Sarwat Chadda twitters quotes from his book Devil Kiss at: and Julia Golding is running a competition to help her character, Catherine Royal, solve riddles at:

Authors like Katie Fforde, Jill Mansell and Mary Hoffman 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.

Welcome to Twitter! It's about time....!!!

Actually, I am writing an entire novel in tweets and the archive is here if you are interested. It is, by far, the most interesting writing experiment I have ever attempted...

Now to go find you and follow you (that sounds creepy, but YOU know what I mean...)on twitter...
