SFWA member has created an excellent guide for authors who need to build a social media platform (and that would be pretty much everyone, whether traditionally or self published!). Her guidance is easy to follow and wise, and especially if you're a social media beginner, terrified of the seemingly overwhelming challenge of putting yourself out there in the social media landscape, the book is a great introduction!

This is an excellent guide. I had the pleasure of meeting Cat in person at Clarion West earlier this year, and her advice regarding writing processes was extremely valuable. This book is an insightful complement - there are LOTS of tips regarding social media I wasn't aware of. (And I'm a social media fiend!!) If you are a writer, you must read this book.

Picked this up as part of an ebook bundle, based on Gerry Weinberg's inclusion in said bundle. An excellent read! I'm not looking to write fiction myself, but I think there are a lot of fantastic tips here for authors of all stripes.
