How to Make Use of Google+ as an Author

.
Everyone wants to be listed high on Google’s search engine results.  You write a blog post, tweet, update your website or add otherwise content to the web.  Google bots, crawling the web, are coming across your post.  The page is indexed within seconds. Google estimates the domain and pages’ overall authority, based on links.

Page rank depends on a few factors, such as the number of Web pages that link to your site, the frequency of keywords within your site and how long your site exists on the internet.  However, with Google+ it’s completely different:  your presence at Google+ means you are high-ranked from the moment you post something on your Google+ timeline or your Google+ pages.
.

64 Google+ Content Strategies [Infographic]

.
Use hashtags on Google+ too

Just like Twitter, Google+ offers  #hashtag benefits to make searching for topics easy. It’s a great way to get found, not only inside Google+, but in the larger world of Google search. If you create a separate page for each of your books and post frequently there, using keywords and  #hashtags, your books will appear prominently on Google’s Search Engine – making it easy for potential readers to find you.
.
Link to your blog posts
As the main search engine Google indexes and ranks its own site much higher than any other content. Google+ posts are easily indexed by Google search, and unlike tweets or Facebook posts, are treated much like regular web pages.  Whenever you have a new blog post, link to it from Google+, and make that post public. By doing this, you have made your post publicly available both inside Google+ and in Google search results worldwide.
.
Want engagement? Write resource-type articles
Google+ posts that receive the most comments are resource-type articles with a lot of links. Those covering Google+ how-to information are heavily shared, along with any tutorials. Write a killer post and link back to your own blog for additional resources. Use #hashtags with relevant topics so it’s easily found, and you have created an outstanding resource that will get you noticed, and will increase traffic to your blog.
.
Connect your profile with your blog’s homepage
The first step in getting results from Google+ is connecting your profile with your blog’s home page. This is the gateway step to claiming your content in the eyes of Google. It will also go far in generating incredible results, including displaying your photo next to your blog post links and a Wikipedia-style profile listing in Google search results whenever anyone searches for your name. For WordPress blog publishers, there’s a very easy way to accomplish this. Google+ shows you how to use Google+ “Direct Connect“.
.
Display your photo in Google search results
All you need is a Google+ page, and to connect it to the home page of your blog. See how important that #1 step was? Your photo will eventually appear next to your blog posts in Google search results.
.
What the Plus?
Take the time to learn Google+ (e.g. with Guy Kawasaki’s book What the Plus?) and engage with your community there. You’ll see results far beyond what any other social network can offer: both social engagement within Google+, and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) in Google.

Ever heard of ListVerse? You might have read these list-articles on Yahoo.com. They are looking constantly for new stories from freelancersYou don’t need to be an expert—you just need to have great English, a sense of humor, and a love for things unusual or interesting.
.

It works like this:
ListVerse.com says: You write your list (1,000 words/10 list-items minimum), you send it in, we reply and say “Great, we’ll publish it” and send you $100 by Paypal (don’t have an account? just make one—it’s easy and free), or we reply and say “Sorry, it isn’t the sort of thing our readers will love, give it another shot.”
.
Get ideas
Do you know of anything, that has several benefits, worth to make a list of? Comb through you book’s manuscript, is there a place or an occurrence that is so unusual, it could be the basis for a list of … Have you been or read about a place that has many facts to be listed? Can you list awesome features of anything in science, technology or travel? Maybe unusual benefits of a certain plant or a list of awesome hidden travel gems in a country. The possibilities to write about are endless! If your article is accepted you will earn $100 for it. Well it’s not much, but compiling lists is not that hard too.

Why not Apply for a Writers Grant?

.

Grants-Funding

.

Dreaming of writing full time, but just don’t have the money to make the writer’s life a reality? Grants for aspiring writers might offer the aid to supplement your income until you will be established as a writer. Many organizations offer grants for writers to help them to complete their projects or help even during emergencies, such as Stephen Kings foundation. See what’s offered in the USA and Canada:

http://www.nea.gov/grants/apply/lit.html
.

STEPHEN KING’s “The Haven Foundation”
He writes: “I was struck by a careless driver and nearly killed while taking my daily walk. It was ten months before I was able to work productively again.

Applications and all supporting documentation for the current round of grants must be received no later than November 23rd, 2012. All applications received after that date will be held for the next round of grants.

Professional Canadian writers who have one published book and are established in any creative literary discipline(s) — fiction, non-fiction, poetry, play-writing, journalism — are all encouraged to apply for Canada’s most northern Writers’ Retreat. The Writer’s Retreat offers writers time, and a remote location to pursue their professional projects. The writer will be housed in the Berton House at no cost in rent or utilities. Travel costs to and from Dawson will also be covered! The writer is responsible for a public reading in Whitehorse and Dawson City and a summary of their stay at Berton House.
http://www.bertonhouse.ca/retreat.html

.

HAIG BROWN RESIDENCY
Published authors are being invited to apply for the 2013-2014 Haig-Brown House Writer in Residence position. The residency entails spending the winter months (or a portion thereof) living in the Haig-Brown Heritage House, which is under the management of the Museum at Campbell River on Vancouver Island (BC).
The modest four bedroom house reflects the character of writer Roderick Haig-Brown and his wife Ann. Located in a peaceful setting on the banks of the Campbell River on Vancouver Island, it contains a Heritage library and is surrounded by two acres of garden and 17 acres of public parkland.  The writer’s time will be divided between pursuing personal writing projects and providing literary advice and support to the local community, and participate in Museum winter programming. A stipend of up to $2000 per month, depending on available funding, will be provided.

Please include a resume (maximum two pages), a list of publications, a one-page proposal of anticipated community activities, and a sample of work in progress (20 pages); with reasons why the residency would further your work. Forward your application package to Sandra Parrish, Museum at Campbell River, Box 70 Stn A, Campbell River, BC V9W 4Z9. Deadline is January 31, 2014. For further information contact sandra.parrish@crmuseum.ca

CANADIAN SHORT STORY PRIZE 2013
Canada Writes, with partners CBC, Canada Council for the Arts, Air Canada’s enRoute magazine and “The Banff Centre”, are pleased to announce the Grand Prize winner will receive $6,000, courtesy of the Canada Council for the Arts, and will have his/her story published in Air Canada’s enRoute magazine and on the Canada Writes website. She or he will also be awarded a two-week residency at The Banff Centre’s Leighton Artists’ Colony, and will be interviewed on CBC Radio. The 4 runners-up will each receive $1,000, courtesy of the Canada Council for the Arts, and their stories will be published on the Canada Writes website.
.

in average one in three proposals typically receives a grant!  It is a myth that you have to be famous in order to get a grant. Truth is, most people who are awarded grants are on their way up, not already there. Fear of being rejected prevents a lot of people from applying for opportunities that are out there.  If you have never written a grant proposal before, do some research on the topic before you begin. Numerous how-to listings and guidelines offer insights to novice grant writers, and even those with experience. Understand the meanings of the vocabulary being used in grant guidelines or to access a glossary of common terms. Some sponsor guidelines will even provide just such a glossary unique to the particular sponsor.

Amazon Trivia since 1994

.

Forbes.com wrote recently: “A few months ago Amazon reached what its founder and CEO Jeff Bezos demurely tells me was “an interesting milestone.”  The retailing giant, so ubiquitously associated with books, then music and video, now has tens of millions of products in stock -and a majority are non-media goods: drills, dress shoes, tennis rackets and almost anything else that a human can ship. That turning point might be Bezos’ greatest accomplishment.
.

Amazon Prime
After Kindle3, Amazon introduced the Prime Membership, a brilliant move. The average member makes $1,224 in Amazon purchases each year,  compared with $505 for non-Prime customers. The TIME wrote: “Membership in Amazon Prime, which offers unlimited free two-day shipping, has doubled in less than two years. Analysts predict it’ll double again by 2017.
Even more interesting than the growing Prime ranks is what Prime seems to do to subscribers. A 2010 Businessweek story stated that Amazon Prime broke even within three months of launching, not the two years predicted by its creators. That’s because customers spent as much as 150% more at Amazon after they became Prime members. Subscribers not only ordered more often, but after paying the $79 fee, they started buying things at Amazon that they probably wouldn’t have in the past. Since shipping was always speedy and free, members saved themselves a trip to the store for things like batteries and coffee beans.” “In all my years here, I don’t remember anything that has been as successful at getting customers to shop in new product lines,” Robbie Schwietzer, vice president of Amazon Prime, told Businessweek.

How to Get Back into Writing after Your Vacation

.

Fishing-Wharf

.

The Stale Writer
Guest post by Patricia PacJac Carroll
.

You have taken an extended break from writing, a long vacation, or summer with the kids. It’s time to get back to the keyboard. You glance at the monitor. Nagging questions rip away your confidence. Do you still have it? Did your creativity expire?
.
It’s been a while since I have had any kind of disciplined writing schedule, but I have a plan:
  • TV is not your writing friend.
  • Social Networking is not your writing friend.
  • Games are not your writing friend.
  • Eating is not your writing friend – not even ice cream.
  • Naps are not your writing friend.
.
So, what is a stale writer to do?
How can you breathe life into that smoldering ember of imagination and finish that book you have been working on for over a year? There must be a better and faster way of writing.
.
 
Prepare
Is your work location neat? Clean up the clutter. Add an inspirational photo or an item that sparks your creativity. Set a date to start writing.
.
 
Anticipate  
Do not let yourself write on the novel until the set date. Think about what you’re going to write. Taste it. Smell it. Feel it. But do not begin writing on that book.
.
 
Set Boundaries 
Look at your day and pick out the times that you’re least likely to be interrupted. Determine if you’re an early morning writer or a late nighter and make plans accordingly. Have a timer handy. Most phones have one.
.
 
Be Wise 
Before you go back to your writing, plan on turning off the Internet unless you need it for research. Keep FB, Twitter, games and whatever else you waste time with turned off. (Pinterest, ebay, Amazon, Stock Market, etc) Place your smart phone out of reach. Trust me; the free world is not dependent on your Tweet. If you are in Word and hit the space bar twice thinking a period will appear, you have become a fb and text message addict. Before you start your writing, set your rules.
.
 
Food and Exercise  
You don’t need food to write while exercise will feed your brain with fresh blood and oxygen. Set your timer to ring every hour or two, get up, and move. If you must, walk into the kitchen and reward yourself with a quick treat – like a carrot, piece of celery, or apple.  Yeah, I know those are not exactly in the treat category. Just don’t eat anything loaded with sugar or fats so your eyes will stay open. Good things to do – walk the dog, jump on a rebounder, use weights, stretch. Then go back into your work area, set the alarm for another break, and continue writing.
.
  
Free Writing
Pump your creative well. Before working on your book, write for five minutes, ten, or fifteen without your editor. Write nonstop about anything until the time is up. You might be surprised at what comes out. One of my friends draws a picture before she starts her day. Just do it. Feed the creative side of your brain.
.

Speed Up
If you type with the speed of an arthritic ninety year old, work on your skills. Free writing on the computer will help. Keep track of how many words you write in a day. Set a goal. If you write a thousand words a day, you will have a 90,000 word novel in three months. You can do this! Get back on the keyboard and be productive!
.

Interview with Anthony Alegrete

.

Anthony-Alegrete

Anthony Alegrete

A great pleasure to meet Anthony Alegrete, the author of Rabbit in the Jungle, today for an interview.

Anthony how would you describe your book to someone who has not yet read it?
It’s the story of my life. My ups and downs, trials and tribulations, good and bad, and how I survived prison, the streets, and turned my life around.
.
Is there a message in your book that you want your readers to grasp?
That people make mistakes. We all come from different backgrounds and grew up differently. And that if you make an attempt to seriously change then it should be accepted by people.

.

What inspired you to start writing?
I was getting to a point where I was becoming a public figure for the work I do in the community. I felt it was necessary to let the world know who I was.
.
How did you get the idea for the novel?  
I just started writing one day. It came to me.
.
Does your book have any underlying theme, message, or moral?
Yes, that we are not all criminals. Yes, we might of did crime to survive and make money. But not all of us are still like that. And through this story I show the evolution of a changing man.
.
Are your characters based on real people?
Oh yes, my characters are all real.
.
Who is your favorite character and why?  
Myself. because that is who the story is about.
.
.
Rabbit-in-the-Jungle

Rabbit in the Jungle by Anthony AlegreteRabbit in the Jungle by Anthony Alegrete

.

Give us an excerpted quote from your favorite review of this book:
“This book gave me a lot of game” from Brent Buffone on Amazon. What he meant by this was it gave him knowledge. “Game” is a slang word of knowledge.

.
If Oprah invited you onto her show to talk about your book, what would the theme of the show be?
Overcoming adversity, interracial tensions, second chances, and changing your life around.
.
What would/could a reader or reviewer say about this book that shows they “get” you as an author?
That the book inspired them and made them open their minds to new thoughts.
.
Thinking way back to the beginning, what’s the most important thing you’ve learned as a writer from then to now?
To always edit and proof-read, then proof-read some more and then edit some more.
.
Considering a book from the first word you write to the moment you see it on a bookstore shelf, what’s your favorite part of the process?  What’s your least favorite?
Favorite part is creating the ideas, and plots, and stories. I got to reminisce. Least favorite part is dealing with the publishing process and getting your files converted properly.
.
What scene or bit of dialogue in the book are you most proud of, and why?
ALL OF IT! But anywhere I talk about my kids. I love them so much.
.
If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything about your book?
Only that I would add more stories.
.
If your book would be made into a movie, who should play the main character?
Edward Norton
.
How did you get published? Please share your own personal journey.  
CreateSpace. But I got published because of 111Publishing. Doris helped me out tremendously and made it so I didn’t get ripped off by the vanity publishers.
.
What general advice do you have for other writers?
Just be you! Dont try so hard. Just let the pen write!
.
What do you find is the best part of being an author?
The respect you get.
.
What is ONE thing that you have done that brought you more readers?
Goodreads page!
.
What’s one thing that your readers would be surprised to know about you?
Well this book is a memoir and describes it to the fullest, so there isn’t much
I left out of the story…
