Authors on Social Media

Authors on Social Media used to sound so far-fetched. But, there are multiple authors that are on social media, the question is whether they are active.  I recently did a survey asking authors if they were on social media, most said yes, but when asked if they are active the answer was kinda or That meant I share my book on social media from time to time, but I am not really active. Some authors think that social media is time-consuming, so they don’t really care to engage.

By becoming active on social media, it opens the door for a line of communication for readers. Most readers are pretty active on social media and always looking for new books to read. Think of your time on social media as time well spent. Don’t have a lot of time to dedicate to social media?  There are a couple options for you, schedule your posts or pay a social media manager to handle your social media for you. But if you are a DIY (Do It Yourself) type of person, try one platform, look around and share excerpts from your book. Help people understand why they should purchase your book. Do not post spam or tell people to buy your book on every post.
