This month, Rachel Thompson of Bad Redhead Media is hosting a Twitter-driven event called #NaNoProMo. Rachel is the author of several award-winning books, including the 30 Day Book Marketing Challenge.

Rachel’s event is National Novel Promotion Month. If you are an author or plan to publish and market a book, this is information you don’t want to miss. Follow along on Twitter to catch the daily posts. Comment on each post to enter a chance to win author-supported prizes.

Your TwitterFlash challenge for May in to share the #NaNoWriMo hashtag by Tweeting from one of Rachel’s daily guest posts. You can use the built-in Tweets or the Tweet button.

A bonus challenge is to join in one of Rachel’s weekly #BookMarketingChat events. It happens every Wednesday, 6pm pst/9pm est on Twitter (just use the hashtag to join). It’s a good way to see how chats work.

In the comments below, let’s open up a discussion about how (and why) to use Twitter as a promotional strategy for books, blogs, and author brands.


  1. “Pal, they’s sure goin’ on about marketin’ lately.”
    “Yep, an’ brandin’. Makes sense. We buckaroos an’ vaqueros ride out an’ round up the herd, right?”
    “Yep, bring the herd ‘roun’ the ranch…”
    “But where are we takin’ ‘em? Ta market. Otherwise we’s jist roamin’ the range, drivin’ unheard herds a words.”
    “But ‘market’, Pal, doesn’t that mean…”
    “We herd words, Kid, stories. Marketing gives them life, green pastures- readers. So keep stock yer proud of, brand yer stock, and git it ta market.”
    “Git yerself educated at Carrot Ranch and”
    “Seems like work.”
    “So’s writin’. Got readers?”

      That thar is flash promo! Good ‘ne!

      And for the best of reasons, too: “Otherwise we’s jist roamin’ the range, drivin’ unheard herds a words.”


  2. I’ve been following Rachel’s blog posts this month. I am like a marketing illiterate. Now to get me over to Twitter…

      Rachel has a great book, too — 30 Day Book Marketing Challenge. She’s a good one for teaching writers to read marketing!

      • Yes! I’ve read her 30 Day book through twice and am getting ready to dive in and really work through it, implementing the practices. I suspect it will take me longer than 30 days…but slow and steady wins the race. At least I think so. 😉

“A delightful story of a conventional Delhi girl who finds herself in the eye of a storm, ‘Bowled but Not Out’ brings out a whirlwind of emotions through its pages.”
