Longridge Editors LLC proposed, constructed, and helps maintain Dr. Cole’s first Facebook page for one of his books,A Spiritual Life: Perspectives from Poets, Prophets and Preachers. Via the page, Dr. Cole not only helps the publisher market his book, but builds upon his already strong relationships with colleagues and associates in the academic and publishing worlds. He is able to connect to and support favorite pages of other writers, publishers, and institutions. This particular book is a collection of essays with multiple contributing writers, so the potential social media collaborations are abundant!
The page allows readers to select an official page for the book as one of their own personal profile choices in the favorite books category. Increasingly, writers need to find new media methods for delivering access to their work online. Dr. Cole was so pleased with the results of his book page that Longridge Editors LLC was given the privilege of creating an author page to support all of Dr. Cole’s books.
