One item that you really do require if you have a Kindle is a nice protective cover which also makes your Kindle easier to use, I would not be without mine.
I came across a great little company in Bournemouth that make some beautifully crafted covers for Kindles and iPads, which are all hand made in various colours and can be posted to any country.
I stumbled across Darwin as they follow me on my Twitter page
I have only recently started using Twitter and to be honest I wondered what all the fuss was all about. I now find it a very useful marketing and contact media tool and it is far simpler to use than Facebook, which I find is more geared to just social use.
You also get followers a lot quicker, but do not just add people randomly as I did at the start. If you do follow someone new it is a good idea to re-tweet some of their informative tweets, which will encourage them to follow you back.
Most of the people I follow tend to be in the literary world, so I get tweets about new novels, tips and advice. We also help each other promote our books and services, which is an added bonus.
If you are in business and are a little confused by social marketing there are some great people out there who can help you. Jo Harrison is a virtual assistant and social media manager. As I have said it is a great marketing and contact tool, I have already had a radio interview with Doni from Girls Guide to Paris and a some reviews on Vantastic France, through using Twitter for a very short time.
