how to use social media for business. The downside of this approach is that when you drop the social component and go full-bore marketing, you’re defeating the purpose of social media. People don’t want to feel like they’re being sold to; they want to have a conversation, and ultimately, call the shots.“Remember to stay true to the 70-20-10 rule: 70 percent of your Page’s content should be information that’s valuable and relevant to your fans; 20 percent should be content that comes from other people and 10 percent should be promotional.”

I am an independent self-publisher who sold three projects to major New York houses before starting my own company. I provide editorial services to a major literary agency in Manhattan and work regularly with authors at all levels of expertise. I can answer questions like these: What does "independent publishing" mean? Should I publish myself or use a service like XLibris? What is "print on demand" publishing? How do I publish myself on the Web? What are the best resources for learning about publishing? How do I find a literary agent? What are my chances of getting published by a major New York firm?
