So, I’m trying something new with Twitter. My old plan was that I post every 3-6 hours and do retweets in-between. A very active plan that required me stopping what I was doing to make sure I put stuff between the tweets. Kind of rough to think of so many fun tweets too. Never sure if that was helpful or not though. It allowed people to retweet me more than once a day, but I don’t know if it ever turned into sales. A lot of work for not much payoff? Hard to continue especially at this time of year and things kept crumbling in my hands.
The new plan is the following:
- Schedule a tweet for 12 AM. Stays at top while I’m asleep as long as Hootsuite does what it’s supposed to.
- Pin the tweet when I wake up. Locked in for the day.
- Retweet throughout the day with no feeling of having to rush before a new tweet turns up.
This is a lot easier to maintain, but I’m not sure if this helps me get exposure. The books are limping like they’ve done all year. Not to mention we’re talking about a long series, which has a curse of having fewer sales for every book. Charms of the Feykin hasn’t even hit 100 yet, which has me worried. We all know the reasons behind my focus on this, so I won’t go into that rant.
Overall, this month is going to be low key. Easier tweet pattern, nothing much beyond ‘Raven’s Game’ on the blog, and me just trying to make some progress on the other projects. God help me, I don’t even know how to fit the editing of Chasing Bedlam into this. Hard to get motivated since the first book is still dead in the water. I loved writing it, but seems I’m one of the few. Be a shame to retire that series already, but I might just make it a cheap one. I’m getting off topic. So much going on that I can’t get a handle on these days. Let’s end on a happy note:
