Check Out the New SFWA Website and My Article!

Folks, I am pleased to share with you that the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America have just rolled out a brand new website located at http://www.sfwa.org [1]. This look and feel, in my opinion, was a much needed face lift to not only bring the website’s technology and design up-to-date, but also to highlight some of the industry-facing news that affects many writers, editors and publishers of the genre. Here’s a little bit more about the SFWA organization from their website:

SWFA informs, supports, promotes, defends and advocates for its members. We host the prestigious Nebula Awards [2], assist members in legal disputes with publishers, and administer benevolent funds for authors facing medical or legal expenses. Novice authors benefit from our Information Center [3] and the well-known Writer Beware [4] site. –SOURCE: Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America Website [1]

While you’re checking out the new website, you might want to read an article I wrote for SFWA about personalization in online marketing [5].

Here is an excerpt from the article:

Get Personal with your Marketing Efforts
In recent years, the topic of online marketing has become more of a focal point for several authors. Coupled with the changes in the publishing industry and advances in technology, I seem to have more discussions about online marketing than I do about writing fiction, in part because I’ve been involved in online marketing professionally for the past few years.

Read the remainder of how to Get Personal With Your Marketing Efforts [6] on the SFWA website. Be sure to check out their blogs, too.
