What’s your favorite social media outlet for marketing/promotions?

Confession. I’m a twitter addict. Like—I ADORE it. Fortunately, for me, it’s the perfect blend of something I love and marketing. Because I don’t actually look at it like promotion. Its just something I love, a place to talk about my favorite things—books and writing and my crazy family.

Twitter, to me, is the perfect place for a shy person to make friends. I can think through everything I say (though I don’t) and when I’m feeling overwhelmed, I can step away. And it’s a happy place filled with writers and readers. I can talk about my books, and other books, talk about writing—and it doesn’t feel like promotion. And it helps me feel less alone, because I’m surrounded by people who love books as much as I do.

When I do look at Twitter with an eye at marketing, I try to remember a couple essential rules:

1:10 ratio—1 promo tweet to 10 tweets about life, interesting shtuff.

Connection is more important than sales—I care about people. Obviously I want ALL THE PEOPLE to buy my books, but I care about making a real connection with people more than anything else. As long as I keep that thought in mind, it’s hard to screw things up.

So you should visit me on Twitter—talk to me about books and what you’re reading. I would pretty much love talking to you. :)

She's been broken by her past. He's been breaking for as long as he can remember.
Together, they can make each other whole--or destroy each other.

When his best friend asks for something, Dane rarely says no. But babysitting a newly sober Scout Grimes for three weeks isn't exactly a normal request. And with their history, it's a recipe for disaster. Not to mention, she's drop dead gorgeous and he can't touch her.

There are few people Scout trusts as much as Dane Guillot. He's always been her safe place, where nothing can hurt her. He's also been the only man she's never let herself want--screwing up their friendship isn't worth one amazing night together.

They have too much history, and too much personal baggage to ever work. But if they are willing to take a chance on love--it might be worth the risk.
