The 5 Fingers To Social Media Learning

See on Scoop.itEBook Promotion and Marketing

5 Finger Social Media Learning We all know how important Social Media is and we all know that it HAS to be a part of your blog or business marketing game


Penelope‘s insight:


I remember names by “associating” the person’s name with a picture. This picture should be an easy way to remember your social media “dos” for building up your community that will like your books–and you as author.

OK, class, here are the 5 Fingers to Learning Social Media:

o Index Finger – Know Your Goals

o Middle Finger – Share the Luv

o Ring Finger – Build Your Community

o Pinky Finger – Share You Share Yours

o Thumb – Be Supportive and Helpful

Now you will be looking at your hand in an entirely new way. Just make sure if you mark it up, you use a washable marker! 😉

Margo Berendsen: Love story plots, or 13 ways to mess with your characters

See on Scoop.itWriting for Kindle

Penelope‘s insight:
Are you considering writing a romance novel for Kindle? They are hot sellers, and you’ve got countless romance genres to choose from. If you are stuck for ideas, this excellent post will jumpstart your thinking in the area of love.

This author gives us Love Story Plots, or “13 different ways to mess with your characters.” You can even cross over into the paranormal romance genre. (Movies: “Avatar” or the “Twilight” series).

If you are considering the YA (young adult) romance genre, a great example are the Kindle book covers of a very successful romance novelist, Rachel Hanna. Make sure that you aim for a great plot that appeals to your chosen audience (this may take some research), and an eye-catching book cover. Here’s an interview that I had with Rachel recently. You can listen in to get some ideas of your own, or just take a peek at her beautiful covers. Her audience loves her!
