Traditional Publishing - Pros and Cons / Vlog

 

First...I did a thing...I signed up for TikTok. I didn't think I ever would, and have said as much, but I guess it's true when they say to "never say never," cuz I took the plunge.

Are you on TikTok? Follow me! I'll follow you back!

Thank you for coming to a vlog edition of Write with Fey!

I posted this new PowerPoint Presentation with audio (and closed captioning that you can activate) on my YouTube Channel last week. It is a long video, clocking it over 30 minutes, but it is detailed. Anyone interested in trad publishing will get a lot of of this.

  1. You'll have to tell us how you like Tik Tok. I've been pondering jumping in, but I barely check my Instagram, so...

    1. I’ve posted on TikTok but haven’t scrolled or watched anything on there. I’m still experiencing some resistance to it. lol

  3. I've heard that BookTok is very popular, and a great way to get exposure for your book if a book reviewer on BookTok discusses your book. I haven't taken the plunge because I don't even have enough time for Twitter or Facebook with all the time I spend on my blog.

    1. BookTok is very popular. I’m amazed at the thousands of followers authors I know have there. Far more than other social media platforms, but some authors post 2-3 times a day, and I don’t have that energy. I don’t have the energy to post once a day on TikTok, which is the least amount recommended to build a platform there. Those suggestions are just crazy. Social media and “being and staying relevant” asks too much of us. It’s very ableist.

  4. Brave girl. There is just so much social media I can take. Still, TikTok is certainly a shiny new thing. The number of followers you have is amazing.

  5. I haven't ventured on to Tik Tok yet. I still feel like I'm trying to understand instagram. Still, very exciting to see you expanding onto new platforms.

    1. I trying it out to see what it’s like. At least I’m not getting sucked into it and scrolling endlessly as I do in Instagram. I just pop into TikTok, post, and then leave. I don’t quite understand TikTok’s home page where they show me videos cuz they show me people I don’t follow.

  6. I haven't even looked at Tiki's Tok! I tend to only publish online videos of sermons, but early in the pandemic, I did publish some poetry of mine (and others) that I read in a kayak. I'll have to come back and watch your video.

    1. I don’t know if that was a typo or not, but Tiki’s Tok made me chuckle.

  7. Hi Chrys - I am beginning to feel very social media old! But so be it ... life goes and I watch with amazement - I definitely couldn't keep up with things. I've just read an article on BookTok - that certainly ticked a lot of boxes I could see were relevant in today's world ... I'll be interested to see how you go with it. There's so much going on - but anything with books in gets my approval! Thanks - I'm sure your publishing post is very informative too and will be helpful to many. Cheers and good luck - Hilary
