    Jan-Feb 2022 – Artist Dynamix for real

    February 16, 2022

    What a whirlwind the last few weeks have been. Business registration went through. Then came setting up bank accounts, merchant accounts, this account, that account. So much admin. So many forms to fill.

    January 5, 2022

    We’ve resumed work on Artist Dynamix website. That’s this one. By the time you read this, the site will be live. We had started working on the site on a different domain. Now moving it to new artistdynamix.com.

    July 2, 2021 – Valley of Writers reloaded

    Relaunched Valley of Writers today. The site has been rebranded and is not focusing on sharing tools, resources, and opportunities with writers of fiction and memoir.

    Sent out a mail shot to the VoW mailing list:

    Hi [NAME],

    Remember that little project I told you about?

    Sometime in mid-2019, I started talking to people about a website for writers I was working on. It was just an idea then; a few notes in Scrivener and a lot of synapses firing excitedly in my head.

    In June last year, the beta version for that site was launched and I asked for help from people; comments, ideas, and links to resources.

    I received so much support and encouragement from all of you. Ideas and offers to help came in from so many angles and as a result, the next version of the site, when it went up at the beginning of this year, was much better – but still needed work.

    Today, 18 months after we first launched, I believe the site is finally ready to serve writers.

    Thank you

    Thank you for signing up for updates. For me, having people sign up for a new project that was still just an idea, was a real boost.

    Thank you for the comments and suggestions.

    Thank you for helping me believe this was possible.

    Take a look!

    Do take a look for yourself, valleyofwriters.com. While you’re there, check out the Power Tools for Writers section, the Ideas & Inspiration section, and, if you haven’t done so already, do download our checklist for book launches.

    My passion is that place where writing, technology, relationships, and business meet. As I wrote on the ‘About Us’ page for the site; The question I am always trying to answer is, “How can writers use biz and tech tools to make their work easier, to find more readers, and to sell more books while at the same time building and leveraging great relationships to learn, to teach, to grow?” It’s obviously not worded that concisely in my head, but I get excited when I see those four things in action together.

    A question for you

    As I prepare to communicate more with writers, I’d love to hear from you. Which aspects of business and tech, or related issues, do you most want to hear about as a writer? What are the roadblocks you face in these areas? Please send your responses by email. I’m eagerly awaiting.

    That’s all for now. Thank you again. In the next few weeks, I will be sending more updates on plans for the site, new content and resources that you can use as you publish and market your books, and information on networks and communities that are helping writers grow their careers and sell more books.

    Have a great weekend!

    Open skies,
    Fungai
