#L&SR #WednesdayBloggingChallenge 4.24.19 The Books that Twitter sold me on!

Today’s prompt is an interesting one: Books I’ve discovered on Social media.

I follow many authors on Social Media through Twitter, Book Bub and their facebook pages, so I’ve gotten a ton of new authors to read because of my media engagement ( or maybe it’s an obsession!) These are my two favorites:

I found LAUREN LAYNE on Instagram one day as I was scrolling through my feed, bought the book she was spotlighting, TO HAVE AND HOLD

and then bought her entire back list. She is now a one-click for me for every preorder!

I discovered CATHERINE BYBEE at a conference about, of all things, TWITTER For Authors!!! I loved everything she had to say about author engagement on SM and then she, too, became a one click author for me after reading WIFE BY WEDNESDAY

Let’s see if any of the other authors in this blog challenge have found some new favs: L&SR

And speaking of social media engagement, you can follow me here and decide if I become one of your one-click authors!!!

Here’s the link to my TELL ME ABOUT YOUR DAMN BOOK podcast interview, just in case you missed it: TMAYDB

and the link to my recent interview on NewHampshirePublicRadio

And I can’t forget the OKRWA 2018 Award video

    I still don’t have an instagram account, but I’ve heard a lot of authors using it now. I might discover some new ones.

      I love instagram and not only for the great marketing you can do on it! It’s fun to look through everyone’s pictures of their daily life.

  2. I have an instagram account, but don’t use it much… my kids do, though. I need to check it back out again. I love “meeting” new authors on social media! My post is here: https://jhthomas.blogspot.com/2019/04/wednesday-weekly-blogging-challenge_24.html

    I have a personal instagram account, but should definitely look into an author one. I’ve read Catherine Bybee, but not Lauren Layne. I’ll check her out! I’m here today: http://www.mariannearkins.com/wednesday-weekly-blogging-challenge-books-i-discovered-on-social-media/

    I didn’t know there was such a thing as a Twitter conference for authors. How neat.

      Lydia – it happened at an RWA conference during a PAN session. Catherine was the featured speaker and instructor on how to use Twitter as an author. Very cool

    Want to hear a funny? I discovered you via Twitter back in 2015. I think it was Skater’s Waltz. Someone wrote a review that I liked. I’ve discovered a ton of authors and their books on Instagram. It’s so great and I get tons more interactions via IG than I ever do via Twitter. *waves to Peg*

  7. I like using instagram, but I wish I could do it more from my laptop so i could access my book covers better. Good list!
