Building a Writer's Platform

I have been working furiously to build a writer's platform.
I read on that if editors want to pick up your work, one of the first things they do is "Google" you.

What does a literary agent want to see when they google you?

So, I googled me.
There are a lot of Susan Knights!

If you google "Susan Knight, Author," you'll get me.   s.m.i.l.e.

You can also google "Susan Knight FamilyShare" and get the articles I wrote for DeseretConnect via

Also, if you google "Susan Knight divorce," you'll get me.
So sad that my name has to be had with that "d" word, but it's true.
However, you will find some of my best writing on my divorce blog: I have to warn you, it's not for the fainthearted. But it is for women who have gone through the same thing I did--a divorce due to Adultery, Abuse, and Addiction (porn). I call it the Triple A divorce.

I also have a blog about the first two chapters up of the book I'm trying to pitch now: "Connected in Love."

If you'd like something more lighthearted, try my Mother's Memoirs blog. My daughter, Jewely, gave me one of those fill in the blanks books about my life, so I decided to blog it instead because, well, it's easier to type a lot of stuff :-)

I also have a spiritual blog called "Then Sings My Soul":
