It’s been a bit of a quiet week on my social media feed – mostly because I was busy in Dubai and forgot to send out my normal number of tweets and messages so I’ve combined the Twitter and Google results into one this week. So kick back and enjoy this weeks best advice on writing, self-publishing and marketing from the writing community.
