I love social media. Whether it’s blogging, Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin – or whatever social media platform is the new kid on the block – I love the way these tools can help us forge connections, build relationships and nurture communities of fans, followers and customers.

For the Christmas edition of my podcast, I decided to do things a little differently and interview two authors at the same time.
