All writers need to find their audience. Writing instructors and publishers have been saying this for years because it’s the golden rule to selling books. Readers from different genres have unique expectations that you as an author must comply with or they may never read you again. Before you can write to your audience, you must first understand them. Author and social media coordinator for the Crime Writers of Canada, Erik D’Souza, will review several steps that you should take before even lifting your pen.
Erik D’Souza is a Port Moody author, publisher, and professional speaker. In 2019, he published New Beginnings, a collection of creative writings from BC authors and donated all of its profits to SHARE. His most recent novel, Death on the Rocks, is the follow-up to Death in Halfmoon Bay. They are traditional mysteries set on the Sunshine Coast of BC with a senior amateur sleuth. He is the social media and webinar coordinator for Crime Writers of Canada and president of the Tri-City Wordsmiths. In addition, he hosts the popular reading series Writers in Our Midst at the Port Moody Public Library.
