Internet Research and Marketing for Writers and Speakers Even though computer literacy doesn’t come naturally to her, Carmen Leal mastered the computer and the Internet and plumbed its depths. Here she offers writers, speakers, school kids, people looking for support groups, and others a practical, user-friendly guide to Internet research and marketing. Leal starts with the basics — computer equipment and Internet access — and explains e-mail, chat rooms, forums, and newsgroups, search engines, and protocol. She goes on to point readers to hundreds of web sites that may meet their particular needs, and then helps them cerate and promote their own web sites. The book includes links to a special site for receiving updated information and web addresses.
