Twitter Tuesday~Crickets Due To BEA
The agents and editors have been scarce with the tweets lately. I think it may be in part due to the excitement left over from BEA. But I did manage to catch a few for you! This first one is golden advice from agent Rachelle Gardner:
@RachelleGardner Writing credentials and platform don't sell your novel, your WRITING does. Important truth in fiction! #pubtip
Worried about the stigma of self-publishing holding you back from getting an agent? Agent Mandy Hubbard shines light on the subject:
@MandyHubbard epubbing pre-agent probably wont make a big impact either way, unless its a v. successful book.#askagent
Agent Deirdre Knight reminds us that Twitter isn't just for promotion:
@DeidreKnight Here's a #pubtip. Pls don't use Twitter just to endlessly self-promote without any genuine interaction. That's basically a #tweettip too
If you write Sci-Fi/Fantasy then you don't want to miss this:

Heather, these are great tweets! You just continually amaze me of all that you do to support everyone. And, in turn it helps us too. That's what I love about the writing community... the support system.ReplyDelete
I love that you keep track of these for everyone! Rachelle Gardner always seems to have a lot of advice that's both positive and useful. It's nice, because some of the agents can seem a little negative on Twitter, or maybe it's just bc they're venting. Who knows.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Heather, as ALWAYS! :-)ReplyDelete
