One of our Marketing Consultants will review the most important social networking platforms (Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, LinkedIn and Goodreads) and identify the sites that will work best for your book. Our PDF Guide will show you how to set up and manage profiles on each site show you how to use the sites to expand your visibility as an author.
