I’m trying to stop screwing around, and get more serious about my branding and marketing efforts, now that I have a new book ready to come out, The Pono Way. (Oh yeah, I have a new book ready to come out. More about that later.)
To that effect, I created some new social media pages for myself, for my author identity. Here they are:
On Twitter: @AuthorCorby https://twitter.com/AuthorCorby
On Facebook: @kirstencorbyauthor https://www.facebook.com/kirstencorbyauthor/
On Instagram: @kcorbyauthor https://www.instagram.com/kcorbyauthor/
On Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/2914295.Kirsten_M_Corby
And of course, you can always email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Follow them! And I’ll follow you. Let’s all follow each other’s accounts in a big daisy chain and rip a hole in the space-time continuum!
They say you shouldn’t exhaust yourself posting to every social media platform, but stick to the ones you like and feel comfortable with. I use all of these personally, but for different things. We’ll see which ones work for me as an author. I kind of hate Twitter, but it has a dedicated #WritingCommunity, so you kind of have to be there right now. I’m on Facebook personally all the time, so that will probably stick around. Instagram is image-based — you can’t post without an image — but you can also right surprisingly long captions. And it has a committed #Bookstagram community too, so it’s good to try and hook into that.
Two years from now, this may all have changed, of course. But you can see my current contacts, whatever they may be, on my Contacts page.
