Another reason I love this site is because it draws readers to your books. No, really. And without even having to whap them over the head with a huge BUY MY BOOK stick. People see your photos, get a feel for who you are, and eventually toodle their way over to your website. Then let the whapping begin.
Love number three is that I get a peek into the lives of some of my favorite authors just by following them. Example? I've learned that Laura Frantz cooks some amazing southern dishes.
I also love the creative ways that people use Instagram. Bibliophile Jakub Pavlovský uses his account simply to encourage the love of reading. He posts pix of himself reading a book in a variety of places such as a bank vault, a subway station, in the rubble of a building, on pallets of cement mix, and more.
There's a lot to love about Instagram so try it out yourself. And feel free to check out my account HERE.
