I think we have great publicity tools at our fingertips - easier and more accessible than in the past. I still, however, am not crazy about the marketing aspect of writing. It is necessary, though, so I am grateful for these tools.
I know this new media is needed and helpful to most people. I probably won't be signing up for most of it. I guess I do like the good old days, at least the days when there weren't quite so many choices.
Hmm, for some reason I don't see the link, Susan. But to answer your question, I try to be as active as time allows. Some days it's more than others, depending on how independent my kiddos decide to be. :)
Susan: I am on LinkedIn, and Facebook. I find LI interesting. FB keeps me in touch with writers, and some people from church,and some from high school. I don't do the FB games, they are too time consuming.
Hi Karen - I don't like the time it requires, but I guess a book tour would be a lot worse.Hi Nancy - Yes, it's sometimes hard to decide which venue will produce work best for us.Hi Sarah - I'll have to check that out.Hi Quiet Spirit - I don't mess with the games either. I'm on Facebook and Twitter.Blessings,Susan :)
My apologies! I don't know why the link didn't come through. If I can locate it, I'll put it in the post.Susan
I love all new technology Susan, a lot of things have become easier and less expensive. But sometimes I think life was more simpler, more pleasant in the old days. Pro's and cons.
Okay, there's the link. Sorry about that.
Hi Marja - I guess there's always a trade-off. The Internet has made information readily available, but that can be both good and bad.Blessings,Susan :)
I have FB and that's my main tool. Twitter is second followed by Goodreads. Google + is on my To Do List but I'm in no hurry.
I am now spending more time on blogs and social media than writing. It can be overwhelming somedays. Merry Christmas, Susan.
Hi Stephen - From what I've observed, you're very involved with social media. I don't know much about Good Reads, but I'll have to look into it - someday.Hi Linda - Oh, I know what you mean! It does eat up a ton of time. I'm so glad I can finally comment on your blog. Maybe it's the new computer. :)Blessings,Susan
