Read an extract from Networking for Writers.

I have always been fascinated with information and learning new things. Over the years, I’ve met lots of people who I now see as part of my ‘network,’ my group of interconnected friends and acquaintances. They have helped me to evolve into the bestselling author I am today.

I have had a very varied career path, and I believe that a lot of my success is due to the contacts I have made at every stage of my working life. The links can reach across decades and the process ebbs and flows both ways. This book has been written in uncertain times, during the global pandemic, but even now, when people are isolated and unsure, they have found new ways to connect, to reach out and communicate and to inspire each other with innovation and kindness.

I have written this book to help writers find their own network and learn how to communicate well with their readers and social media followers. In my book, I talk about how networking can help writers, author branding, Facebook groups, networking hours, hashtags for writers, social media timelines, book marketing and so much more.  I hope it will offer support to new writers, but also assist established creatives and writers, directing them towards new methods of establishing their writing brand and expanding their social media sites beyond recognition.

It sounds really useful, doesn’t it? The book will be available on October 29th but you can preorder now.
