BooklifeNow.com, a website that serves as support for and a supplement to Booklife: Strategies and Survival Tips for the 21st-Century Writer by author Jeff VanderMeer, is proud to announce a new website rebranding and content management team that aims to keep current with changing trends in the writer’s market, as well as increase reader engagement and grow the reader base.
“Jeff VanderMeer’s Booklife gave you the platform. The BooklifeNow site is the expansion kit,” said Jaym Gates, BooklifeNow Publicist. “Jeff ran the BooklifeNow blog since the original site launch in 2008, but with his anthology commitments and weirdfictionreview.com, he made the decision to focus on other projects. Jeff offered fellow writer Morgan Dempsey ownership of the BooklifeNow.com website and brand – with the agreement that she and her hand-picked team would have total control of the site brand and contents. After some consideration, Morgan accepted Jeff’s offer, put together a team of writers and artists to collaborate on the project, and rebranded the site. We’re very excited to see the changes in the BooklifeNow site. Our contributors have done a great job in keeping a sprinkle of the old and a dash of the new.”
The re-branded BooklifeNow.com website is poised to launch on April 3rd, visitors to the new site will be able to read articles that illuminate both the business of writing, as well as advice and information that concerns all aspects of the writing life. A staff of working writers and artists are contributing content to the site, including authors Robert Jackson Bennett, Damien Walters Grintalis, Adam Israel, Jeremy Jones, Steven James Scearce, Lillian Cohen-Moore, Jacob Ruby, and artists Galen Dara and Marlyse Comte. Booklife Now site owner Morgan Dempsey and Publicist Jaym Gates will also contribute regularly.
“At BooklifeNow.com, the staff will do everything from offer tips on how to build an author website, to sitting down with attorneys and tax professionals to illuminate the process a writer must go through to incorporate. If a writer might encounter it as they build their career, we’ll cover it here,” said Gates. “It’s a new name, new website, new staff, but the same dedication to writers and their booklife.”
