Indie Authors on Twitter

Over on the Kindle boards, somebody started a thread for people to exchange their twitter ids. It seemed like an interesting idea to me, so I'm going to ask here.

Give us a link to your twitter account, and maybe an idea of the kind of things you Tweet, and the kind of Tweeters you follow.

Here's mine: http://twitter.com/camillelaguire
I tend to tweet when I post progress updates from my blog, and sometimes book related news or information. (Rarely tweet more than twice a day.)

And to jump start this: I will tweet Free Smashwords coupons for both of my books as soon as I get to 100 followers! Such a deal!

Nice idea, Camille!

Me: http://twitter.com/ShayneParkinson

I tweet about random topics Sometimes writing-related, sometimes not. The weather, movies, I've seen, the state of the compost heap...

I saw the thread over at the Kindleboards as well. Here's mine:



I don't tweet often - seems kind of a waste of time with only a few followers. With so many other forums and social media tasks to keep up with, this is one that I let side. I suppose if I got more followers, it may be interesting.

I'm fairly new to twitter. Do you put the #amwriting tag at the end of your tweets if you want to get a wider distribution?

Thanks,

Deb

Tags like #amwriting can appear anywhere in the tweet. Some people embed the tags into their message to save letters. (i.e. they might post "I #amwriting my novel today.") I usually put it at the end.

People who want to read and follow the posts with that hashtag can click on the tag in any message that has it, or do a search on it.

You'll find me at Twitter on http://twitter.com/neilmarr . Limit myself to a max one tweet a day -- always book or ebook related. I'm following more (all authors or publishing houses) than follow me. Cheers. Neil

I've started to tweet more too here: http://twitter.com/dlmartin6 Now that I'm doing the author interviews over at my blog, I want to announce it every time a new one goes up. Today's author: David McAfee.

I'm a very intermittent tweeter, or is that twitter? It's mostly random stuff about books/movies I've seen read and news of my own books etc.

I'm at http://twitter.com/havyn

(Havyn is character from one of my books, so not as random a name as it seems, LOL!)

take care,
Annette

BTW, I've reached my 100 followers, and I'm now giving away a lot of books. I screwed up when I posted the coupons - I should have put some hashtags in there. (I may repost them, simply because people miss individual tweets a lot.)

I think this is a great idea. I tweet links to articles about the ebook revolution. I also tweet Bible verses that I come across that speak to my spirit. Below is a link to my Twitter profile.

Just started up again with Twitter. Haven't really established a "theme" yet. Probably announcements about current book and projects and observations about Life and Whatnot.
