As you know, I try to write a newsletter about once a week or once every other week. This week I decided to add something different. A blog. The blog is NOT going to promote my comics or books but instead give YOU some friendly writing advice and tips.
This week’s writing tip…
Know your target audience!
My first 3 Tercona books –
Tercona: Book 1 – Our New Home,
Tercona: Book 2 – Dr. Q & The Banana Gun and
Tercona: Book 3 – Trinity’s Traps
These bookswere targeted toward girls 8 – 12 years old.
My first comic book was published in 2019. It was called Tercona comic #1 – Who is Thea Baymon? It was targeted toward teens but generally, I like to say – all ages. Comics 2 – 6 also target the same age group.
My romantic comedy novel The Taming Of April is targeted toward adults. If it was a movie it would be rated R. Sex “talk” and teasing but defiantly not pornographic or what some people call “spicy”. The Taming Of April is sent to be published in March of 2023.
As you can see, books, comics, and novels can all target different audiences and different age groups. If you want to sell your books to that age group you have to know who your target audience is.
