How to Avoid Losing Social Media Followers 

Penelope‘s insight:
 

Are your followers “stuffed” from overconsumption of your Tweets and Facebook posts?  There is something to the old adage, “too much of a good thing……”

 If you are losing followers and not sure why, think about how much you are feeding them at the social media table. Is it always “BUY MY BOOK!” “CHECK OUT MY BOOK!” “READ MY BOOK!” Are you doling out tiny bites of delectable morsels, or force feeding them globs of unsavory mash?

 Interesting article on this subject, and these points sum it up:

 1) What type of CONTENT am I posting? – Is it newsworthy, thought-provoking or refurbished?

 2) How OFTEN am I posting? – More tweeting does not endear your to your followers. Let your guests savor what you do post. Make sure you are only bringing out the best.

 3) Is my Social Media limited to ONE SITE? – Take a look at the different social media possibilities other than Twitter and Facebook. Pinterest is my new favorite. Also check out LinkedIn, Google+ and Instagram.

 Invite your followers to your social media table, bring out the appetizers, and the salads, but don’t gorge them on your main course.

Amazon Children’s Publishing expands with more books for younger kids and teens

See on Scoop.itWriting for Kindle

Amazon is expanding its children’s publishing division with two new imprints. “Two Lions” will publish picture books, chapter books and middle-grade fiction, while “Skyscape” is aimed at teens.

Penelope‘s insight:

 

Should you focus on writing for the children’s book market? As Amazon Children’s Publishing expands with more books for younger kids and teens–this might be a great market. Think picture books.

 The expansion could help feed Kindle FreeTime Unlimited, Amazon’s new subscription product for kids. The program, aimed at 3- to 8-year-olds, offers unlimited access to ebooks, movies, TV shows, educational apps and games for a set monthly price (starting at $2.99).

 Parents are looking for more and more “kid-friendly” books that they can share with their youngsters, and children have their own kindles now.
