Lead Me to Success in Publishing by Melissa G. Wilson
The world of publishing is changing, and you’ve already begun to realize it. While there are still the same authors on the same tables at your local bookstore, there are other names that are showing up online and in your email inbox. But how are they getting attention if they’re not doing publishing ‘the way it’s always been done’? For a thought leader like you, you already have bigger ideas about how the world should, rather, how the world COULD work to support the cutting edge thoughts you want to share. You’re not interested in simply doing the same old things because you’re not interested in the same old results. In the past year, you’ve noticed how social media has changed the way we interact and the way we share information. You’ve seen Facebook turn into a sort of gathering place and Twitter become the first place where thoughts are born. But you want to publish. You want to take your ideas a step further and you’re not interested in spending a lot of money or sending out hundreds of proposals. “Lead Me to Success in Publishing: 101 Ways” is the book for you.

Social media is ever expanding and there are always new options you can explore in terms of creating awareness of your book and your ideas. That said, it could also seem a little overwhelming when your
first starting out.
Instead of trying every possible social media outlet, it’s often a better idea to find a few that you find simple (i.e. Facebook and Twitter), and then when you have a following there, thenmove onto new options.
Tip #42: Google+
Like Facebook, Google+ is a place where you can set up a profile and share information with others who are in your circles. This service is unique as it allows you to create different levels of engagement, depending on what you want to do.
If you want to share certain pieces of information with friends, you can by placing them in your friends circles. Or you can create other circles that allow you to target your ideas to the audience you feel will benefit the most.
