Social media for authors

While still researching my forthcoming post on book social networking sites, I wanted to share this video with you. Thanks to Sarah Caldwell of Princeton University Press for bringing it to my attention. I think it’ll be required viewing for the next new author with whom I start working – just so s/he’ll be forewarned of the phone calls to come.

    OMIGAWD!! This is so how I once was. Thank God I found Ruth Seeley and And no, I’m not her brother or a lifelong friend, I’m a bona fide client who has benefited greatly from Ruth’s expertise (and if you don’t believe me, e-mail me and I’ll send a notarized sworn document to this effect).

    LOL – Andrew – thank you. I had to post this partly because it was funny and well deserving of a Moby, but also because it was just so true. It’s been nice getting your emails saying, ‘oh, I see what you mean about LinkedIn’ – proves you’ve been listening.

    I have no idea how I landed here – but I’m glad I did. Thanks for sharing the video – so funny – sad, but funny. I have SEVERAL people I’m sending it to – today. no – seriously – today.

    Glad you liked it, Phyllis – it was just too good not to post, especially since it reminds me of how bewildered I felt when I first started trying to wrap my head around social media – only to discover I was already a ‘power user.’ All righty then. 😉
