I have a new book out! Well, I say book but it’s more of a mini book-ette since it’s only about 65 pages long. Twitter for Journalists, Authors and Bloggers is adapted, updated and expanded from my last book Social Media for Writers.
The social media book covers all of the main platforms, including Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn. But not everybody wants all that stuff and this new volume is for them. Being shorter it’s got a smaller price tag, so the RRP has been kept to a positively bargainous 99p.
I was surprised to discover that there isn’t already a book about Twitter for journalists. There are a few books looking at how Twitter is changing the world and how it’s reported. But I couldn’t find anything that took it back to basics and explained how to use it as a writer.
It’s easy to assume that all journalists are already on Twitter and using it happily and confidently. But as I found out from the workshops I’ve run with writers’ groups, that’s far from the case. Lots of people still just want to know what a hashtag is. If you’ve signed up to Twitter and never really got what all the fuss was about, or want to use it to promote your blog or book, then this guide is for you.
This book starts with the basics of how to tweet and builds up from there. The biggest section I’ve added is an action plan on How to attract your first 1,000 followers. Many readers of the social media book told me that they had used it to substantially build their Twitter network so I know that this plan will work.
How to get the book
Simply click on the cover image above and that will take you to Amazon where you can download it in a matter of seconds. If you’re in the USA then you’ll find the book here on Amazon.com
If you don’t have a Kindle then you can download the Kindle app to most smartphones, tablets and computers and use that to read Kindle books. I wouldn’t normally advocate reading a book on your phone, but this is only short so I think you’ll be fine.
So now the question is, what shall I write about next? Hmmm…..
