What did I think?
Aimed at authors, but equally appealing to business owners and social media marketers, Networking for Writers by Lizzie Chantree is a well written, jargon free book. It can be read in one sitting or dipped into as needed through your writing journey, making it a great companion to sit alongside your work. Lizzie offers sound and up to date advice about networking and marketing your book. This includes paying attention to the changed circumstances of writing and publishing during a pandemic, which has left many of us unable to meet up in person. She gives her thoughts on different social media channels, and how to make good use of these, through drawing on her own experience.
Lizzie also shares her knowledge about creating and following a sound working schedule, and how she uses allotted time to interact and engage with like-minded individuals through social networking sites. She shares this advice in a positive, unpretentious manner. She also sets the book out in short and concise chapters that are easy to refer back to, should you wish to double check her advice on a particular point. This makes it quick to pick out pertinent information that will relate to your writing wherever along the line you may be.
I am extremely grateful to Lizzie for sharing her experience so clearly, and would recommend this book to anyone else who is either hoping to publish a book, or wishes to further their business through the use of social media.
