Friday Roundup and A Survey for Authors

Marketing Tips and Podcast Survey by Frances Caballo of Social Media Just for WritersAs you know, I’m busy these days preparing for the launch the Social Media for Authors Podcast.

So far, I have recorded eight episodes and before I record too many more, I would love to have your feedback.

What I’d like to know is what would you most like to hear about in upcoming episodes.

So I developed a short survey for authors like you!

As I explain in the podcast, the new podcast isn’t about me and it isn’t for me; it’s for you.

You see, I’m purposely keeping the episodes short – about 11 minutes – so that you’ll have time to both listen to the podcast and check out the links I mention without spending too much time.

After all, I know that you’d rather spend your time writing.

I would love know what you’d like to learn in the podcast. So, I put together a very short survey with just four questions.

Now, here’s the fun part. The first ten people who answer my survey will receive a free eBook of my most recent book, Avoid Social Media Time Suck: A Blueprint for Authors to Create Online Buzz for Their Books and Still Have Time to Write.

So, why wait. Take the survey now and receive a free copy of my newest book. Of course to receive the copy you’ll need to send me your email address.
