Twitter's Where it's @

By Kelli "@EditMeThis" Collins

Here at EC, we heartily support excessive author pimpage. Gotta sell those books, after all. Authors have bills to pay, mouths to feed, sex toys research materials to buy. And of course, it’s a genuine delight to pimp our authors when they rock harder than a porch full of assisted-living residents. Though really, EC authors promote themselves and each other better than we ever could. They’re everywhere. Websites, MySpace, Facebook, the blogosphere, at conferences and conventions, etc.

For fans who can’t afford conferences, have gotten in trouble for reading blogs at work and are just too darn sophisticated for Facebook, try Twitter. Tons of your fave EC authors are tweeting away daily, sharing everything from upcoming release dates to writing angst to short stories told in 140-character increments. You just sign up and lurk, pretty much. No communication required (though if you’re inclined, you’ll find most authors more than willing to tweet with fans).

The following is not a full list of EC authors; likely not even a full list of EC authors represented on Twitter. But it’s a hella great start. Don’t forget to follow @ellorascave for the latest releases, calls for submissions, etc. (And authors, if you don’t see your @name, comment so we can follow you!)

Hi!

I'm there as nataliedae. Twitter is always "over capacity" every time I try to log in, so I rarely tweet. Maybe one day I'll finally be able to log in more than once a month.
