Warning: Self Promotion, Social Media Marketing for Writers Book Tour

Many of you are familiar with my views on self-promotion. But for those that aren’t here is a link to my post.

It definitely makes me uncomfortable to be in the spotlight, but I see the necessity of it.

All this to say I’m launching my blog tour for my new eBook, Social Media Marketing for Writers. I’m really excited about this book, mainly because it wasn’t my idea.

The entire idea came from my publisher and friend, Eddie Jones. He’s been pushing me to get my notes together from the workshops I teach on this subject, and he’s the one who compiled the main part of the book. Without his expertise, guidance, and encouragement it would have never happened. Eddie, you are the best!

Social Media Marketing for Writers
I’ll be posting links to the blogs highlighting my book or interviewing me on the left hand side of this blog each day. I encourage you to visit these blogs—a lot of them are a little smaller—but they are each a great example of excellence and I’m humbled to be featured on them. Hopefully you’ll find some new places to hang out and make some new friends in the process.

Today’s launch is from my good friend and yours—Lynn Blackburn.

Don’t forget to join the conversation!
