Welcome to the The Literary Entrepreneur Podcast, Episode 1
I’m your host Tyora Moody.
This is the first The Literary Entrepreneur Podcast. I thought it best to start off with some history, so you can get to know me and where I’m going with this podcast. First of all the title. The Literary Entrepreneur.
So I have this book coming out or may be by the time you listen to this podcast it has already been released. The title of the book is The Literary Entrepreneur’s Toolkit: Building and Managing and Online Presence for Authors.
Is that a long title or what?
This was my first nonfiction project and prior to writing this book I had four fiction novels published. Three are romantic suspense and one is a cozy mystery. So I went from dealing with characters, multiple characters with different personalities to putting my thoughts on paper about how to develop a author brand.
Now if you’re wondering, well why did I think I could do this podcast.
Prior to becoming an author officially in 2012, I had been working with authors since 1999 via my first company, Tywebbin Creations. So over the past 13+ years I’ve worked with traditionally published authors as well as self-published authors. I’ve done everything from building author websites, designing book covers to coordinating over 100 virtual events like virtual book tours and Facebook chats. I currently spend a lot of one-on-one time with authors developing book marketing strategies and in some cases I provide social media management.
I’m very much in the category of an online marketer except my niche is the literary industry.
In 2011, I launched into my second business, Tymm Publishing. So I come to you with many types of experiences in the world of publishing and marketing a book, especially from an entrepreneurial point-of-view.
Also, in the past two years I had begun to reach a point where one-on-one isn’t always possible with everyone that crosses my path. It was almost frustrating because I’m a teacher at heart and I like to see people learn. You can tell when you get the same questions over and over again and you start to see patterns that there are certain areas that need to be addressed.
So it’s my hope The Literary Entrepreneur Podcast along with some other virtual training I will be doing, will address a lot of those questions that I simply don’t have the time to answer or couldn’t fit into the book.
If you have been cringing about book marketing, I want you to tune-in The Literary Entrepreneur Podcast every 1st and 3rd Monday. You can listen also listen to us on:
