Why Knowing Who You Write Like Really Matters!
Whether you’re a self-published writer or are aiming to attract a traditional agent or publisher to your project, knowing who you write like can make all the difference between a successful book launch and a flop.
In “Let’s Get Visible: How to get noticed and sell more books,” David Gaughran advises that the majority of readers are looking for new books that are similar to those written by their favorite authors. Most literary insiders like Gaughran agree that identifying the authors whose style of writing is similar to your own is the first step in pitching your title effectively.
