Discoverability is essential for a new author. In an attempt to gain exposure to new readers I’ve started using social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. Of all of them, I’ve found Twitter to be the easiest to use, but Facebook has been the most beneficial.
I’ve learned so much from the myriad of groups I’ve joined on Facebook. It’s been amazing watching people share their successes, help others try to meet their goals, and dispense valuable advice. The indie writer community is wonderfully generous and I am so proud to be a part of it.
One Facebook groups I highly recommend is 20BooksTo50K. It’s a great resource for new and established writers. It’s based on the thread/book of the same name.
If you’re a starting (or even established) author, I would recommend you join Facebook and learn how to use it. I’m still not the best at it but I learn something new every day. I even have a Facebook Page, but I have to confess I haven’t made the best use of it so far. I need to determine what content I want to share on my page.
