Last Wednesday I took part in #TheAuthorHour on Twitter and won the place of ‘book of the week’. I was thrilled to have this recognition and I love the concept and what this Twitter feed is actioning and bringing authors together. I have had some fantastic conversations with other authors in the last few weeks of having found out about The Author Hour.

If you would like to take part all you have to do go on Twitter on a Wednesday evening 8-9pm GMT and tweet using the hashtag #TheAuthorHour. Engage with other people using the hashtag and connect, find out what other fellow authors are doing and fire questions. I have found it beneficial and can see a clear supportive community which is perfect especially if you’re an indie author. If you take part you have the chance to be ‘book of the week’ and receive a badge to be displayed on your social media and website alongside having your book cover on the @TheAuthorHour Twitter feed as seen below.

I thought outside of the box and showed off my unique marketing behind Isolation Junction. I shared photo’s of myself wearing a white ribbon pin badge, my block the road to isolation junction t-shirt, the personal metal bookmarks I can produce and also the Kickstarter campaign which had recently been funded. This will help you stand out.

Thank you to those running #TheAuthorHour I will continue to be engaged and enjoy connecting with your audience.

    Brilliant stuff!

    I’m struggling to find ways to get noticed, even though I’m doing what I can.

    I can’t really find many authors of humour to guest blog for and visa versa to gain a bit of exposure.

    I may try this. Is it just a case of posting about my book on this hashtag? 🙂

      Hi, Yes on a Wednesday evening between 8-9pm and you can join in the discussions and fun as well. They look for someone to stick out from the crowd so think about your posts 😉

      I met Si Page at the weekend and he writes comedy books, he may be worth connecting with. I hope that helps.
