*NEW* Buy my new ebook – Get More Out of Twitter – for writers and all creative people…

More than ever before, publishers expect writers to take an active part in marketing their work and nurturing their online profile. Your online author presence can make the difference between your book being a success or sinking without trace.

You may be already blogging, tweeting or building your author platform, or you may feel it’s all a huge distraction from the business of actually writing.

Whatever your position or level of competence (or confidence) I can help you build and maintain an effective writer presence on the web – not just for promotional purposes, but as a connected, valuable member of the reading and writing community.

Empower yourself with the knowledge – my ebooks How to Use Twitter and Get More Out of Twitter will help raise your social media profile, build useful connections and make the best use of your precious time!

Allow your readers to connect with you

Your readers are looking for you online – are you there? What’s being said about you? Wouldn’t you like to play an active part in that, or are you happy to let the conversation happen without you? Connecting with your readers is a two-way process – develop a trusted group of loyal readers and you will be connected to a reader network in a far more powerful way than through traditional publicity alone.

Raise your profile in the industry

So many writers pay no attention to the social web, so there’s huge potential to stand out, be seen and heard, catch the eye of publishers and the ear of editors and agents.

Building your author platform is a long-term project – results don’t happen overnight. All you have to do is start NOW and in a year’s time you’ll wonder why you waited so long.

I offer social media ‘surgery’ sessions and group training. My face-to-face work is in Sussex, London and the South East, with additional support as required via Twitter, email and phone.

I occasionally take on individual clients for one-to-one coaching and/or ongoing mentoring. If this interests you please contact me for details and availability.

Drop me an email or call me on 07888 693525 and let’s have a chat about how you could benefit from my social media help.

    I’d like to invite you to be my guest expert on a recently launched podcast, Book Marketing Mentors​ ( aimed at helping authors with ideas to market their book.

    Every week I feature a marketing maven who’s willing to share proven strategies, simple tools, ideas, and tips that are easily implemented.
    It’s a 30 minute fireside chat style interview recorded via Skype. You’ll have the opportunity to make a plug for your products or services at the end of the show.

    ​I know you’d be a great fit for the program talking about blogging for authors to help enhance their credibility.​

    Here’s a link to my calendar ​to schedule your interview slot, provided of course, you’re willing to accept my invitation. (

    With many thanks in advance for your consideration.
