As writers, we often wish we could lock ourselves away to pursue our art and craft. In today’s publishing environment, however, our ability to engage our audience determines our success. Books are sold by word of mouth—and a chief way to do that now is via social media. With social media, the reader isn’t just sharing with one person—she’s sharing with hundreds and doing it instantaneously. I can help you establish your social media presence from the ground up or make your existing presence flourish.
