5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Guide 10 Jun. 2015
The Amateur Authorpreneur was all I had hoped it would be and more! Sarah Jane Butfield lays out a simple, doable and effective plan for becoming a successful author. She covers everything from the basics of setting up social media accounts such as Twitter and Facebook to how one can utilize them on a daily basis for building a brand, solidifying a promotional strategy and boosting sales. This book is the perfect guide for anyone who is writing or has written a book. I plan on keeping it handy for quick referencing of important hashtags and tips for growing my Twitter following. I can't wait to see what she has in store for all of us in Book 3 of this series.

I have nothing but praise for this second in the series of Sarah Jane's marvellous `tool kits' for self published authors. Written in a highly accessible style, getting the basics in place using small bite sized tasks, pieces of information and actions, she demystifies the often daunting task of setting up as an "authorpreneur". From Facebook and Twitter to blogs and websites - even from acronymns to algorithms! - this wonderful primer is full of first-class tips and suggestions, and is - to my mind - essential reading for any indie author plunging into the choppy sea of self-marketing. Well done, Sarah Jane, can't wait for book 3!

By Ronald W. Sharp
This is a well-crafted, easy to understand guide to the marketing of books, especially those of the self-published variety. In it, Sarah Jane Butfield takes us on a journey that illustrates the value of Facebook, Twitter and blogs as tools of promotion, and steers us away from unwise practices relating to their use. I recommend this book to both beginners and those who need to know the ins and outs of do-it-yourself promotion

Whether you are writing a book or have been published a while, if you are at a loss how to manoeuvre in the social media worlds of Twitter, Facebook and Google this book has the answers.
Why use hashtags and @’s, why are they there, what purpose do they serve? Why share? Why give your books away free?
Are you considering if you should perhaps have a website or write a blog? Don’t know where to start, or which way to turn.
If you need answers to any of the above questions and many more you didn’t realise you wanted to ask, then this is the book for you!
