Hello everyone. Do you enjoy showing support to your fellow writers, creatives, readers and authors? Many of us are often looking for more ideas to help lift each other up and there are so many ways we can do this, especially during times of such anxiety like enforced lockdown. Hopefully this is easing in most places by now, but we can still offer encouragement where we can. I wonder if readers realise how much writers appreciate every book shared, review posted, shout outs given to family and friends, or book blogs posted. It can literally tip the balance from a bad day to a great one and it keeps us writing.
I run a networking hour on Twitter called #CreativeBizHour every Monday night 8-9pm (GMT). People pop by and offer support for each other’s creative businesses or writing and retweet each other’s work. We often trend and sometimes have millions of timeline views in one hour. To join in, just add the #CreativeBizHour to your tweets and replies to chat, so that everyone can see your work. The hashtag becomes a live clickable link. It is a great place to offer support to others by retweeting their work onto your timelines so that your followers can see their work. You could find help from the creative community there for your own blogs, books, products and ideas. It is all about teamwork. There are lots of fun discussion topics each week too.
I also have a Facebook group for writers and book lovers, where I share my latest marketing tips and everyone there offers advice, congratulations on successes and help with worries. Plus we discover great reads there! The group is called Lizzie’s Book Group. Join in everyone. I would love to see you all there.
Be the first to know when my next book is available! Follow me on social media for updates.
