Welcome to The Big Reveal
I enjoy reading author interviews, but often times they don’t ask the kinds of questions I wonder about. So I’ve assembled a group of writers at all levels, from un-agented to published, and every week I will have a new question for them.
What social media do you use?
Lynne Schmidt, Un-Agented Author
Blog, twitter, goodreads, facebook. I probably spend the most time on Twitter and my blog. I think people would be surprised to know that each blog post I do usually takes about an hour between formatting, editing, and posting pictures. But it’s a nice way to get my voice out in the world.
Theresa Paulo, Agented Author
Twitter, Goodreads, PInterest, Facebook, I’m on everything. My new obsession is Pinterest, I can spend hours on it and think only minutes have past. It’s awful, I mean who needs a board just for keys, but I love it. However, for interaction with other writers I prefer Twitter.
Mindi Scott, Published Author
I have two blogs. I use Goodreads and Pinterest VERY occasionally. I am on Twitter and FB off and on throughout the day. FB is probably my favorite right now, because the Twitter app on my phone is awful. I’m hoping that when my new phone comes (very soon!), I’ll like Twitter better again.
Steph Campbell, Published Author
I use Twitter and Facebook, and I keep a personal blog (admittedly, I’m not great about keeping it up to date, though.
Christa Desir, Pre-Published Author
I have a blog. I have a FB account (either an author one now). But I have an addiction to Twitter. Also, lately, I have taken to writing letters to people I care about.
Dahlia Adler, Agented Author
All of them. Seriously. I have a blog (my own and one I co-write with 11 other YA writers called YA Misfits), Twitter, Goodreads, Pinterest, Facebook, Tumblr… you name it, I’m on it. I’d have to say that Twitter is my favorite, because I really like the access to information it provides and all the different topics of discussion that go on. It’s a lot less effort than blogging and a lot less sharing of personal information than Facebook, so I find it’s a nice way to connect with other writers without really opening up your entire life.
Jenny Morris, Agented Author
All of the above. Haha. I’ve slacked at Goodreads and Pinterest lately but I’m on FB and Twitter daily. I love FB for my personal life. My author page is still boring. But I love Twitter for writerly connections. And to have long drawn out conversations about Doctor Who or Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
