As a writer and author this book caught my attention so when the book blog tour came up I couldn’t type ‘yes please’ fast enough.
This book is fabulous. Reading it can be likened to sitting down with a good writer friend, in my head over a creative lunch. *I miss these so much.* Whilst nibbling lovely food your good writer friend listens to all your issues with struggling to sell books and coming up with marketing ideas. We all know selling books is not easy. As if by magic your friend says with a sly wink; “it doesn’t have to be that hard. Let me show you.”
You then spend the next few hours gasping and staring in wonder at what your good writer friend tells you. Suddenly your creative world doesn’t feel so bleak.
If you are struggling with thinking up new ways to sell books…check out this fabulous book by Lizzie Chantree.

Here’s my review:
I loved how Lizzie talked about all the good things which can come from writer networking. Until I read this book I didn’t really give thought to the value networking holds for a writer. It’s not only about sales but it’s about building your ‘bestseller support system.’ I couldn’t agree more with Lizzie’s quote.
One of the standouts is the way Lizzie talks about social media. She takes them all individually and gives you practical and easy tips. Sometimes we all need a book crammed full of social media hints and tips for authors. Well, this book covers them all – from Twitter lists to Pinterest Boards.
I loved the way Lizzie has written this book. Its just like a good writer friend would talk to you, in a warm and engaging way. She makes it sound so easy and you end up asking yourself – why am I not doing this?
The best bit is that Lizzie has put into practice all that she talks about in this book.
A fabulous read and I am going to follow Lizzie’s advice to see where networking takes me.
