Joselin Linder is the author of The Family Gene, her memoir about the deadly effects of a unique genetic mutation on her family, as well as their efforts to stop it. In part one of a two part conversation, Joselin, Sean, and Nicole discuss how to effectively build a social media following, the perils of accidental tweet-jacking, the book marketing potential of Instagram, and the pros and cons of Twitter vs Facebook for both personal and professional use.
Sean also shares a social media tip about not talking about your own campaign 24/7 while crowdfunding, and we conclude with a discussion of our current favorite things including the latest Run The Jewels LP, The Alamo Drafthouse and House of Wax Museum and Cocktail Bar, the film version of Fences, Carrie Fisher’s The Princess Diarist, Roller Lash, and Billy on the Street.
The Family Gene comes out March 14 on Ecco/HarperCollins. Come to the book launch party on Monday, March 20th at 7:30 PM at Greenlight Bookstore in Fort Greene, Brooklyn!
This conversation was recorded in late January, which is why certain references (Viola Davis winning a…Golden Globe?) are so dated.
