Tweet Tweet

What are the FIVE Twitter handles/people you think everyone should follow?

@neilhimself Um yeah, Neil Gaiman. He's one of my faves. Also if you haven't read anything by him you should. I usually find myself crying at the end of his books and I can't explain it except that I'm so sad the book is over.

@halseanderson Everyone probably knows who Laurie Halse Anderson is and if you write for young adults she was probably one of the first people you followed. Me too.

@grammargirl I need to be better at grammar

Publishers- I follow a lot of book publishers so I'm not going to list them individually just that you should follow them especially in the genre you want to be published in.

Agents- I follow a few agents. Reading their tweets can be great info for what to do and what not to do when submitting.

I just bought my second Neil Gaiman book! The Graveyard book. I've read the first chapter and I'm already hooked.

Someday I'll Twitter. Still not ready yet!

Thanks for the grammar girl tip. I'll check that out.

Also, do you follow Amanda Palmer? It's very cute to watch her and Neil interact.

Cool, grammar girl has a Twitter account? Will check it out! And agents' tweets are helpful :)

Great recommendations! I need to get more involved at Twitter at some point. Maybe. Definitely need to read more Neil Gaiman!

I just dashed off and followed Grammar girl. Thanks for the tip

Good question! I'm not following some of those people so I'll add them. I follow my agent (@ginger_clark) she tweets a lot of fantastic publishing related stuff and I also find some of @mandyhubbards tweets to be informative. There's a couple of editors too that I like to follow:)

Such a fantastic list! Neil Gaiman is at the top of my TBR pile. Very excited to get acquainted with him :)
