I recall going to the circus as a child, with a short list of what I wanted to see.
I loved the trapeze, the elephants and the lions.
Those were my main reason for going.
Inevitably, however, I would leave the circus loving some of the other amazing acts just as much.
The part where they invited all the kids to come down and ride in carriages around the arena as part of the finale comes to mind.
There were amazing horse riders, sword swallowers, and many other acts that I left the event raving about.
Plus, of course, the cotton candy.
Now, had you mentioned these other acts in the beginning, to try to lure me to the circus (without my favorites included), I would not have been nearly as interested.
I came for certain acts, and left loving some new ones.
The same is true when you are just starting out as an author.
IT CAN BE HARD TO GET MORE EYES ON YOUR “ACT” IN THE BEGINNING.
But if you can showcase your talent alongside of others, you can attract and build your own readership.
IT IS A WAY TO GET MORE EYES ON YOU AND YOUR WORK.
Rather than waiting years for your name to be in headlines, you can jump start the process.
IT IS LIKE THAT OLD SAYING, T.E.A.M.,
When you take part in an anthology, you have multiple authors bringing attention to the book, which in turn brings eyes on you, as a co-author.
I call it crowdsourcing an audience.
That is why I host and also participate in as many anthologies as possible.
With an anthology, I know there will forever be multiple authors bringing attention to that book, and as a result, more people be introduced to me and my work.
Just one of the many reasons I THINK A WELL-RUN ANTHOLOGY IS ONE OF THE GREATEST SHOWS ON EARTH FOR AUTHORS.
Well, that and cotton candy.
_Leap. Love. Grow._
