Memoir Writer's Journey

I am a memoir writer and a retired family nurse practitioner writing a memoir and a sequel about the power of hope through faith in overcoming emotional abuse, an alcoholic son and cancer. Hope matters and we are all enriched, enlightened and inspired when we share our stories. I blog about memoir writing/publishing tips and share stories of hope. I feature other writers in guest posts and book reviews.

Avoid Social Media Time Suck: A Blueprint for Writers to Create Online Buzz For Their Books and Still Have Time to Write by Frances Caballo

Avoid Social Media Time Suck: A Blueprint for Writers to Create Online Buzz for Their Books and Still Have Time to Write - Frances Caballo

If there ever was a need for a blueprint on managing time on social media without compromising precious writing time, it is now. Overwhelm is the operative word for anyone who wants to break into the publishing business today. Frances Caballo comes to the rescue with this practical, detailed plan for gaining control over establishing an online presence while preserving writing time.


She offers specific ways to schedule involvement on various social media channels, curate content that will help you stand out from the crowd, measure your Return on Investment (ROI), track your success through analytics and tips on building a community. One chapter is devoted to apps that help you stay focused on your writing and another chapter is devoted to starting and maintaining a blog. Her last chapter is a step-by-step guide for writers who are building a platform.


Her writing is clear and concise and specific topics are easily retrieved. She provides a glossary of basic terms at the end. I highly recommend this book as a resource for anyone—beginners and more experienced writers alike---who needs guidance in creating an engaging and manageable online presence. It is a must-have guidebook for writers who are seeking help with effective time management.
