I always enjoy reading books by the bestselling author Lizzie Chantree, so when I noticed that she had written a non-fiction book: Networking for Writers I ordered a copy to see if the hints and tips might be helpful to me.

Networking for Writers helps writers make sense of the plethora of social media platforms out there in a straightforward organised way.
The author has created a user-friendly book and it is great, at last, to have a thorough book to guide writer through the social media maze.

The ideas are useful and allow writers to benefit both their readers and their businesses by taking part in social media with the writing community.
