Cinderella Borscht Belt Interview on YouTube!

Hi Everyone,

I just interviewed with Paula Tudor who sets up discussions with various artists and writers on YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook. She has over 2,600 followers on Twitter. Following is a link to the YouTube interview about my novella. (I am so psyched!)

Here’s a tip to new MFA people: Set up social media sites and a webpage ASAP. It’s a lot of work to keep up with sending stuff out and blogging, but worth it. Social media is a really powerful way to promote your work. Also, FYI – lots of literary agents post when they’re accepting new work on Twitter.

    Great interview, Jeannette. I second what you say about setting up social media and a website. If writers wants to take the step to author (i.e. getting published by significant publishers), they MUST have an author website. I resisted it at first because creating one scared me (all that technology) and I didn’t want to spend the money to have a professional do it. I struggled through it and created one myself. Many agents will not even look at you if you don’t have a website. Those agents who that are wowed by your submission and agree to represent you will insist you create a website before they send out your work to publishing houses. Here’s the reality: good agents and publishers want to work with professionals, writers who take the business of writing seriously. To show you’re one of them, you need a website. Once you have that, set up a Twitter account and a Facebook author page (separate from your personal page). If you’re not lucky enough to be signed by a major publishing house with a publicist who will promote your work, it will be up to you to get it out there. Your website, blog, Twitter, and Facebook are essential for doing so. Jeanette is a great example of this.
