One of my favorite aspects of working in book publishing is my involvement in social media. I absolutely love crafting Tweets! It’s so much fun coming up with fun and unique ways to promote the books I’ve loved working on and want the world to know about.
Social media is also important to me as a writer. Even before an author publishes a book, she must have a “platform”—she must be cultivating readers interested in her expertise and enthusiasm on a given subject. I’m on this blog, Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest so I can share with you my latest obsessions and ideas, give you a little sneak peek into my so-called literary life, and hopefully inspire other writers and readers to do the same. The world’s a lot cozier when we know we’re not alone in our endeavors.
That’s why I’m also addicted to following other social media gurus. One of my favorite is DKNY PR GIRL.
I love reading her #PR101 tips and her blog in general. If you’re just starting out in social media, check out the social media tips she gave to Teen Vogue.
Dear readers, what social media platforms do you use? Will you do me a favor and post them in the comments section? I’d love to subscribe/follow/friend you! xoxo
