Twitter - A Novel Idea (Literally!)


Calling all writers with a hot fiction book or manuscript needing promotions. Get a load of this out-of-the-box way to get exposure for your book on Twitter. It's pretty fascinating; I learned about it on Darren Rowse's (Problogger) Twitter-centric blog.

Darren says a few Twitter members are "publishing" their novels through Twitter tweets. Which basically means you're sharing your work at a rate of about two sentences at a time. If you've written a real page-turner, this'll keep 'em on the edge of their seats! ... Waiting for you to come back later in the day (or whenever) and type in another couple sentences.

If you're a writer, here's a nice way to gain viral exposure. If you're self-published through Lulu, BookSurge, or a similar POD service, this might build your following and stimulate book sales.

The Twitter crowd seems sprinkled with influencers. So who knows? Maybe a literary agent or traditional publisher will discover and enjoy your novel tweets, too.

I'm tempted to dust off my suspense novel and see what happens...
