On Saturday, October 3, I will share my insights on how authors can use social media to market their books and build a reader audience during a panel discussion on “Everything You Wanted to Know about Getting Published” from 12:20 p.m. to 1:20 p.m. at the fifth annual Capital BookFest in Largo, Maryland. Authors Kevin Johnson, Donna Hill, and Charisse Carney Nunes will also participate in the panel discussion held inside of Borders Bookstore, 931A Capital Centre Boulevard, Largo, MD 20774. For more information, visit www.captialbookfest.org.
I have prepared a social media bio for the event. See below. What do you think about it?

Leeke’s first Internet encounter occurred when she heard AOL’s “you’ve got mail” in 1995. It was love at first click! A year later, she began working for The Hamilton Securities Group, Inc., an investment bank and financial software firm, where she established an intellectual property protection program for the firm’s Internet products and services. Leeke served as an online content contributor for NetNoir.com’s Gospel and Women’s Channels from 2001 to 2002.
