Social media for writers

Spent a couple of hours yesterday with Caron Lyon of PCM Creative who I've awarded the challenge of co-ordinating my social media efforts and installing a strategy for using it.

I like working with people who really know their stuff and she is full of bright ideas for helping me use all these platforms efficiently.  That's the thing - for me it has to be practical and as easy as possible to do because otherwise I won't do it. 

What I'm looking for are a few places I can go and schedule appropriate text to go across a wide a spectrum of sites as make sense for me.  It's starting to come together and it has to because it's important that I can make it work for me, then I can pass on tips to others.

For more information about Caron and what she can offer go to


  1. I'll be interested in seeing how well you do. On the whole I've not been that successful with my efforts to promote my work using social media. Perhaps because I'm an anti-social pig at heart and people can see through me. I don't know.

  2. I'll post any results I have. At the moment I'm building a following slowly and that suits me but I do find it useful to share in a timely fashion any events, or updates. And I occasionally see people who comment in a postive way on my contributions which is always heartening.
