Social Media for Authors: How to Get Help

Ask any writer  what their life is like and they’ll tell you it’s not easy.  In the next breath they’ll tell you that they can’t imagine doing anything else.  It’s a rock, a hard place and a crevice all at the same time, but when writing goes well, an author will also tell you that there’s no feeling like it in the world.

However, actually writing the book is a small part of the whole exercise these days. Gone are the days of guaranteed launch parties, book signings and sitting on panels. In fact, many authors get none of those things unless they arrange it themselves.  In fact, many publishers don’t even DO those things for their writers any more, unless you’re Marian Keyes. (Love you Marian!)

Many authors are now in the position of beavering away at their book, but not finding time to keep their profile up there alongside the competition. Landing a book deal suddenly means you need a Facebook page, a Twitter account, preferably a blog, contacts galore, an Amazon page, a Goodreads account and engagement with readers. And that’s just for starters.
