Do you follow your favorite authors on social media? #BookBloggerHop #bookish #discussionpost

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.

Do you use social media to keep up with your favorite authors?

(Submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer))

Yes I do but I thought this was funny 😆

Yes and no. I follow the ones that follow me on my Tessa Talks Books’ Instagram and Twitter accounts. Then on my personal accounts for IG and FB, I follow my favorites like Janet Evanovich, Anne Rice, James Patterson, Terry Goodkind, etc… But… here’s the thing…I’m not on my personal accounts like ever – so I never see any posts. If I want to know anything – like about a new book coming out – I just go to their website if they have one.

  1. I do follow some on Twitter and Instagram but like you, end up going to their websites or Goodreads to find out about their new books.

  2. I am very shy about following authors on social media. I have followed a few favorites but mostly don’t out of a deep fear they will come across my reviews of their books if I follow them, lol

    1. Oh, they will come across your reviews regardless. It’s both disconcerting and exhilarating when they do. It makes you feel noticed, you know?

  3. Interesting question. I follow a few, mostly those that follow me. I much prefer to sign up for their newsletters, which are not only helpful about planned releases but offer stuff from time to time.

  4. I follow some of my favorites for book news, giveaways, etc. But also because so many of them share things about their writing techniques and struggles. It helps to know that all writers have their ups and downs.

  5. I follow more followers on twitter than Instagram but among large number of followings and feeds, I don’t exactly get to check out any particular author and I don’t have enough time to specifically visit author’s social media to check for new updates. I think if I want that I would easily get that on their newsletters. But I love getting reply to tweets for review I have written.

  6. I only ever had facebook to follow authors, I didn’t friend my family and I don’t make personal posts on there. Over the last few years, I’ve drifted away and only check in a couple of times a week. There are only two authors I still follow and that’s because I arc read for them still.
    I just don’t have time for Twitter and Instagram – I’d rather spend my time reading.
