Saying Thank You!

If you've been following my series of social media for authors, then you are using RSS, monitoring your name and your book's title, trying out Twitter and getting more comfortable with all this stuff.

Yes it takes time, but hasn't RSS made Googling yourself so much easier?

What is the next step? Getting involved in the conversation about your book. When you get notified in your RSS reader that someone mentioned reading your book, click through and leave a comment. It is so powerful when an author says, "Thank you for reading my book."

RSS means you can say thank you within a day (or hours) of the post going up. This is a great way to move from having readers to having a community of readers.
