  1. Overcoming Cold Feet . . . Beth Barany’s Twitter for Authors: Social Media Book Marketing Strategies for Shy Writers is a great little book. Coming from the perspective of a social media neophyte, I found Beth’s advice, examples, and web-link resources to be very encouraging. 

  2. Loved it! Beth’s Links have Links!! You’re an author. . . maybe you’re a previously Traditionally published mid-list author. . .or an emerging indie author. If you are just now coming to the realization that YOU are your marketing machine, you have come to the right book choice in Beth Barany’s clever little guide. ‘Twitter for Authors’ is chock-full of savvy advice, and links (some old, some new) – but all that give a perspective on where Twitter has been and where it’s going. 

  3. A must read for any author When I started reading “Twitter for Authors: Social Media Book Marketing Strategies for Shy Writers” I truly had no idea what to expect. I know most people say that about books but in my case it’s true.
