Marian Schembari Interview – Why Social Media is Important for Authors

Welcome to the first of a series of interviews I will be doing! My goal is to share conversations with those doing interesting things in the world of publishing and media.

To start things off, I had a chat with Marian Schembari, who is working with authors to help them leverage social media. You can find Marian on Twitter at @MarianSchembari, and her website: MarianLibrarian.com

    yes, Dan Black and Marian Schembari…yes, authors do have to be directly involved, emotional and passionate about your work…always a studient…and even in social media. I also have a brand that I carry to all my books.

    The chatwithgod logo…I also have the business of the .com and the .org…….Charity is an amazing way of social media connecting. As I said, due to the global community, I try to use a variety of social media including youtube with awesome photoshots interjecting with book quotes. This gets another genre of clients. For me, networking with Linkin is highest rated…however, I love linking all or most of the social networks together. What a time saver. Writing is a part …yet passion drives me to learn the business of selling.. I did speak with ACSI years ago…at a conference. I have to say that if you could teach at conferences…this will hightened you face value. Yes, traveling is critical. I travel one month out of the year. We write multi-language material with amazon kindle you can liink internationally…at a click…when you are setting up your cost info log.

    Do we give our ieads away for free…yes, our art of writing is rich and awesome…we have to keep the main thing the main thing..on my charity site, I have 500 + volunteers online via our chatwithgod.org site…for prayer…

    however, on this site I give away “How to publish your book in the 21st century.” Itj's enable many authors to publish their boook. They have thanked me in their books and on their websites. As they work…it advertises for me. Our business and charity site lap over .com and .org due to the overlap of information. The webmaster works for free…and so much happens together…My book sells as we work together while helping others. LIfe is not to live alone. Charity allow a greater balance to my books. Over 80 countries visit our .com and .org site. I'm in the for the long haul…since 1999. Yes, do what you love…Marian…I don't make any money…in another job. I have to lead a very creative life…
