This week, Ann Narcisian Videan (book shepherd, editor, author) and Albert Monreal Quihuis (author, speaker, Arizona historian, Hispanic community advocate) discuss effective storytelling through consistent and innovative use of social media. Ann and Al use their talent and experience to connect with their audiences and support other writers, too.
