We belong to a wonderful, supportive group in WWW, and no one cheers louder when one of us signs a contract, gets an agent, publishes a book or receives an award.
But how many of us go that extra step to help our fellow authors get the word out beyond WWW’s perimeters?
I know, we are all so, so very busy trying to keep up with our own
It’s really quite simple. Most blogs have the social media icons available, and all you have to do is hit Google+, Facebook, or Twitter and it’ll post for you (if you’resigned in).
And when you’re procrastinating (you?—Never!) by scrolling through Facebook, when you see a book launch or announcement by a fellow WWWer, hit “Share”. That way, her announcement will go out to all the people who follow you. And if one or two of your followers also hit “Share”, and so on, it might start something viral. You just never know what benefits will come back when you “pay it forward.”
It really only takes a few seconds, so especially with our WWW blogand the posts on our Facebook page, please help each other out by hitting the button.
