As all of you know, social media is a great way to promote your projects. It also provides the opportunity to network with other authors. For example, Twitter was a great way to promote my FREE promos. I tweeted and then my followers re-tweeted. Therefore, if you are on twitter, please leave your Twitter name below. Build your follower base and learn from other authors. I'll start:

I've followed those above me.

I started a thread similar to this, but all my promotional ideas fall on deaf ears :( My idea was follow everyone (obviously) but then write a tweet you want tweeted: A Proper Charlie is storming the Kindle charts: http://amzn.to/zg9xp1 #romance #kindle #chicklit #KDP

The next (above) poster THEN writes his/hers own tweet for the NEXT poster to tweet and so on.

I've a few thousand followers so my tweets will reach a lot of people. Want to try that?

Yes I'll sort that out and tweet it tonight. I now remember promising to do that a couple of days ago, and forgot.

However will not forget this time.

Will also come up with something as a tag line for short scares.

Pass it on and I'll retweet-followed you all.
It's a good idea this- I followed an author in Liverpool and retweeted his promo-he did the same for me and so it grows.

Twitter Help:

For a while, I was confused as to the purpose of Twitter. Frankly, I felt overwhelmed by the need to have a large follower base. Regardless, in less than a year I built a great base. As a medical student, studying has overrun my ability to tweet as frequently as I did last year. Therefore, I use a free web program called, "social oomph" to schedule my tweets. Ideally, it would be great to tweet "live". However, my schedule doesn't always permit.

So, I wake up early in the morning and just schedule my tweets throughout the day and Social Oomph sends them. Its just a suggestion for authors who want to stay connected to Twitter but simply cannot at times.

Cheers!

I am continuing to follow everyone here who follows me; what an interesting mix of people and interests.

In order to download and read your work, I've ordered a new Kindle keyboard 3g; I hope to review as many works as I can. To me, a review is to hear and comment upon good, sweet notes rather than to point out the clang and error. Others can do that.

If you can hit one pure high note then you can do it again and again and...one day you will wake up to find you are a successful author in as many ways as you wish.
