Book Blogger Hop: Keeping up with Authors on Social Media #BookBloggerHop

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book-related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.

Absolutely! I’ve gotten to know a lot of authors from reviewing books, and I follow their social media. Two of them especially became dear friends. You know who you are, Gail and Louise! You can learn more about these wonderful authors by clicking on their name.

If I review a book I especially like, I keep track of the author on social media so I can request their next book.

I also see a lot of poignant posts on author sites. Liz Gauffreau wrote a book review yesterday that blew me away. Joy Neal Kidney provides fascinating posts about the history of Iowa and her family. They are also both fantastic authors. There are so many others whose posts I follow and enjoy.

I also help promote them by retweeting, sharing, etc. That is part of making my page a community of writers, reviewers, and readers who support each other.

  1. Thank you, Bonnie! When I set out on this scary journey a couple years ago, I never expected to meet so many wonderful people and treasured friends along the way, readers and authors. (You and Louise top the list!) It made me realize that we are all in this together, helping each other out with the same goals, whether it’s finding a good book to read or writing one. I hate to say, but thank goodness for social media:)

  3. I use Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Instagram is my #1 spot where I connect with my favorite authors, I like to find out what they are coming out with next and chatting about the books they have already published.
