Our world revolves around Social Media and as a writer you need to make sure you’re in the loop. Not only can social media be a great way to get the word out about your book but it also provides a connection to your readers that was not there twenty years ago. Yet it can be pretty overwhelming sometimes, where do you even start? Don’t panic, you can start slowly — start with one or two and go from there. To decide which sites you should start with remember that there are some social media sites that are more useful than others. Below we’ve highlighted what we consider the “must have” Social Media accounts for authors but they are definitely not the only ones authors use. Ultimately you have to make the decision regarding what networks you will frequent.
