Ian Sutherland is the crime fiction author of the Brody Taylor Thriller Series, novels that expose the darker side of the online world to dramatic and suspenseful effect.
Exploiting knowledge gained from his career in the IT industry, Ian’s thrillers caution readers on how dangerous the internet can be for the unwary.
Ian also takes advantage of his experience in technology in the way he uses social media to help drive awareness of his books.
With over 100,000 followers on one of his Twitter accounts, and still growing, Ian has figured out how to make Twitter power his book marketing strategies.
Ian shares many of his techniques in Advanced Twitter Strategies for Authors, his first non-fiction book.
