The Bird is the Word: Tweet Your Way to the Top with Twitter and Sell Books More "Cheep-ly" by author Leilani Anastasia is a brief book on the ins and outs of garnering a larger following as a self-published author in the world that most everyone knows as Twitter. The Bird is the Word unfolds in a friendly tone that easily helps readers to soak up the material within it quite effectively. Statistics are provided on Twitter that the average person would not be privy to, and readers will find them to be quite educational. The format of the text makes it a calm and enjoyable read for the eyes, with just the right amount of spacing.
As a self-published author myself, this book was right up my alley. I was able to acquire a lot of tips and advice from The Bird is the Word by author Leilani Anastasia. I am one of those millions of accounts on Twitter that barely interacts, having been more of a user of Facebook for my personal use and business use. I definitely think that from what I’ve read I will be able to implement some of the guidance that was given within this book and put it to use in my own life as a self-published author. What lies inside this book makes me feel less afraid of Twitter. I wholeheartedly recommend The Bird is the Word if you are a self-published author, or an author looking to grow your reader following and who finds Twitter to be unknown territory. Have no fear, The Bird is the Word will make the transition a bit easier; you won’t regret it.
