My first novel, Shallow Waters, is being read by a beta reader, Denyse Kirkby, or as she’s known on Twitter @DJKirkby. I’ve asked Denyse to read it with a specific issue in mind, as well as an overall eye on it. I was thrilled when she agreed to do this. What I didn’t expect was to see tweets coming through as she did it.
Denyse has been tweeting me her thoughts as she progresses through the book and do you know, it has been absolutely thrilling! To know someone is reading it, to be getting live feedback and to see the bits they’re picking out to mention! It has given me such a buzz. I know it’s not a real published book, but I have loved seeing Denyse’s tweets nonetheless.
So, with this in mind, I have made a decision, if the author I am currently reading is on Twitter, I shall tweet them as I read. It may just make someone smile!
Do you Tweet as you read, is it something you will now consider?
