  • 1,000th Twitter Follower target reached!

    Twitter has been quite an experience since we actively started using our account a few months ago. Not only has there been a very steep learning curve to follow regarding the mechanics of the thing, but there has also been Twitter etiquette to 'pick up' in terms of how best to converse with others and attract more Followers. That will all be the subject of a later post.

    On 7th March we reached our target of 1,000 Twitter Followers - all genuine (no spam, no robots, no porn!), and mostly writers. We had tweeted a few days previously that we would have a 'prize' waiting for the lucky person who just happened to Follow at exactly the right time - a copy of Eight of Cups of course!

    So there was Elaine that evening, excitedly watching and waiting to nab the name as it came up and check out that he or she was genuine. And lucky for us indeed she was - Judith Arnopp, historical fiction author who lives in West Wales. If you want to find out more about Judith and her writing, her website is here: www.juditharnopp.com/ and her blog is here: juditharnoppnovelist.blogspot.com/

    Our Twitter following is growing all the time, and we're meeting some lovely people, sharing writing tips, tools and literary snippets. It's also provided us with a very fertile future reading ground as we've come across writers and books we had no prior knowledge about, and writers who will review and help with publicity. As we've said before and we'll say it again, Twitter Rocks!

    2,000 Followers target to aim for now!
