After resisting the urge to Twitter for a long, long time, I have finally succumbed. Yes. I am Twittering and you can follow me at: http://twitter.com/amloughrey
There are many quite exciting things happening on Twitter at the moment. Many YA novelists are twittering as their characters, such as Kathleen Duey http://twitter.com/kathleenduey and Melvin Burgess http://twitter.com/MelvinBurgess.
Sarwat Chadda twitters quotes from his book Devil Kiss at: http://twitter.com/devilskissbook and Julia Golding is running a competition to help her character, Catherine Royal, solve riddles at: http://twitter.com/CatherineRoyal.
Authors like Katie Fforde http://twitter.com/KatieFforde, Jill Mansell http://twitter.com/JillMansell and Mary Hoffman http://twitter.com/MARYMHOFFMAN prefer to Twitter than use Facebook. I always wondered how come their status updated loads everyday on Facebook. I suppose it is very quick and easy.
You can also follow publishers, newspapers and magazines. So it really was about time I joined the bandwagon - better late than never.
