I can’t seem to open a marketing magazine at the moment without reading about social networking websites. But are they useful for authors? And for what? Networking with potential readers or within the trade? Which are the best sites?
I’m on MySpace, and I’m also a member of asmallworld and pelime, both of which are invitation only to join. Pelime has a specific focus on people working within the creative industries and there are dedicated forums to discuss writing and publishing.
