It’s an age-old question: how do you build a platform big enough so publishers take notice? This week we interview Dara Kurtz, author of one self-published book and one traditionally published book. She shares her considerable, deliberate efforts to build her online readership for her site, Crazy Perfect Life
, and translate fans of her website and Facebook group content into purchasers for her second book, I am My Mother’s Daughter
. Buckle up and dust off your spreadsheet skills, because this woman loves data.
: She’s re-reading her own book, which is helpful for doing media around publication, as well as The Untethered Soul
by Michael A. Singer
