Kimberley Grabas presents Personal Branding for Authors: What It Is And Why It’s Essential posted at Your Writer Platform, saying, “Personal branding can be a vague term… It isn’t just a website, a font choice or a clever tagline. It’s a blend of your skills, talents, values, interests, and beliefs reflected through your writing, online presence, and offline interactions. For authors, it’s often a mix of professional and personal branding which includes what you do, why you do it and who you do it for. But, It’s not enough just to be good at what you write.

This is why effective branding is such a big and significant part of developing and growing your writer platform.”
