FOUR AUTHORS WHO HAVE A FUN SOCIAL MEDIA PRESENCE

Mabuhay, friends! 

One of my favourite things about social media is having the chance to get to know my favourite authors from afar. I, personally, don’t engage much with the authors online beyond a comment here and there. The platforms I follow authors on are Twitter, Youtube, and Instagram. I’ve recently started listening to podcasts, so that’s one platform I would like to explore!

So, if I don’t engage much with the authors, why do I follow them?

🌺 WRITING ADVICE – Many of the authors talk about their struggles, their goals and achievements, and their fears while writing. It helps me as a writer to see that kind of vulnerability because it makes me feel a bit more secure in my own work. It’s good to know that the authors I love have the same fears as I and to watch them overcome those fears, inspires me.

🌺 BEHIND THE SCENES PEEK – I love searching out fan art for books I enjoy! So, I especially love character art reveals. Besides that, authors often talk about the process of shaping their characters or their plotline. I love seeing how the books started out and how they developed over time.

Though my Top Ten Tuesday post comes late this week, I still hope you enjoy reading this post and finding new authors to follow!

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

Bonnie Wynne

I’ve had the fortunate chance to meet Bonnie Wynne during her book launch for The Ninth Sorceress in Sydney. I enjoy following her on Instagram @itsbonniewynne because she gives a lot of “behind the scenes” of her writing life. I, particularly, enjoy knowing more about an author’s writing routine and just being encouraged when I see them conquer a certain word count or a scene in their book.

Amazing to see so many of you at @betterreadbookshop last night to launch #TheNinthSorceress. I didn’t puke during my speech, get embarrassingly tipsy, or spell anyone’s name wrong (although I was militant about checking the spelling with EVERYONE. Is that Sue with an an ‘s?’ Is that Tim with one ‘m?’) Overall, a huge success. Big thanks to everyone who attended and apologies for my bad handwriting and signature. I hope I become famous and you can all find your retirements with your first edition copies.⁣ ⁣ #BonnieWynne #authorlife #reading #bookish #bookblogger #booklover #bibliophile #authorsofinstagram #writerlife #bookcommunity #bookster #allthebooks #booksofinstagram #WritingCommunity #bookstagram #aussiebookgroup #ausbookishfeatures #instadaily #bookstagramfeature #bookstagrammer #bookobsessed #readingtime #instalove #aussiereaders #bookrecommendations #bookaholic #ausyabloggers #fantasybooks #LoveOzYA

RIN CHUPECO

Rin Chupeco is quite active on Twitter where they not only talk about their writing but also promote diversity in books. I love following Rin’s work because they teach me things I did not know about being inclusive in my writing.

JENNA MORECI

I haven’t had the chance to read Jenna Moreci’s book but I’ve been following her Authortube since I first began working on Ghoul WIP. Her videos are very educational and have helped me a lot with writing characters. Her outlining video is a favourite because it helped me hone my own outlining method. Jenna is very witty and sarcastic in her videos which is very refreshing.

BRITTANY WANG

Author Brittany Wang is a recent discovery! I’m so glad I came across her videos because she talks a lot about productivity and organization for an author’s life. I’ve been obsessively watching her videos trying to learn how to better my own writing routine.

    I love this post!! After getting involved in Twitter I started becoming a little scared of following authors just in case they were involved in some kind of scandal that may have made me dislike a book I really enjoyed 😅 But I love that there are authors who have a consistently pleasant social media presence. Thanks for sharing!!

    Great list! Still reeling at what happened with Rin Chupeco. Angie Thomas is hilarious, Bolu Babalola too (though her book is soon tbr), and S. K. Ali has a pragmatic approach to diversity in publishing and books.
