Social Media for Authors
Published or Pre-published, how to use social media to sell your books.
This class will help youbreak down and understand what social media platforms will work best to promote your book.Pre-published or published, you want your book to gain at least enough attention so you can ask for Amazon reviews and ultimately beg, er, ask for sales.
But social media is not just posting on Twitter - buy my book #desperate.It’s relationship building, and story telling.If you approach the whole morass of Social Media with the idea that you are simply employing different platforms to tell essentially the same story - both your own story and that of your book, you’ll find it’s not the soul sucking,mad circus it first appears.
- A spread sheet of promotional sites

But do something, your book depends on it.
