Stop feeling invisible and start attracting the attention you deserve.

Have you been writing for years, but feel like no one notices? Have you published your stories, only to gain a handful of readers? Do your marketing efforts feel like shouting into a void?

Veteran writer and motivational coach Colleen M. Story helps you break the spell of invisibility to reveal the author platform that will finally draw readers your way.

There are more books out there than ever before, and readers have many other things vying for their attention. A writer can feel like a needle in a haystack, and throwing money at the problem rarely helps. What does work is creating a platform that stands out, but in a sea of a million platforms, how is one to do that?

Writer Get Noticed! takes a new approach, dispelling the notion that fixing your writing flaws and expanding your social media reach will get you the readers you deserve. Instead, discover a myriad of strengths you didn't know you had, then use them to find your author theme, power up your platform, and create a new author business blueprint, all while gaining insight into what sets you apart as a writer and creative artist.

Writers need readers to achieve their highest potential. Find your way to stand out, and let it lead you to the writing career that fulfills all your expectations and more.

In this motivational and inspiring book, you'll learn:

  • Why improving your writing skills isn't enough.
  • Why it's critical you discover your strengths...and how to do so.
  • What's stopping you from finding the readers who love your work.
  • What you really want from writing and why that matters.
  • Easy methods to help you build a more successful author platform.
  • What truly motivates you and how to use that to succeed.
  • And much more!

Reviewed by Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers' Favorite Most writers have that one big dream: to write and publish a best-selling novel. After writing the so-called bestseller, the author has to land a big contract with a traditional publisher. And, then the fun begins: promoting oneself, creating an author’s platform that really sells. It’s a big task, perhaps even bigger than the actual writing of the novel. Even if writers are unsuccessful in landing that big contract with a traditional publisher (and most authors fall into that category), there are ways to be successful in the world of writing and publishing. Author Colleen M. Story has the tool to help all writers achieve success. Writer Get Noticed! A Strengths-Based Approach to Creating a Standout Author Platform is both a guidebook and a workbook, aka journal, to coach writers at all levels of success, to help them achieve even greater success. The author leads the reader through careful steps to prepare them for the successful writing career they so desire. Each chapter is well laid out, complete with exercises and space to jot down notes and answers to questions presented. Colleen stresses in her introduction that it’s imperative for the reader to follow through with all of the exercises because she wants the book to act as a writing coach to prepare writers to be the best they can be in their chosen writing field. Colleen asks readers some pretty poignant questions, like why writing matters to them, forcing the reader to look more deeply into themselves and their writing goals and aspirations. This is definitely an excellent resource and tool to help all writers achieve greater success in their writing careers.

In "Writer Get Noticed!" the author states that “it’s time to create an author platform uniquely right for you” as your “platform is the key not only to the success of your books, but to your personal and professional fulfillment as a creative entrepreneur.” To that end, she provides a number of exercises for you to do as you read the book. “Though you could simply read the book and learn some important lessons, I guarantee you’ll gain a lot more if you work with me as we go.” She’s right. Don’t skip these! The book is well written and well set out, with each topic flowing into the next. The author illustrates her points with case studies of real-life authors, as well as with examples from her own career. This comprehensive guide will lead you through an in-depth analysis of your strengths and show you how to match your talents to your passions to create a plan of action. By the end of the book, you will have come up with your author theme, your tagline, and your mission statement, and a much clearer purpose of what you want to achieve as a writer. This book will benefit all types of writers, whether you write books, articles, or blog posts. As a blogger myself, reading this book has helped me clarify my motivations and define my own mission. The author makes it clear that there’s more to being a writer than merely writing a book. Always remember that “there’s joy in the act of creation that fills our hearts and keeps us coming back to the writer’s desk. But sometimes we forget that it’s on the other side of that desk, where we interact with others, that we discover where we truly belong.” Inspiring. I received this book in return for an honest review. Full blog post: https://www.booksdirectonline.com/2019/04/writer-get-noticed-by-colleen-m-story.html

I had previously read and appreciated Overwhelmed Writer Rescue bu the same author. I strongly recommend you get your own copy of that book. So when I saw this new book, Writer Get Noticed!, I could not resist. I love it equally as much and strongly suggest you buy your own copy of this as well as others to give as gifts. Not only is Colleen M. Story well versed in her topic, she has such an engaging way to share her well research findings, that you are motivated and encouraged to work harder at achieving your dreams. She writes about recognizing our strength and putting them to best use, working at strengthening what you already enjoy and do well, along with doing better at your less well honed talents. Once again there are plenty of real life examples offered to help you understand how you can put these steps into play. You can even learn to enjoy the journey and appreciate the time involved as your work improves and you find your proper audience. These are not books to read once and then shelve. Colleen M Story writes books to treasure and return to again and again as you grow.

Grab a fresh journal and your favorite pen. Then kick off your shoes, and jump into the pages of WRITER GET NOTICED with both feet! The user-friendly exercises alone are with the price of admission. They revealed and explained things about myself I didn't know before. My favorite was discovering my strengths. But the author, Colleen Story, doesn’t stop there. She goes on to show you how to leverage them. I highly recommend this book!
