Twitter

If you’re like I am, it took you a while to get involved in social media and I’m still learning about how to use it for book marketing. One of my goals for marketing: Use Twitter to develop relationships with my possible readers.

Taking advantage of Twitter: (my personal goals)

  •             Schedule posts in advance
  •             Put a share button on your blog so it can be ReTweeted
  •             Most people spend time on Twitter between 10:00am and 2:00pm. (I calculate the time span for the United States, but in truth it is between     those hours somewhere in the world.
  •             You can repeat announcements for seminars, webinars, conferences, and book releases periodically as long as you don’t harass your        followers.

These are only a few suggestions. Adding one thing  at a time makes it easier. Good luck with your book promotions!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to All

This is Christmas week and my favorite time of the year. I love the music, the Christmas movies, and getting together with friends and family. Most of all I love celebrating the birth of Jesus and what that means to me and others.

2009 has been an amazing year of book releases under my own name – Rebekah Redeemed, Shelter from the Storm, and participating in the anthology Flash Tales: An Adventure in Words. One of the books I ghosted became a best seller in Canada.

I’m hoping that everyone will have a wonderful 2010.
