Overview

Forward written by NY Times Best-Selling Author and Co-Creator of Who Dares Wins Publishing Bob Mayer "I wished there had been a step-by-step guide for writers on how to not only do it technically, but do it content-wise. This book is the answer to that wish."

Social Media is more popular than ever. As society becomes more and more technologically advanced, people are seeking new ways to interact. Humans are social creatures. Relationships and community are vital to our survival and our mental and emotional health.

Writers, published and unpublished, fiction and non-fiction are hearing words like platform and brand with increasing frequency as the publishing paradigm shifts into the 21st century. The world around us is changing faster than ever, and publishing is certainly not immune.

There are more opportunities for a new author today than there has been in the entirety of human history. Yet, the flip side of that reality is, with thousands and thousands of authors with books and blogs, how can a writer ever hope to stand apart let alone succeed?

This book will show you how.

There are countless social media experts, but Kristen's system is specifically designed to meet the unique needs of a writer. Take charge of your future today. You have great books to write, and don't have time for rookie mistakes that can cost you years of rebuilding your name, brand, and platform.

Kristen's method is simple, effective, and helps you harness that same creativity you apply to your writing and harness it to build you social media platform. Best part is you don't even have to be a computer expert or know anything about sales. This system is designed to change the writer's approach, not the writer's personality.

And the best part is you have help. Remember, We Are Not Alone.

    Very Informative Yet easy to understand. If you want to write a book and be successful with it, this is a must read.

    As an Author on the subject:"Tai Chi The Way Of Balance In An Unbalanced World", It is my sincere desire for my book to get into the hands of as many as possible. Not only for the financial part, but to simply spread the good news about Tai Chi. The challange of writing the book was nothing compared to the challange of marketing the book. That's when I discovered "We Are Not Alone The Writer's Guide To Social Media" By Kristen Lamb. Ms Lamb takes you by the hand and clearly explains what to do to ensure your book is marketed properly throughout so many social medias that we did not even have 10 years ago. Although she never talks down to you, she explains things in a step by step process that even an old computer illiterate like me can do this type of marketing. Should all new authors read this? Yes, I think they should read it before they write their book so they will know what to do when their book is completed. Good job Ms Lamb....from Phil Robinson-Author

    Highly Recommended for ALL AUTHORS!!!!

    There are a lot of books and workshops out there that talk about how to set up your social media. They talk about how social media is the way to promote your books, but most of them don't give you the kind of tips you can apply immediately and effectively. This is a well thought out and put together book that any author who is trying to promote their books, themselves and build a platform needs. I highly recommend.
