I made the list of Who’s Who of Emerging Writers 2021. The blurb at Amazon says:
In the second annual Who’s Who of Emerging Writers compiled and published by Sweetycat Press, the bios of 128 writers worldwide are included, along with seven essays by professionals in the writing field that should be of interest to every writer at all stages in their careers as writers. An emerging writer is one who has reached a level of proficiency and publication to be deemed a professional writer but not yet reached the level of fame and recognition they deserve. Their bios are as interesting as any story or novel. In this Who’s Who are bios of novelists, short story writers, poets, playwrights, screenwriters and journalists. In this 2021 issue discover WHO the 128 emerging writers are, WHAT they have written, WHERE they live, WHEN they started writing, and WHY they write. Many of them have websites where you can find out even more about them. Open the pages of the Who’s Who of Emerging Writers 2021 and enter a world of unmatched writing talent.

Third Place Winner: Building Your Brand by James Pyles
As an author, building your brand might seem obvious. Create a website /blog, use it to advertise your works, such as novels published, anthologies contributed to, and so on. Then link the heck out of them on social media (Facebook, twitter, Pinterest, etc…).
But everyone does that.
