Questions asked – and answered. Kai Viola-Wilson on her new book.

Dear reader,

You have probably seen the announcement of Kai Viola’s new book on Social Media that I posted. I had the opportunity to ask her a few questions about her book and her drive towards Social Media, and here is what she answered.

question
What got you so interested in all this social media and marketing?

Honestly? I’m a community driven person. As I was bullied as a child, so being able to give back to the community and support others actually feels right to me. And it turns out I’m quite good at it, so I thought I’d share what I know.

 

questionIn what way do you think is your book different from the many others that are out there?

I think it’s nuts and bolts, which a lot of the books overlook. It’s very focussed, so it’s designed to be as close as possible to what I thought people would need to do, at a minimum, to get their stuff out there.

 

So there you have a bit of insight on why she created this book. If you’re looking for social media advice, get this book. It will help you out and on.

12×12 Guide to Social Media – by Kai Viola

12x12black

One of the few things that people talk about, when talking about brand and social media is that it’s a minefield. People talk about everything from being completely overwhelmed, to not knowing what to do with their profiles. And so, I wrote 12 tutorials (and a couple of bonus exercises to help people.

Each tutorial contains an introduction, the ‘basics’, the exercise, and then a bit about what your ‘solution’ should be. They’re not designed to be the be all and end all of each network, but they are designed to support you if you’re struggling, or aren’t sure that you’ve covered everything.

I’ve keep the price low so that you can enjoy the book without feeling like you’ve had to pay a fortune for just a couple of tips too – though I could have priced it higher, I feel $0.99 is the right price for this.

Launching on the 28th February, until it’s available, you can pre-order from my blog page at Warpaint Marketing.

Do you know Facebook?

Dear reader,

I am convinced you’ve heard of this social media website called Facebook.

Alexandria Publishing Group Logo

 

Something you may not know is that most people of the Alexandria Publishing Group have their own presence there as well. Let me give you a little list of them with what you might find there. Perhaps you encounter something you like!

 

The page of Valerie Douglas. Valerie founded the APG. She’s a very prolific writer and has produced beautiful work in many genres including romance, fantasy and erotica. Have a look at her Facebook page, perhaps you’ll even ‘like’ it!

Then we have Renee Barratt, who says “The Cover Counts”. Renée is the one who creates magnificent artwork for book covers. When you are a writer who is looking for great material at a decent price you’d sell yourself short if you don’t take a look there.

Mary Ann Peden-Coviello is a writer and an editor for the APG. Are you looking for someone to nag at what you wrote, you’re in the right place with her. Don’t worry about the nagging, she’s a really nice person!

Donna K. Fitch is a wonderful person and writer who has produced several great books in the fantasy / paranormal / steampunk area. I’m currently reading her book Second Death and it’s wonderful. Do you like what you see here, then hop over and like more!

D Kai Wilson-Viola is our octopus person. She arranges a lot of things. She writes, she manages websites (looking for good hosting? Contact her!), and she’s a wizard on WordPress. I’m not listing everything she does, that would keep me typing forever.

Denise McGee is also a member of the APG. She’s written a very nice book called One Small Touch. If you are into suspense, romance and supernatural things, Denise is the one for you to visit. She’d like that!

Stephen King, known to most people as The Other Stephen King, is a great writer of fantasy and Science Fiction. He’s a nice fellow, his books are all in good humour, yet they possess grandeur, like his works in the Return of the Gods series.

Terry Simpson is also a fantasy writer, but his work is in the big, epic realm of fantasy. Author of the Aegis of the Gods Series and the Quintessence Cycle series, he also manages to be a very friendly and helpful person. Epic fantasy? Talk to Terry!

Kriss Morton is our Cabin Goddess. This may make you frown. If so, hooray for that. She’s a person who is into promotion and reviews. Wild at heart and mind, that’s Kriss, but when it comes to books she’s very serious.

That sort of completes my list. I hope it is informative to you and that you will discover some more books, covers, edits and promotions that you hadn’t heard or read about before!
