I found this book to be repetitious. Lamb gets her point across on the first try, but then she repeats it several times throughout the book. Should I brand myself using my own name? No doubt about it after reading the advice more than once.
So if you don't mind figuring things out for yourself, you can save a few dollars by purchasing this book. But if you'd like more details or step-by-step instructions, buy WANA.
This book has a ton of superfab scoop to help you make the most out of your brand via social media! And Kristen presents the scoop with tons of LMAO humor!!!
She totally "gets" that it's about the relationships we make via all our online communities, and that it is the community-building aspect itself that makes social media extend your brand in super-synergistic ways!!!
A must-read for every author who wants to build his or her reader-base.
"What I have observed over the years is that very often, the personalities that are the most creative also tend to be free-spirits who flutter around like fruit flies with severe ADHD high off a case of Red Bull." ~Kristen Lamb, Are You There Blog, It's Me, Writer"
Yes! Finally, someone who gets what it's like to be me! It's taken me years to develop anything close to writing discipline and even that comes and goes. Two years ago I realized I had more started and unfinished projects than finished ones. I decided to focus on one project at a time before moving on to anything else.
Not only does Kristen understand writing from a business oriented side, she also understands what it is to BE a writer. She doesn't talk down to you as a writer or sound snooty, but instead uses humor to help illuminate common pitfalls writers run into, oftentimes using her own mistakes as examples. Full of tips and solutions for common problems like meeting word counts, dealing with the "negativity monster" inside each of us, and the best ways to reach your reader audiences are just a few. This book is jam-packed with some of the best writing advice I've ever seen. Even Stephen King's memoir "On Writing", long a favorite among writers, doesn't come close to the practical information in this book.Read more ›
