When do you un-follow on twitter?

ImageI usually do so after a couple of weeks of anyone not following me back. Since I follow back anyone that originally follows me, I feel they should do the same. Why should I read tweets from them if they are not reading mine. That is my philosophy on that. I know some have a program to automatically un-follow someone that does not follow them but I prefer to do it the old fashion way, I know it is more time consuming doing it this way but I like doing it by hand so I can look at once again what these people including have on their sites. As the list grows and hopefully yours does, you tend to forget what some of them are offering. Such as book cover designers. I will be in the market for them in a few months. Right now, I am going through each of my published books with a fine tooth comb with my fabulous editing team, then I will republish my books with new exciting covers. All those I self published, the others will have to wait until my contract runs out. Getting back to twitter, I don’t understand why or how some people have thousands of followers yet fllows only one to two. I guess their shit don’t stink?  Talk back, I’m listening.

Six more things I’ve learned as a published author

I like this so much, I re-blogged it.

Ok – here’s a second blog post about things I’ve learned since my book was published. I thought these posts worth doing because quite a lot things have come as a big surprise to me! I didn’t really know what to expect, except the unexpected, and I haven’t been disappointed. You can read five things I’ve learned since my book was published here. Now here’s a few more.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe community of writers, and readers, is remarkably strong.

I’ve been delighted by this – I really didn’t expect the warmth and sense of community I’ve found since my book came out from people online and on social media. People are only happy to offer a kind word, advice or simply support when you are negotiating the sometimes baffling world of letting people know about your book. This is something which runs through Twitter, Facebook and through the comments you get…

Chronicles of the Marauder- editing

ImageSome may ask, Why they haven’t heard much about this lately and the answer is simple. After paying for an editor, the book still had too many mistakes for me to push it any longer.I have not pulled it from the market but I am working as part of a team to edit it right and make it the book I intended it to be. A great adventure series filled with emotions, danger and close calls while facing the problems that will occur when you mix humans and all their emotions with aliens that have totally different emotions or none at all being members of the crew. Using an editing team instead of just one editor is expensive but I feel the series deserves the best editing it can get.Hopefully, I will be uploading the re-edited, edited book one in another month. Until then, over look some of the glaring errors and enjoy the series. If you can’t then wait, it will be out! Have a nice day and Talk back, I’m listening.

Xao Thao is the author with today’s “Book of the Day”. Today, Xao, pronounced “Chow”, has a second posting on “Coleman and Big Ed’s Reader’s Corner” with her new book “Blood Lust”. This post is a little different than others in the past as it primarily reviews the author. Maybe it should be “Author of the Day, but alas not.

Xao is a young author I am acquainted with through the author community. She is a very generous peer promoter and an energetic author. While socializing she takes time to promote her work and write. You may join The Turning Vampire Series Official Facebook Page
