Forward written by NY Times Best-Selling Author and Co-Creator of Who Dares Wins Publishing Bob Mayer "I wished there had been a step-by-step guide for writers on how to not only do it technically, but do it content-wise. This book is the answer to that wish." Social Media is more popular than ever. As society becomes more and more technologically advanced, people are seeking new ways to interact. Humans are social creatures. Relationships and community are vital to our survival and our mental and emotional health. Writers, published and unpublished, fiction and non-fiction are hearing words like platform and brand with increasing frequency as the publishing paradigm shifts into the 21st century. The world around us is changing faster than ever, and publishing is certainly not immune. There are more opportunities for a new author today than there has been in the entirety of human history. Yet, the flip side of that reality is, with thousands and thousands of authors with books and blogs, how can a writer ever hope to stand apart let alone succeed? This book will show you how. There are countless social media experts, but Kristen's system is specifically designed to meet the unique needs of a writer. Take charge of your future today. You have great books to write, and don't have time for rookie mistakes that can cost you years of rebuilding your name, brand, and platform. Kristen's method is simple, effective, and helps you harness that same creativity you apply to your writing and harness it to build you social media platform. Best part is you don't even have to be a computer expert or know anything about sales. This system is designed to change the writer's approach, not the writer's personality. And the best part is you have help. Remember, We Are Not Alone.

Much to the relief of prospective writers, there are no mandatory requirements that need to be fulfilled in order to become a writer. Becoming a writer does not require prospective writers to earn any university degrees nor professional credentials. Becoming a writer is therefore achievable at a young age and often requires someone to possess ample writing skills. If someone lacks solid writing skills then it will undermine their ability to become successful at a writer. Becoming successful as a writer is no easy feat to achieve and is a unequivocally a cumbersome goal to accomplish, especially since the writing market is hyper competitive. Much to the benefit of prospective writers, it is possible to become a profoundly successful writer even if you do not work for an employer. Even though writer often prefer to work for employers, such as magazine publishing companies, newspaper publishing companies, and media conglomerates, writers have the autonomy to work in a self-employed capacity if they so choose to do so. The advent of social media has rendered it possible for self-employed writers to be profoundly successful since they are able to reach out to over 8,000,000,000 through social media platforms which are global digital distribution platforms that their audiences can easily access via mobile devices and computers.

The arduous challenge of diligently performing the writer job entails being able to garner ample insightful information about newsworthy stories that competitor writers have not already reported in their news articles. When an exorbitant amount of competent writers report on the same newsworthy stories, it can become all the more arduous for your news articles to build traction and stand out from other news article of writers if your news articles does not provide the readership with anything new that they did not already know about the newsworthy stories. The lofty challenge of diligently performing the writer job not only entails being able to garner ample insightful information about newsworthy stories that competitor writers have not already reported in their news article, but also entails being able to write news article that are more intriguing than the news articles of other writers who may even be able to report on a newsworthy story more expeditiously than you are able to do so. Trying to ascertain additional insights about newsworthy stories that were other writers were not informed of can be an ineffably cumbersome challenge, especially if interviewees are reticent about providing additional insights about newsworthy stories.
