This is a stunningly-good resource by Frances Caballo. I recommend this highly if you’re trying to sell a new book, planning to sell a book some day, or just hoping to be able to reach more readers. Frances Caballo knows her stuff and explains it clearly. Despite having 4000 Facebook friends, I need to do everything she suggests! It’s so comprehensive and so useful I’m going to recommend it to everyone I know. Not just writers, but fabulous for other artists and small-business people. Good work! Thank you so much for making life easier for us all. ~~ Molly Fisk, Poet, Writing Teacher, Radio Commentator
Well researched and well written, this book is a must for every writer who wants to sell books! If you take this book and go through it step by step, you will be a social marketing pro in no time. As an author, that is exactly what I plan to do. Don’t be overwhelmed by this crucial aspect of your marketing plan. Social media is here to stay, and Social Media Just for Writers should be on your bookshelf! ~~ Arlene Miller, Author
The only negative thing I have to say about Social Media Just for Writers is it should have been published sooner.The book is divided into the major online media marketing tools and describes the overall best use for each. It lists the features and how to maximize them to get the most out of the time you spend setting up your pages, profiles etc. and interacting with your connections. I loved the clever tie in the author made between famous people and each media marketing tool: Facebook & Nicholas Sparks; LinkedIn & Agatha Christie; Google+ & Hemingway; Picasso & Pinteret. ~~ Lee McKenzie
