Twitter promotion tips for authorsTwitter is a great way to promote your book, allowing you to share bite-sized content with your readers across the globe. But Twitter can be tricky, too! It took me a few years to really fall in love with Twitter (many of those months spent ignoring it altogether), but now I prefer Twitter to Pinterest, Facebook, and all the other social media platforms I'd just as soon forget. If you’re new to Twitter, I want to help you hurry through the Twitter growing pains — so you can avoid wandering in the Twitterverse wilderness for months or years like I did. To that end, I’ve compiled some articles on Twitter promotion tips, etiquette, and more. Some of them are from CD Baby’s DIY Musician Blog, so they deal specifically with music promotion, but the same concepts can easily apply to books and poetry — just substitute the word "author" for "musician."
At this year's Romantic Times convention, I interviewed the New York Times Bestselling romance and mystery author Jennifer Ashley, who's published over 30 books. Romance readers, in particular, are especially voracious, and it's a challenge for writers to keep up with their demand (they easily can want to read up to four novels per year by the same author!) I asked her if she had any writing ideas which have helped to become so prolific.
