I ban any twitter account that auto posts. If you can't take the time to communicate with the authors on a personal basis, there's no reason to follow you.

Most of the agents and publicity venues I've spoken to recommend not auto posting. Can you tell me where you got your information? All you have to do is visit ThrillerFest one year to hear why it's so bad.

I am not sure what is meant by autotweeting, and hope I am not running foul of the rules, Terry. I am running a 30-day programme in which my two books are tweeted ten times a day on Twitter. So far I haven't sold any books as a result of it. Not even had any downloads, but yesterday one of them received over a thousand page views. The other had six hundred, so I'm getting plenty of exposure but none of it is translating into sales. I have a sinking feeling that I've wasted sixty dollars but I hope not. Can't afford to throw money away.

As far as I know, they are posted just on Twitter, not in anyone's mailboxes. Most of my "friends" are here on the Forum. I would hope they would have howled in protest if I'd been guilty. Surely none of you would have suffered in silence? I really hope not. How do I go about checking/

I have too loud a voice to not complain. :x :P
Slowly putting together a "replacement" forum at http://writerswriting.proboards.com.

It's still under construction, but come take a look.

Your good Dorothy. I've never seen a mailbox tweet from you. Sounds like you're just paying for advertising. Nothing wrong with that as Twitter needs to make money.

Just following up on the campaign to Tweet my books. I thought you might like to see the results.

The Gift had approx. 7,650 page views, averaging 273 per day over 28 days. Highest number of page views on one day was 450.
No sales. Not even one sample download.

Staying Alive had approx. 13,000 page views, even with three days of no views due to a glitch in the book link. That averages 565 views over 28 days. Highest number of page views on one day was 1,100.
Again, no sales or sample downloads.

I shan't be spending any more money on tweeting my books. :(
