I was talking with my friend Aubrey Hansen tonight, and she had a great story tidbit that I told her I would be quoting.

Generally, doing things just for realism is a bad idea… It has to be for story reasons, not realism. Realism is relative.

Authors, when you have a new book out, do a Goodreads giveaway. Seriously, hundreds of entries without much promotional effort. It’s phenomenal.

Tweets are basically loglines. Think about it. If you can make your story’s logline fit into a tweet, not only are you really good, but you can also tweet your logline!

Even better if you have room for a link to the official page. Practice. Twitter’s a great way to get into the habit of saying only the essentials.
