My Thoughts

I'm one of those writers who struggles with networking ... I haven't got the hang of Hashtags and I can never think of anything exciting to say on Facebook or Twitter ... then there's Instagram and Pinterest ... well I'm stumped. 

Lizzie's book however is simply written (even dinosaurs like me can understand it.) It's informative and with short snappy chapters it's easy to dip in and out of. 

If you're an author who needs help with branding ... then look no further.  Networking for Writers will elucidate the whole thing and make it easier to interact on social media in a meaningful way. 

The section on procrastination was a welcome read for me as I am so prone to this. It's starting to write that kills me - once I'm there typing, it tends to flow. However, that's after umpteen coffees, faffing about and generally avoiding what I really want to do - WRITE! 

There's something in this book for everyone and it's not going to take ages to read. You will be able to implement any changes or ideas from the book in your own time. 

A useful tool for writers aiming to expand their readership and presence through networking.
