The 5-Figure Author Challenge, hosted by international bestselling and multi-award-winning author Alinka Rutkowska, begins this Wednesday, March 15, 2017:

As Albert Einstein said, "No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it".

In order to move forward, you need to find ways to get a different perspective – where you can see things in a different light.

And that can be (really) hard to do on your own.

So, I’m inviting you to this unique, 5 day “mastermind”, where an elite line-up of writers and influencers in the publishing world are coming together to share their views and wisdom on writing, marketing and selling books.

Which will shift your thinking and help catapult you to the next level in your author business.

And yep, this is a free, learn-from-the-comfort-of-your-own-home-pants-are-optional online event. ;-)

Join here >> and I'll "see" you there!

The visual trend in marketing is inescapable.

Short attention spans combined with an unparalleled surge of information (and distraction) requires a medium that can convey a message, a story, your entire essence, all at once.

And if a picture is worth a thousand words…

A strong visual strategy is an essential part of developing a powerful and successful author brand.

The right visuals will help you communicate ideas that get remembered, boost interaction with your growing fanbase, help tell your brand story, and make it much easier for readers to like, share and respond to your work.

If you are not yet focusing on visual content in your book marketing and platform building strategy, it’s time to get started.

In this post, not only will you learn how to create essential brand graphics, but you will get key tips on how to implement them, the elements they should include to be effective, and the best places to get free and paid resources to enhance your visual strategy.

In order to uncover the disconnect between what’s required to build a significant platform, and the rather dismal results that many authors are experiencing from their efforts, more information is necessary.
