We are all guilty, at times, of taking things for granted, and that includes me.
For example, I have taken it for granted you know what Electric Eclectic is and how it works, which I know you, or at least many people, do not.
So, I shall endeavour to explain…
Whether you are an established author, an emerging writer or a debut novelist, all of us have one main wish when it comes to our works; we want our books to be read.
To achieve your dream, you must let the world know you have written a great work, a wonderful collection of short stories or poetry, an enticing novel, your mémoire, or whatever writings you may publish.
This is when things become difficult for indie authors. Few of us have the funds, the know-how, the contacts, the experience or the backing to compete with mainstream publishing houses.
Neither do most have the luxury of time; many indies hold down full-time jobs, have children and family members to care for, along with the many other commitments.
Life can be hectic and demanding.
These are a few of the reasons I founded Electric Eclectic.
Electric Eclectic is NOT a publisher. We do not take any royalties.
Neither do we claim any rights over your work. What is yours, remains yours.
So, what is Electric Eclectic?
In its simplest form, Electric Eclectic is a marketing brand.
Technically, Electric Eclectic is a decentralised international co-operative alliance, managed by members in various countries around the globe, forming a strong branded synergy of collaborative association specialising in authorship, book branding, publishing, marketing and promotions.
Using Electric Eclectic branding, being part of the alliance, allows authors to penetrate deeper and wider into the publishing marketplace reaching many more readers than one can do alone.
Electric Eclectic authors work together and for one another while promoting their books and author presence.
Electric Eclectic concentrates in promoting the brand itself, creating marketing opportunities and offering services for the benefit of its member authors.
As an Electric Eclectic author, you also have the backing of the other members, who will willingly advise, help and support you when required.
Electric Eclectic has a far-reaching, multi-platform social media presence encompassing, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, MeWe, LinkedIn and many more.
Plus, we have a great ‘friends’ network, these are other author networks and publishing houses who work closely with us in promoting indie authors books and those published by the small press, therefore greatly extending our market penetration.
We have a large range of information; Documents, Files, Links, Giveaway books, and various Services to aid and assist Electric Eclectic authors and to help and encourage the use of the marketing and promotional opportunities available through Electric Eclectics initiatives.
Electric Eclectic is not a membership scheme.
There is no annual fee or charge.
It is NOT FREE to join, but it’s darned close.
We do ask for a once off, lifetime author registration fee. This confirms you as an Electric Eclectic author. You’ll be surprised just how small this fee is.
The second cost is a licence fee, allowing you to use the Electric Eclectic branding. Each book using the Electric Eclectic branding requires a licence, as this is linked to the books ISBN or ASIN. Again, this is a very small amount.
We do NOT claim Electric Eclectic is the answer to your all your prayers.
This is NOT a get-rich-quick scheme. Nor do we promise the sales of your books will increase a million-fold overnight or the number of ardent fans will rocket through the roof.
Electric Eclectic should form ‘part-of‘ your authorship, publishing and marketing armoury.
It is NOT intended to replace it. You will still need to work at promoting your books.
What Electric Eclectic is, is a low cost, effective method of reaching a wider audience, connecting with likeminded authors, gaining accesses to help, information & documentation, and benefitting from Electric Eclectic’s marketing initiatives.
