Let’s Get Digital 2 Is Out!

‪Writers‬! The new updated edition of David Gaughran’s Let’s Get Digital is now available at Amazon. I’ve learned a lot from the first edition, and I’m sure a lot of other ‪authors‬ did too, so make sure you get this updated version with all the latest bits of information on how to launch your writing career.

“Let’s Get Digital covers everything from how the disruptive power of the internet has changed the publishing business forever to the opportunities this has created for writers. It gives you practical, hands-on advice, sharing the very latest best practices on editing, cover design, formatting, and pricing.”

Also:

“It gives you proven marketing strategies that won’t eat into your writing time and are actually effective at selling books. It also shares tips on platform building, blogging, and social networking, and explains which approaches are best for selling fiction versus non-fiction, and what writers should really focus on.”

There are plenty of other reasons, too, why you should get Let’s Get Digital. Go check it out, read what it is all about, read the reviews. It’s a good book to have as your partner when you venture into the publishing unknown.

I’m certainly updating my old copy.
