  1. I need to organize literary agents into tweetdeck and start following them. I plan on grabbing out all my old rejection letters and looking up the agents I queried first. I just keep getting distracted and forgetting. Smooth, right?

    Awesome that you’re on Twitter! I’ve met some really neat people there. 🙂

    1. Just pull up the people I follow and you’ll find more than a few people worth following. I’ve met some really neat people through this blog. 😉 Or you could just e-mail me and I’ll throw some names at you.

    1. I was thinking about Twitter for about six months now but for some reason was reluctant. After reading the story behind you signing with your agent (I follow your blog from afar.), I realized I need to stop procrastinating and get my butt on Twitter. I guess that makes you inspirational. Thanks for stopping by. And congrats, again! 🙂

  2. Twitter can be a lot of fun. I’ve met some great people on there too. I’m probably going to look at your following list and see about which agents you’re following I should follow too. I’m also thinking about unfollowing some spammers who weren’t always spammers but not it seems like all they say these days is buy my book, buy my book, buy my book. Boring…

    1. I guess I will make a list and send it to my peeps. Keep an ear to the ground…on second thought who knows what kind of thing are on Twitter’s ground. Gross, just gross.

  3. Great that you’re on twitter (and Cliver Barker is one of your followers – nice!). I have an account but don’t do much with it – maybe I’ll take my cue from you and actually start tweeting. 🙂 Have fun with it!

    1. I know, I totally looked you up. Not that I’m stalking you or anything…really, I’m not…just poking around Twitter is all…yeah, that’s the ticket. 😉

      I think you hit the nail on the head. The point is to have fun. Like I said, I use it to supplement my blogging. So far I’m digging it.

  4. Interesting. When I tried it awhile back, I was followed by a ton of porn bots. Do those go away with time? Are you getting those followers too? Had to guess you were by your description of the girls that disappear in two hours.

    Not sure I can handle anymore online responsibilities… Are you finding it easy to manage?

  5. It can be really helpful with publishing things. Following agents, editors, and publishers can give you some useful info. Plus you may get to the tastes of certain agents, and a feel for their personalities. If you clicked over to Fizzygrrl’s blog, you’d see her future agent had been liking her Twitter feed for some time. I use Twitter to supplement my blog. Twitter is more immediate. You can connect more easily with other like minded souls in a shorter amount of time.

    So far, yes, I’m finding it relatively easy to manage. But you would know what is best for you. Usually the porn bots disappear if you don’t follow them back. It take time, but Twitter can lead to some fruitful connections. Maybe you could look up some of your favorite authors, or agents and see what they are up to on Twitter. Decide after look around a bit. No one says you have to use Twitter, but it may be worth a try. Good luck!
