Breaking his tactics into short chapters and simple, actionable steps, he demonstrates exactly how any creative professional can achieve similar results.

Whether you’re a writer, artist, musician, or any other creative professional, The #ArtOfTwitter will show you how to:

– Understand the changing world of social media

– Avoid common mistakes

– Gain a bigger audience by using hashtags

– Nurture follower engagement

– Save time with Twitter apps

– Implement a strategy for sustained growth

– Make money with Twitter ads

– Ensure every tweet is a hit

– Get real-world influence


Even though I’m an author, I have to admit that I seldom give reviews for non-fiction books.  Especially books I bought to help me with my writing or marketing.  *hangs my head in shame.*  There are hundreds of books telling us how to market ourselves on Facebook, Twitter, you name it.  Most are disappointing.  So when I was asked to give this book a review, I have to admit I was a little dubious.  After all, what more can be said?  I was pleasantly surprised to discover I was wrong.

I’ve been on twitter for almost 4 years.  It was the first social media platform I tried when I started publishing my books.  I spent hours building up a following, just by following whoever followed me.  Then I got on Facebook and sorta let Twitter slide into the sidelines.  I still tweeted, especially in retweet groups, but I kinda ignored it.  I’d read several books about Twitter and how to manage your account, but none of them compare to the #Artoftwitter.

Daniel Parsons spells everything out in an easy to understand format.  He touches on subjects never discussed in other books.  Like Hashtag Games, and using MangeFilter to streamline your followers and who to follow.  I already had a ManageFiler subscription, but never knew the full potential of the program.  This book has also made me rethink my strategy on twitter and I’m looking forward to implementing some of the changes he suggests. 

Whether you’re a novice or a long-term user of Twitter, I’m sure you’ll find some useful information in this book.  I give it a well-deserved 5 twitter bird feathers.

About Sahara Foley

Bio: Until my husband died on Christmas 2012, I never thought about becoming a writer. In fact, the act of writing a story terrified me. Don’t get me wrong, I loved reading, just never had the knack for writing. The thought of writing dialogue scared the bejeebers out of me. See, Bob was the writer. He wrote stories for years but could never get a traditional publisher interested enough to publish even one. Now I understand why, as they were unpolished outlines. Then, after 30 years together, Bob passed away and my life was turned upside down. About a month later, I was sitting around my apartment, trying to adjust to the worst event in my life, when a little voice spoke to me. Why not publish Bob’s stories? To be truthful, ever since the advent of self-publishing, I always wanted too, that’s how much I believed in his stories. But I knew I would have to fight him for every little change I made to his outlines. Sorry, honey, but they had to be done. So, I pulled out the box of stories, dusted them off, and started on a new adventure: The World of Self-Publishing. Boy, did I have a lot to learn. I finally published several short stories early in 2014, then my horror novella, It Lives in the Basement. While I was working on them, I was slowly learning the craft of writing, and getting The Secret of Excalibur ready for publication. Excalibur was my favorite story of them all, and in the back of my mind, I knew I wanted a publisher. One day on Twitter, I ran across a tweet from Creativia Publishing, and that was another game changer for me. I signed up with them in December of 2014, and it was the best decision I’ve made. One thing I’ve discovered on my new adventure, are all the really awesome and talented Indie Authors. If you find the right community of Indie Authors, all they want to do is help each other. I found that I love promoting them and their books, so that’s how I setup my blog. For readers to meet Indie Authors. Anyway, enough about me.
