I have been an admirer of Lizzie Chantree for some time now, always impressed by her books and online personality.
An excellent writer (I have read several of her books) Networking for Writers shows how brilliantly she manages everything else.
Writers all over the world need to read how Lizzie achieves so much, seemingly without much effort, and manages to stay sane!
I thought I had learned a lot in my eight years of writing/blogging, but after reading this professionally written book there is so much I hadn’t thought of before and implementing them all has to make me a better and hopefully, successful writer.
I found many helpful tips in most of the chapters, but chapter 13 – Marketing made Simple – will be the most important one for me. I found so many things that I have ignored in the past, thinking them unimportant and quite a few I never heard of before.
Life is a balancing act, making sure we simplify our marketing plan to ensure we make time for writing and marketing!
