I ‘met’ Seumas in Blogville several months ago. He’s a delightful man with a great sense of humor.

He is also the author of several crime-thriller books that are hugely popular. Seumas is very helpful to other authors and want-to-be authors, if you have questions,  he’ll most likely have an answer.

Please, make welcome my new bloggy friend Seumas Gallacher.

 

 

why this ol’ Jurassic Scots Scribbler has a Blog…

…one of the perennial ‘chestnuts’ asked by newbie Authors, is whether or not they should maintain a Blog… in my not-so-’umble opinion I think it’s paramount for any writer in the modern publishing age to have his/her own Blog… producing yer literary masterpieces is one thing… but it’s only a part of yer ‘business of writing’… presence on the SOSYAL NETWURKS helps in the thrust to ‘build the platform’ of followers, and broadens readership…

in any business, good, strong, personal relationships are part and parcel of doing well in whatever field yeez may be in, and it’s no different in yer writing business… the novels and books are the place to have yer ‘Author’s Voice’ identified… the Blog is where yeez develop yer ‘Author’s Brand’… the personalised stuff which people like to connect with so well… my crime fiction is hard-boiled narrative… as an offset to that, the Blog is lighter-veined, hopefully entertaining, sum’times educational… and I focus on ‘sharing’ with fellow quill-scrapers…

support others and they’ll support back… it’s a fundamental desire most of us have… to belong… to be a member of the great, global, wunnerful writers’ diaspora… I also involve myself in Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Pocket, Google+, Pinterest… and the beauty of it all?… each time I write a Blog Post, it automatically gets shared across all these channels… the reach is phenomenal…

this is not meant as a commercial ‘plug’, but what the heck, I published a while back on Amazon Kindle a wee guide to the few SOSYAL MEDYA links I use, SELF-PUBLISHING STEPS TO SUCCESSFUL SALES, which yeez can take a squint at on the sample page at Amazon… see if it might be of some help to yeez… and like my pal, Jackie here, I encourage Guest Posts galore on my page…come and join us… see yeez later… LUV YEEZ!

  1. Thanks for putting Seumas’s wurds of wisdom here, Jackie. As you know, I’m an absolute newcomer to Blogland and I’m here because our wurdy friend Seumas took me by the hand and led me here into another of his Sosyal Medya countries; I’ve been living in facebook for some years. I have already met some pretty wonderful Blogland people in the short time I’ve been here and I love it.

    1. Thank you Jeanette. Seumas is a wonderfully talented man who is blessed with a good heart. He volunteered to put his words here and I accepted, because I’m not dumb. LOL Blogland is full of wonderful people. So glad you became part of it. 🙂
