What’s this about?

What’s an author platform? There are lots of definitions, and mine is that it’s the author things that’s not the words you put in your book.

Your author platform is the solid basis that allows you to reach higher. Reach more readers and reach further for sales and loyalty from the readers you already have. A platform isn’t spending loads of money. It’s using free tools and selected low-cost tools to ensure you can entice new readers and retain existing readers.
