Social Media and Marketing for Authors

Most authors know they need to use social media, but many don’t know where to start. Perhaps you already use social media in your personal life but aren’t sure how to deploy these powerful tools to market your book. Or perhaps you’re bewildered by the whole enterprise and don’t know Instagram from Twitter from Linked In. Whatever your starting point, I can help. As a published novelist with over ten years of experience in book marketing, I have a unique perspective on social media, books, and how the two can work together to boost discoverability: the key for any author in today’s competitive, complex and often confusing publishing world.
