIn, Facebook writing groups and you can also find them on Fiverr. Prices will vary for each editor. Please use your better judgment when looking for editors because the worst feeling is paying someone and you find out after the fact that they aren’t worth the horse they rode in on.
Question Three: Should I invest time into creating EBOOKS? Whether you’re contemplating completing an E-book or regular book, you’re still on the right track. Keep in mind that regardless of the type of book you publish, you are spreading your knowledge or your creativity. If that doesn’t promote you to write let me share this number with you. Right now on Amazon, there are over 6 million EBOOKS, keep in mind that this number doesn’t include either audiobooks or hardback books.
