Online Publishing

Remember: To boost your online presence and rank higher in Internet searches, be sure you:

  • Do: Maintain an author website
  • Do: Focus on excerpts, not entire works
  • Do: Post entire short works that have already been published
  • Do: Share links to other websites featuring your writing
  • Do: Publish across multiple pages; not all on one
  • Do: Check your formatting in various browsers
  • Do: Proofread!

And always stay safe! Here’s what an author should NOT do online:

  • Don’t: Post entire works you hope to publish elsewhere
  • Don’t: Use hard-to-read colors or fonts
  • Don’t: Post lengthy pieces
  • Don’t: Publish personal info
  • Don’t: Include explanations in case people “don’t get it”
  • Don’t: Post anything you’re worried might be stolen
