Social Media Tips for Indie Authors

Best Post of the Week

Grammar Mistakes, Fixes, and Writing Tips for the Excellence-Minded Blogger by Lisa Tener from AHREFS: “What are some of your writing goals as a blogger? Perhaps:

  • Get more people to read your posts?
  • Make an impact on your readers?
  • Start inspiring conversations?
  • Motivate your readers to take an action?

With any of these goals, correct grammar and quality writing matter. Good writing draws your readers in—and keeps them reading, sharing and recommending your posts to others.”

Note: Do you have a guest post strategy to expand the reach of your brand and find new readers and colleagues with whom to co-market your books? If not, read this post. It’s excellent.

Social Media Updates for Authors

Social Media Updates for AuthorsI hope you enjoy this week’s social media updates for authors. There’s a lot of information packed into today’s Weekly Roundup, including information on Facebook’s newest feature, the importance of video, and the introduction of Pronoun. Read and enjoy.


ALLi Watchdog Report: Pronoun  from Alliance of Independent Authors and by John Doppler:  “Pronoun’s streamlined interface for uploading and formatting ebooks will be a delight to those who find KDP daunting. The step-by-step guide prompts the author for any necessary information along the way.

“After selecting an ebook template and uploading your Word document, Pronoun converts your manuscript into .epub and .mobi versions which are yours to do with as you please. The setup process does not offer assistance in formatting your document, but a test document I uploaded with basic formatting converted cleanly, and yielded a professional-looking ebook in minutes.”

Note: To go directly to Pronoun, which I’m excited about, go to this website. I signed up for it and maybe write a post about Pronoun in a future post.
