I started reading Amanda’s posts on chipmagregor.com about the time my novel was launching. Amanda’s understanding of branding and her insight as an agent were extremely helpful to me as I thought about an overall platform strategy. I had no idea what to do about Facebook, and her thoughts helped me refine what I was doing and better connect with my fiction readers.
~ Charity Hawkins, author of The Homeschool Experiment: a novel


My twitter following tripled with Amanda’s training and after putting her Google search rules into practice, my blog posts are drawing increased traffic and new shares. Reading The Extroverted Writer is like getting down-to-earth advice from your best friend. Your extroverted best friend that knows all the social media answers you need. Finally!
~Laura Anderson Kurk (laurakurk.com), author of Glass Girl and Perfect Glass


Amanda Luedeke, agent at the number one literary agency in the country, MacGregor Literary, Inc., takes you through easy, step by step approaches to growing your online presence and as a result, your audience.

I have religiously followed the Thursdays with Amanda posts over at Chip MacGregor's blog, absorbing the awesome advice that Amanda is so annoyingly full of. So when I saw that she'd written an e-book about marketing, I bought it as soon as I could. And I'm very glad I did. Amanda Luedeke's "The Extroverted Writer" is a great marketing tool for authors. She gives platform-building advice about everything from Facebook and Pinterest, to blogs and giveaways--and she does it in concise, easy-to-understand paragraphs that are oftentimes as humorous as they are insightful. This is a great overview of marketing and, unlike most books on building a platform, it doesn't just tell you the things you should be doing. It shows you how to do those things. And that makes it an amazing tool for noob writers and experienced authors alike. Five stars.
