A weekly (or when I remember) update of ramblings, writings and book promotions.
I’m from the UK, but spend more months on the road with my husband, usually in another country. I am currently in Spain and enjoying the relaxed way of life. I sometimes write about the countries I visit, but mostly I blog about books and updates about my books, which are fiction and nonfiction.

Social Media is one of the fastest ways to promote your book and yourself to a world-wide audience of readers. It is also complex and time-consuming. It especially can be intimidating when you start out.
It certainly was a challenge for both of us when we first got involved in the indie author community on Social Media. We are still learning new things and best practices as SM is always changing and growing, but what we know, we will share.
With this book, we will help you Navigate the Maze of Social Media by sharing:
How to set up a plan and set goals
General useful tips for all SM platforms
How to set up different profiles on SM
How to use different SM platforms to get the most for your time and money.
