I love interviewing authors after they finish a book. I hear pride, pain and creativity in their voices when describing their characters and plots. There is a tremendous amount of angst, drama, fear, late nights and joy while writing. I relish the stories about the book birthing process and am surprised when I search the web for the new author’s Facebook page, website etc. I come up empty handed.
However talented of a writer or a koi pond builder or basement re-modeler one may be, promoting and advertising their talents through social media is shockingly absent. Navigating the social media landscape requires ever-evolving technology skills, a working computer and a smartphone. And time. Most authors and business owners I have worked with, when faced with setting up their own Facebook account, Twitter page or Website for advertising have taken out a home equity line loan and plop thousands of dollars down at an PR agency, for a publicist that cannot return your calls. Or pays the 14 year old neighbor kid, who never gives them the password.
