    Although I'm not a writer, I am someone in the midst of starting a new small business so I was interested in this book which helps writers of all kinds better utilize and manage social media. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this book was a really good overview of the various social media platforms and offered very concrete and interesting advice and tutorials. I came away with a number of things that were new to me, particularly around the options that I don't use as actively as others.

I came away with a number of things that were new to me, particularly around the options that I don't use as actively as others. There is great advice, tips and tricks as well as specific tutorials all packed into this book! It covers managing Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Goodreads and more! It'd definitely a beginner's guide to social media and it packs a punch! If you're already actively using these platforms to help manage your business or career, some of it may be repetitive. But, if this is a whole new world to you, this is a fantastic resource full of great information! NOTE: Thank you to the publisher for providing me with an advanced reader copy for an honest review.

    Such is the importance of social media these days that all writers must scrutinise at least two, three books on the topic if they want make any kind of name for themselves. Joanne Mallon’s Social Media for Writers is one of those few books not to be missed. Information-packed, full of tips, names, links, pieces of advice, this is not a bedtime reading manual that you devour at one go. I found it best to read it slowly, and to keep it next to my computer so that I could test right away what I had Such is the importance of social media these days that all writers must scrutinise at least two, three books on the topic if they want make any kind of name for themselves.

I found it best to read it slowly, and to keep it next to my computer so that I could test right away what I had just read. One of the best aspects of the book is its absolute clarity and coherence. It introduces each part of social media, from Twitter and Facebook to your own website, which means that at the end of the book you’ve got an overall view of what the online world offers for writers. You can read the chapters in whatever order you like - as I did – and it’s easy to come back, to check again any reference you discovered before. Being this user-friendly, I think Social Media for Writers going to be my number-one reference for some time to come.

    Disclaimer: While I aim to be unbiased, I was given this book for free. I was also quoted within its pages as one of the author’s sources. Writing and social media go hand-in-hand these days, which is why I make a living from doing both. This book, then, is an invaluable guide for aspiring authors who want to find out more about getting their name out there – see, social networking allows you to make new friends and to connect with potential readers, editors and publishers, and so it’s a no-brain Disclaimer: While I aim to be unbiased, I was given this book for free.

For me, this book seemed to be stating the obvious, but then I’ve already got a good grip on how to use social – I think most authors of my generation do, and so the ideal reader here would be an older author who’s been writing for years but is yet to get their head around Twitter. There were a couple of minor formatting errors here and there, but the quality was pretty consistent throughout, and there were plenty of tips on offer here to anyone who’ll listen. It’s definitely worth reading!

    Thank you so much to Joanne Mallon and Goodreads for sending me a free copy of this book to read. I found "Social Media for Writers" to be a great help in navigating the busy (and sometimes overwhelming) world of social media. It is filled with helpful information to get you started and confidently using many of the social media platforms available today. The realistic point of view and sense of humor throughout made this an enjoyable read.

    This book is good for people who are not already familiar with social media platforms. They tell you how each platform differs and what types of content work well for each. For example - GIFS are for Tumblr, Pinterest is good for quotes, and Twitter requires a 2-way conversation. All good stuff. But if you already know the platforms and you want to bump up your game - this book is not what you're looking for. I would suggest "The Power of Visual Storytelling" for a more in-depth look at how to e This book is good for people who are not already familiar with social media platforms.
