How did you come up with the title of your book?

I speak on the topic of Social Media for business. Attendees are generally frustrated and overwhelmed by the amount they feel they need to do to be successful with social media. I titled the book, Social Media Overload, to help them solve those challenges.

What is your writing environment like?

I write in coffee shops. I need the energy of other people around me - I can’t write in solitude.

What is your favorite quote?  Why?

“Don’t die with the music still inside you.” Dr Wayne Dyer.

We can all find other things to do other than write, so we must make it a priority or it will never get done.

How has your upbringing influenced your writing?

My parents were both in the field of communication and helped me write in a style that was easy to understand. There are literally thousands of other social media / internet marketing books, but I say it in a way that everyone seems to be able to understand. I thank my parents for that gift.

What inspires you to write?

My clients and their challenges.

What do you consider the most challenging part about writing a novel, or about writing in general?

Like the gym, just doing it consistently.

Did you learn anything while writing this book?  If so, what was it?

I always learn when I write. I tend to do a lot of fact checking and a lot of research. My topic is always changing so we must change with it!

What have you done to promote this book?

I did a Birthday book launch and partnered with other authors to launch.  I also speak for a living, so I sold my book to audiences and meeting planners.

What are some of the best tools available today for writers?

Both can help you get things done in a quick and cost-effective way. I got the cover of my book done on for…you guessed it…five bucks.

Is there anything else you would like to share?

If you’re frustrated by a lack of results from your social media marketing, you’ll gain a lot from this book.
