Guest POST BY Donna Galanti: 10 Ways To Build Your Author Email List - EVEN Before Your Book Comes Out!
Your email list, whether for a blog or newsletter, is one of the best things you can build as an author that is all your own. Building a strong social media following can be resourceful in making connections and promoting your book, but you don’t “own” those followers. If those social platforms went away, you would lose all your followers – not with your email list.
Check out the 10 ways you can start building your email list right now, even if you’re not published yet.
Now go – build your subscriber list and new fans!
