Social Media for Authors
How can authors consistently maintain a presence on popular social media sites? Learn if the demographics of your readers are on Facebook, Twitter, or other services, how to plan relevant social content based on analytics, and if automated services are right for you.

We'll also break down the mystery of blogging and help writers make smart decisions about their online social presence.


Tara Lynne knows her stuff and is happy to share her knowledge and skills with others. She's very talented and a great teacher! -Beth B.
