Wouldn’t it be great if there was a magic potion you could drink, a stunt you could perform or even a test you could take that would automagically take you from obscurity to popularity in one painless step?
Wouldn’t it be even better if someone would just hand you the keys to the perfect Writer Platform and you could just hop in, rev the engine and race off to Author Superstardom?
So great, right?!
Right. Back to reality.
Ok, so perhaps there is a bit (read a lot!) more effort involved in building a strong platform that draws people to you and your work. But there is a way to flatten the learning curve and increase your chances of a favourable outcome.
