Anita’s neetsmarketing blog on social media for writers and book marketing was launched in January 2015 with first (and most popular) post A Beginner’s Guide to Twitter for Writers, (re-written in 2017, and again in Oct 2019), and her posts are inspired by questions asked by clients and course attendees. Several authors have written informative posts about social media and book marketing for this blog including: Liz Fenwick, Sue Moorcroft, Jane Holland, Alison Morton, Talli Roland, E.M. Powell, The Romaniacs, New Romantics Press, Julie Stock, Liz Fielding; and book blogger Anne Cater has answered questions about the Book Connectors Facebook Group for book bloggers and authors. Anita’s writing and social media blogs were mentioned in the October 2017 issue (192) of Writers’ Forum magazine by Della Galton on her Dear Della advice page. Jessie Cahalin of Books in my Handbag Blog said, ‘Anita’s blog posts about social media provided me with a virtual compass for my social media adventure. I now have over 15k followers on Twitter and have recommended her courses to many authors who required a boost with their marketing.’
In March 2018, Anita wrote a post for Emma Darwin’s blog, Overcoming the Social Media Fear (as a writer). Anita was a finalist in The Write Stuff competition at The London Book Fair in April 2018.
