Pinterest has allowed self-publishing authors to utilize the social media site in the marketing of their books, and readers to follow new books and old favorites from authors they love – as well as discover popular, new authors. Swanson is has published 13 non-fiction books with Outskirts Press, including her most recent, Jesus Eternal Friend & Savior and Faded Memories Anew.
Swanson, a resident of the East Coast, holds degrees in human services, psychology and health administration. Although her books largely focus on religion and Christian life (40 Days & 40 Nights of His Word and Heartfelt Connections), inspiration, family and relationships (Butterflies, Possum & Laughter), her books have run the range of categories from Christian fiction (The Chief’s Niece) to romance (A Heart of Courage & Faith).
Pinterest bills itself as “a tool for collecting and organizing things you love.” For prolific authors like Swanson, the popular social media site represents a growing promotional channel to earn additional exposure for their books and their author platform.
