Are you a writer?

Are you on social media?
Twitter? Facebook? Instagram? TikTok? Snapchat? Clubhouse?

The list is endless isn’t it? How the heck are you supposed to find time to write a book and stay active on all the social media channels, write blog posts, send newsletters…. AARRGGGHH 😱


I know, I completely get it. But here’s the thing. You don’t have to be all things to all people. You CAN’T be all things to all people.

Here’s the good news… There is a tribe of loyal readers, listeners and fans out there already waiting to hear from you. It’s true, I swear.

When I sacked all that in and took up writing full time I quickly realised that writers face exactly the same dilemma – hell, I face exactly the same dilemma, so in a series of posts I’m going to share with you all the tips and tricks I’ve accrued over the years for creating compelling content that attracts likes, interactions and shares which will, in turn, raise your profile and help you sell more books.
