I am releasing a new book ELLY HAYS on Nov 4 and doing an online book tour. The last day of the tour, Saturday Nov 16, I am hosting a Twitter Chat called “From Concept to Published!” As I’m sure you do also, I have tons of family and friends who always ask me how to go about publishing a book. Instead of spending hours telling them, I figured we’d just Twitter about the basics.
I’ve invited my book designer to join us and would love it if any of you would also join. I’m already promoting the event and will continue to do so through Nov 16th!
I’m going to ask basic writing/publishing questions like:
“Let’s start with concept: Where do your book ideas come from?”
“How long does it take you to write a book? Concept to published.”
“Do you use outside help? Beta readers? Editor? Cover designer?”
I’ll also ask at the beginning for all authors to tell us their titles and genres. And at the end, ask all authors to post a link where our guest can find them.
If you would like to join me, please email me at LoriCraneAuthor@gmail.com and I’ll email you all the questions, so you’ll be able to figure out answers using “140 spaces or less.” Of course, as our guests ask questions too, ours may be thrown out the window. Wing it!
The Twitter Chat is Saturday Nov 16, 4-5pm Eastern. I suggest using http://tweetchat.com/ which is real-time Twitter that you don’t need to repeatedly put in the hashtag with every comment. The hashtag I’m using is the name of my new book – #ellyhays.
I’m going to limit participating authors to six, as we only have an hour, and it will be too crazy if thirty authors are answering questions. Be one of the first six to email me and lock in your spot! Of course, everyone is welcome to attend the event.
PLEASE JOIN ME! IT’LL BE FUN! (and it’ll be FREE book promotion, which is one of our favorite things.)
