Now question number 1 is “If I am writing a book what do I create an event on?”

  • Doing a virtual book tour
  • Showing how you came up with the book

Where do you generate a list….

Social media is the easiest and best place to start.

When I was at a clients office the other day I was introduced to an associate of his that said, “Facebook. Twitter. That stuff doesn’t work. There’s nobody seriously using that for business!”

Think again…

Social media is becoming the preferred method of communicating. It is becoming a key part of the majorities life-style and it is pretty much universal.

So think of social media as you, an author, having a number of broadcast channels. (You know, radio, TV, etc.)

How will you interact with them?
