I’m on a mission to reclaim my time for book writing. I posted a speed-reading test so I can learn to read books faster, and I added an author hosting page to save on blogging time. Next comes decreasing time spent on other social media.
Twitter can eat a large chunk of time in what seems like a little peck, so I decided to start there. I also want to use my twitter time more effectively to promote children’s writers and literature. So here’s my question. How many children’s writers up through YA would like to participate in a weekly tweet exchange blog post as a means of cross promotion?
Rules would be simple:
1. Compose and test your tweet on twitter.
3. Agree to spend 10 minutes tweeting the other tweets in my comments each day of the week during an hour of your choosing. State which hour you will tweet (in eastern time, not mine but easy to remember) so other tweeters can pick another hour. If there are more than 10 minutes worth of tweets, then do one batch one day and a new batch the next until you reach the end and start over again. Nobody will shoot you if you can’t tweet during your chosen hour, but do tweet sometime each day.
4. If you see flaws with this plan or think it will help you too, speak now or forever keep your tweets in one basket. If you’d like to tweet this plan, please include my handle, @sherahart, and I’ll RT. If you want to follow me, here’s my twitter profile page link. I will give this idea a few months to generate interest before I give up, so keep tweeting if you want it to happen. It won’t take very many participants to generate 10 minutes of tweets per day.
If writers of adult literature want to take part and are willing to volunteer your blog as host for a particular genre, please say so and put your blog link in the comments. Just give me credit for the idea and a link to this post so children’s writers who see your post will know to come here.
Now on to the Magpie & Dilly giveaway, R.M Wilburn’s latest book, open through 6/19/2012. If you haven’t yet entered, you should read the character interview and you’ll want to enter. Oh, and my box of books and chocolate giveaway is open through 6/20 before it closes and a new monthly giveaway opens. Click the tab at the top and if you don’t win this time, come back next month and try again. I have loads of SF/fantasy books that need a new home.
One last thing, I have a real Amazon store you can go through to buy pretty much anything you want except adult only stuff. If I ever make a penny, it will go to funding my giveaways. Thanks for visiting and don’t forget to comment!
