Social Media Mayhem

Social media prompt from the 28 Day Author Blog Challenge: 

How are you using social media to promote your book? What aspect of social media would you like to learn more about? What are your next steps?

I use buffer to post auto-tweets in promotion of my books. During the day, I tweet about my blog here and there with automatic updates going out to my FaceBook wall.

You can follow me on Twitter here or find me on FaceBook here. Follow my blog to get automatic updates when I post, too! I put out a lot of useful information for writers, designers, and writers who design. You'll usually get five posts a week unless something major happens.

I would like to know a lot more about LinkedIN - find me here. I use it but not often. I was planning to get into it a bit more after July of this year. We'll see how that goes.

What I'm really counting on is word-of-mouth advertising. I know that once a few people read my books, they'll tell others. I have deep faith in my ability to turn a tale that is interesting, fun, and educational.

Release day is July 3rd for The Abigale Chronicles - Book Two. If you haven't read book one, go get it. It's just $1.99 for the Kindle version and $5.99 for the printed version!

As promised, the cover for The Abigale Chronicles - Book Two:


















Leave a little love and tell me what you think! I'm trying to use a different color scheme on each one and a little bit of a different design but I'm keeping the title elements the same for recognition purposes.

That's all for today, folks! Until next time, WRITE ON!

    I, like you, use a multitude of social media platforms and have been using social media for about 2 years. I love it and find the networking a very natural thing, but I know that not everyone is like that.

    And of course, like you, faith...where would we be without faith? :0)

    1. Hi Lisa,

      I try very hard not to let SN consume my day, either. But lately it has been. It all ends in 8 days though :)

      Faith is a wonderful thing!! Thanks for the comment!!

  2. Though I've been blogging for a while, I just recently started using twitter and google plus. There's definitely a learning curve. I haven't heard of buffer...going to have to check it out. And for whatever reason I'm opposed to linkedin. No concrete reason. It just offends me somehow.

    1. I haven't really warmed up to LinkedIN either. Dunno why. Seems a bit like a social network for executives? Yes, go check out buffer. It's AWESOMENESS. Thanks for the comment!

Play nice and have fun. If you're a jerk, I won't publish your comment. My blog. My rules. Thanks for taking the time to chat at me!
