I think I've added everybody-if not send me a follow and I will.
BTW this is a good idea- one bloke followed me yesterday who had 250,000 plus followers...

Don't forget to RT people's book promos and when you do a promo don't forget to add hash tags!

Think we'll all end up just retweeting back to each other and chasing our own tails? Good exercise, huh? LOL!

Got a free promo this Wed/Thurs for my new novel 'Tabnit Gisgo'
Any RTs will be gushingly acknowledged!
Be sure to post your promo dates or better still DM me and I'll do the same.

Just read your blog Jenny- good advice- yep don't forget to hash tag!

Alright Matt I've followed you

Question re hash tags- when I search #histfic for example my tweet isn't coming up- Am I doing something wrong?

Jen, thanks for the advice and link to hashtagging; gotta practice! I think there are some great examples from some of our fellow authors on Twitter as well.

Direct message-it's so the person you send it too is the only one to see your tweet- access it via the little envelope icon- it'll only appear though if they're following you

Thanks, Mark, one more question and I will be a Twitter expert...how do authors post what looks like an abbreviated link to their work? I keep posting a long link and it looks really awkward (I do not like looking amateur!). Do you see what I mean? I cannot copy one, but it looks like this: amzn.to/Ax4pxa rather than my http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005X0VCL8
