Every Writer Needs a Tribe Cover ImageIf you’re looking for a good, swift kick in the backside along with some heartfelt advice, Every Writer Needs a Tribe is the book for you. Jeff Goins demystifies use of social networking to build a relevant author platform. Goins gives specific advice on finding your target audience, the importance of engagement versus numbers, how to blog effectively, and when to stop revising.

He gives lots of food for thought as he breaks the process of building a tribe down into manageable chunks. The chapter headings convey the gist of the content well. Here are a few: Stop Waiting to be Picked, How to Start Building a Platform, The Five Types of Platforms, The Hard Truth About Writing, Getting Started With a Blog.

I’m Janalyn Voigt, an author, speaker, and former social media mentor. DawnSinger and Wayfarer, the first two books in my epic fantasy series, Tales of Faeraven, released with Pelican Book Group and will be followed by at least two more installments. I’m also working on a romantic suspense novel set in an Irish castle, but then historical fiction has a grip on me too. Being unabashedly multi-genre makes me into what some might term a reluctant rebel, but I prefer to think of myself as a storyteller.
