Evolve by Carla Thorpe

As technology has changed so has the world’s expectation for information.  No longer do you see people read magazines, books or newspapers.  It is all about instant access.  They are all holding phones, laptops, netbooks, ipods, etc to get the information load.
Writers now have to take these things in consideration before and after the completion of a project.  Just having a full bound hard back book is not going to work for all of their potential readers.  They have to evolve as technology has.
What does that look like?  How does a writer plan to incorporate technology into the plan for the their project?
Good questions and the answers are even better.
The short story about a child hood summer excursion is complete.  The book is about 50 pages.  It is full of adventure, fun and tips to help a young child understand the dangers in the world.  The book is scheduled to be printed in about three months.  The mailing list and support of the community has been created to help the sales of the story.  An idea to reach those outside of the immediate circle of the writer is to offer a chapter of the book for free as a PDF on the writer’s website.  They select the most exciting chapter to share with the masses and it creates a buzz.  People are now not only enjoying the free gift but contacting the writer on how they can pre-order the book for family.  This one step increased sales, created a buzz and offered the book in a capacity that people can share and access on the go.
That is what it is all about.
You have to create an opportunity in the current trends.  By doing research, planning and the proper execution the evolution of words is a whole new world.
