We've all sat down to enjoy a good book and perhaps it touched us. Often times those books leave us wanting more or filled us with unanswered questions. What if we could speak with the author? What if he or she could answer those questions for us? What if you were that author? What if you could directly answer the questions of your readers?

Now you can.

There is no better way to market your work than making yourself available to your fan base. You become a real person. Your fans have questions that only you can answer and you can now answer those questions one-on-one and over the phone through the Authors Bureau ECN - a personal media platform for authors.

Self-promotion is the life-blood of authors. The Authors Bureau ECN is a feature rich promotional platform and gives authors the opportunity to reach out to their fans and make connections on a personal level. While this is beneficial to established authors, it is especially critical to new authors still building a following.

While the Authors Bureau ECN enables authors and their readers to interact, that's not all it does. Have we mentioned that authors get paid? That's right, authors get paid for interacting with their fans. Promoting yourself, building your fan base and getting paid to do it. It doesn't get better than that.

Let the Authors Bureau ECN take your visibility to the next level. You've written a book, you have a growing base of fans -- let us help you reach them.

Trailer for Behind the Woods and Across the Sea

Douglas Phillips
Posted at 3/10/2017

https://vimeo.com/user5038976/trailer1

In a sense, I started working on the documentary Behind the Woods and Across the Sea about 45 years ago, when I interviewed my grandfather, Owen Phillips, about his life, including his immigration to the United States. I obtained more information about Owen's life from my father, Edmond Phillips, in 1988. Then in 2007, on the 100th anniversary of Owen's arrival in the United States, I visited Ellis Island with my cousin Herschel Woolman. Finally, in 2014 and again in 2016, I visited Belarus to fill in important pieces of the story. I hope you find the trailer intriguing....more

5 Best Blogging Platforms for New #Authors

Authors Bureau ECN Sponsor
Posted at 12/13/2016

As a new author you might be surprised to discover that in addition to everything else you are doing you are also responsible for helping to promote your work, as well as yourself as a new and emerging author. This is where a blog will come into play. Your blog will be the main focus of your new platform. Your blog is a reflection of you, but it is also a place to post updates on your published work and any works in progress. The key is finding the best blogging platforms for new authors.


WordPress
Posting a new piece to WordPress is really simple; all you have to do is use the WYSIWYG editor. Uploading images, choosing categories and tags are also relatively simple. WordPress offers a variety of widgets and plugins that allow you to add just about anything you need to your blog. Most importantly WordPress is highly reliable, new and seasoned users have never had an issue with their work suddenly disappearing. The downfall to WordPress though is you will need to integrate your blog with an email service provider to allow people to subscribe to your blog via their email. WordPress isn’t considered a social network, so networking is non-existent.

Blogger
Like WordPress posting in Blogger is really simple; all you have to do is use the WYSIWYG editor. Making certain customizations is pretty easy, although you do not have total control like you do in WordPress, but like WordPress the HTML/CSS is easy to access. One of the biggest problems authors find with Blogger is uploading images is not as easy as it is in other platforms. For some reason Blogger automatically resizes every image that is uploaded, so you will have to make adjustments before posting. If you plan on posting a lot you are limited to 1GB of storage, which we all how quickly it can run out. Social sharing is limited to Goggle+.

Medium
This is one of the newer blogging platforms that new authors will find highly useful, as well as easy to use. With Medium you don’t have to worry about widg
