I'm a TWIT

Well, I finally did it.  I joined Twitter. 

I did it because I am reading a book on marketing picture books (How to Promote Your Children's Book: Tips, Tricks, and Secrets to Create a Bestseller) and the author (Katie Davis) INSISTED that I do it.

The fact is, social media is here to stay. 

Another fact is this, publishers only push so many books.  They do not spread their ad dollars out evenly.  They pick a horse. 

I'm not complaining - thems the breaks.  But if I want my book to do well, I have to be pro-active.

Therefore, I tweet.

If you're on Twitter and want to follow me, I'm @JCPhillipps.

And no, I don't really know what I'm doing yet, but I did tweet my first photo today!  Yay!
