Tim LewisTim Lewis is a self-published author from London who, this year, made the change from writing fiction to non-fiction.

Previously he's written in the science fiction and fantasy genres, and to date has produced three books in the Timeshock series and two books in the ‘Magpies & Magic' series.

His first non-fiction title is called Social Media Networking: How to Use Social Media to Get the Job You Want, Find Love, Get Business Success and Boost Your Travel Experience.

Tim is also the host of the Begin Self-Publishing Podcast and having interviewed many guests about marketing best-practice, he put many of those lessons into action with his latest book launch.
