How can I help you?

I would genuinely like to know, what advice can I provide to help you better share your creative work and reach your audience?

Reply below (or via email) and let me know.

I will be spending March sharing as much advice I can via videos, online events, social media, and through email. I want to reply directly to any questions you send my way.

As you may know, my book, Be the Gateway: A Practical Guide to Sharing Your Creative Work and Engaging an Audience, will be published this coming Tuesday, March 7th. This book is the culmination of years or work in the trenches with writers and creative professionals. It takes you behind the scenes into my process of helping people share their work and develop an audience.

If you haven’t purchased the book, please consider checking it out. If you have ordered a copy: thank you!

This week I launched a new video series called Gateway Conversations. Here is the first one, where I answer a question sent in from Lisa, about how can a novelist find other ways to engage her audience:

I couldn’t possibly be more excited to be sharing Be the Gateway this month, and engaging with people via Gateway Conversations.

Throughout this month, I will also be sharing sharing blog posts, interviews, and webinars with wonderful friends & colleagues including Jennie Nash, Jane Friedman, Joanna Penn, Joel Friedlander, Kate Tilton, Angela Ackerman, Brooke Warner, Cynthia Morris, Jenny Blake, Orna Ross and many others. I am grateful for their support, and of course, for yours.

Please, go ahead and let me know what questions I can answer for you, and again, I appreciate your checking out Be the Gateway.
Thank you!

    I just ordered your book–thanks for the reminder! Looking forward to reading… And I look forward to your posts this month.

  • That was a great video Dan– you gave me a lot of ideas in your answer to Lisa. I am writing my first novel, and I am really interested in sharing (whether it is in the form of a podcast or an emailed monthly newsletter) about the process I’m going through. I would feel less isolated (as you mentioned) if I brought people into my process, and along with that I would be held accountable to finish. Eeek.

    • Heather,
      Thanks! Yes, accountability is a big part of getting things done. Monthly doesn’t seem especially collaborative though. Consider either: other ways to stay accountable in addition to a monthly email, or doing weekly.
      Thanks!

    I’m looking forward to reading your book Dan!

    I’ve been struggling with how bring the topics of my fiction work into my social media and newsletter content. Your video sparked some great ideas for me, thank you (and Lisa)!

  • I can’t wait to share our interview šŸ™‚
