Yes, I did it. I deactivated my Twitter account. I appreciated the thoughtful comments made by posters to my previous posts about Twitter, and considered it carefully, but at the end of the day, the white noise was more than I wanted to handle. I don’t have time for this one.
Maybe they’re right and as a debut author, I should spend time on Twitter, following strangers, hoping they’ll follow me too.
But at the end of the day, I don’t think Twitter sells books. I think books sell books. The same way that Larsson’s books sold, and The King’s Speech attracted attention. Plain old word of mouth, based on great stories and interesting characters.
You won’t be able to follow me on Twitter any longer if you were. But you can follow me here. Or be part of the dialogue on Absolute Write. And I am, of course, addicted to Facebook. Thanks for the input. Tweeting out….
