Facebook can be a really great social media platform for getting your book and your message out there and for reaching a wider audience. However, there is a right and a wrong way to do it. Facebook uses algorithms, an automated machine, to score its users either in a positive or a negative way, so your choices and interactions matter. (These are similar to the algorithms or computer programs that Google and other search engines use to rank your web content.) It matters because the higher your score, the more Facebook users you’ll be permitted to reach.
For many Author Academy Elite authors, the journey doesn’t stop at publishing our books. We have dreams of doing more, both to inspire our vision of our potential and to inspire the potential of others. Author April Tribe-Giauque dreamed of taking her story of survival and perseverance to another level by helping other abuse survivors tell their stories. Today, not only is she a soon-to-be twice-published author, but she also runs a successful ghostwriting business that allows her to further pursue her writing dreams. I sat down to have a talk with April this week about her book Pinpoints of Light: Escaping the Abyss of Abuse and how that launched her into her current success.
