Social Media Tough Love: Ten Tips for Authors:
It’s a conundrum…why would any author want to waste time on social media instead of writing? Because publishers rarely put energy into book promotion plans beyond the first few weeks of a book, that’s why. And then, when authors do take the leap, too often they use a push strategy in their social media efforts, sharing out messages without engaging with their audience at all. Social media professor Crystal King divvies out the tough love with ten tips for authors who really want to rock Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and more.
Please join us on Wednesday, May 19, 2021, at 1 pm PDT/2 pm MDT/3 pm CDT/4 pm EDT with marketing, social media and communications expert, and acclaimed author Crystal King as she presents Social Media Tough Love: Ten Tips for Authors (part one of a four part series).

Fireside Chat features content creators like Adventures by the Book who are dedicated to facilitating meaningful dialogue to keep us connected, much like President Franklin Delano Roosevelt did during WWII with his radio fireside chats.
Like a cross between a live podcast (except no video so you can stay in your jammies!) and a call-in radio show where you can hop “on-stage” and have a live conversation with your favorite authors and other readers, our Adventures by the Book Fireside Chats will feature book discussions, live chats with authors, NovelNetwork book club visits, and other engaging and meaningful literary experiences.
