Get More Twitter Followers

I'm a numbers person. If I can watch numbers go up and down, I can become obsessed. I check my affiliate account daily to see how many clicks I've gotten (and hopefully a few purchases). I check my KDP account a few times a day to see if anyone has bought my book (in case you haven't gotten your copy, here's the link to it on Amazon). I also check my Twitter follower number.

While I might be obsessed with numbers, I don't try to play games with them. When I first started out on Twitter the going advice for gaining followers was to follow 20 or so people every day and then weekly unfollow anyone who didn't follow you back. I didn't subscribe to this method. Many of the people that did this (and continue to do it) have ran up on a brick wall, also known as the Twitter follower to following ratio. The ratio is you have to follow 2 people for every 1 follower. This ratio comes into play once you follow 2,000 people.

I feel like I have a decent following on Twitter: 3,900. How many do I follow? 516. According to, of the 516 I follow, 83 do not follow me back. That means 3,467 people follow me, but I don't follow them back.

Make people want to follow you
Why do I follow 83 people who do not follow me back? Because they have content I'm interested in. Several of them are publisher accounts or news organizations. The accounts that are for individuals are people who are thought leaders in their field. When I have interacted with any of them on Twitter, they do respond to me. I understand that I do not regularly have content that would be of interest to them. I'm okay with them not following me.

Instead of doing the follow/unfollow thing, I concentrated on creating tweets that were entertaining and/or informative. I try to stay on topic. Since I'm using my account to promote my blog, that means I limit tweets about my mundane personal life - unless it has to do with reading, books, blogging, or authors.

Just as I follow people for their content, I want people to follow me for what I have to say.

Get discovered
One of the reason the recommend advice for gaining Twitter followers was to follow people in hopes of them following back is so people knew you were on Twitter. There are more than 500 million active Twitter account and 135,000 new accounts are created everyday (Statistics Brain). Getting noticed on Twitter is a difficult.

Now if you are creating good content then your tweets should get retweeted. Your followers will share your content with their followers, thus exposing you to them. Creating content that is retweetable is a great way to gain followers. To make your tweets more retweetable try limiting the number of characters used to 120. If people can comment on the tweet while retweeting it is more likely to responded to by their followers.

I gained about half of my followers through giveaways. I have participated in several sponsored giveaways that allowed me to include my Twitter handle. People wanting to enter the giveaway could follow me for an extra entry. I say half, but it may be much less as I also see an increase of unfollows following the conclusion of a giveaway. The ones that stick around like what I'm tweeting.

Focus on relationships
The biggest reason I did not buy into the follow/unfollow was because the point of Twitter is to build relationships. I joined Twitter for its networking potential. The only way to exploit that potential is to build relationships with my followers.

The best way to build relationships is to reply to tweets. Now reply tweets do get limited visibility. You might have noticed people putting a period (.) in front of the @. That is suppose to help increase the visibility of the tweet. By responding to tweets in your stream you can demonstrate your knowledge of a subject, openness to interaction with fans, and just general goodwill and helpfulness.

Twitter chats
Participating in a chat on Twitter really helps with your discoverability as well as building relationships with followers. I know a lot of people tell me they don't have time to participate in a chat. I say you just haven't given it a priority. There are a lot of chats that happen each week. Even participating in just one chat a month will help increase your followers. I always gain followers when participating in chats. #Indiechat meets on Tuesdays at 9 pm eastern, #K8chat is Thursdays at 9 pm eastern, #Indieview is at at 11 am eastern Wednesdays.

Keep your followers
You like to get new followers, right? Well so do those who follow you. I make an attempt to follow anyone who interacts with me. If they reply to a tweet or retweet one of my tweets, I'll follow them.

And above all else, continue to provide your followers with interesting and informative content.

Gabrielle Arrowsmith: I Hear Voices

I am not a singer. Nuh-uh, no way. I know my talents fairly well, and I am certain singing is not among them. For this reason, I do most of my singing in my head. Man can I hit the high notes and flawlessly sing the runs when I do! My confidence blossoms so I open my mouth and belt it out but, to my dismay, the internal practice has not improved the external sound.

Similarly, most of the time readers read and writers write inside our heads. This begs the question, what do the characters sound like when their voices have a real, spoken quality? When I posed the question to myself about the characters in my novel, Concealed in the Shadows, I was surprised and a little disappointed to realize that there were prominent characters for who I couldn’t quite hear their voice apart from the ones I used for them in my head. Because the characters’ voices were internalized, many of them (especially the females) have a quality to their voice that is too much like my own – yikes!

One of my characters, Della, has a high-pitched voice, but her words are so sweetly flowing, by way of her good nature and Southern drawl, that it is not an unpleasant voice at all. If I heard a replication of her voice in a crowd, I would think, “Hey! That woman sounds just like Della!"

I wish I could say the same would be true for all of the characters that I’ve created. I know that as I further develop characters from Concealed in the Shadows, and introduce new characters in the second installment, I am focusing on really hearing the voices of my characters. Not just what their thoughts and decisions would be, but exactly how they would express such things to other characters. It may seem like a simple practice, but I believe it is already deepening the richness of character development in my second book.

Buy Concealed on the Shadows at Amazon

Let me give you an inside peek on how I am doing this: When I introduce a new character to the story, I ask them random and sometimes bizarre questions, like you might find in a character interview. I think about the responses for sometime, but actually have the character speak the answer back to me. This is when I listen to the sound of their voice and the way that they speak. It’s a bonus that I am gaining background information and personal preferences of the character at the same time!  

So is it crazy that I hear voices in my head? No way! Authors make their livelihood from talking and listening to fictional characters. I urge all of you aspiring writers and authors alike to listen to your characters’ voices. Get to know them, what they sound like, and the many mannerisms that will make your character resonate as a real person to the reader.

About the Author:
Gabrielle Arrowsmith was born to her loving mother, father, and older brother on August 16th, 1988. She grew up in the small town of Ham Lake, MN enjoying soccer, school, and adventuresome play with her brother and cousins (who were much like siblings).
As she grew older, her desire to write led her to fill many diaries and notebooks with her thoughts, poems, stories, and scripts, some of which were even turned into rudimentary short films. Some of her other adolescent hobbies included reading, playing soccer, acting, and playing piano.
Gabrielle recalls her junior year in high school as the time when she first believed in the worth of her writing. Her AP course that year both challenged and celebrated her craft. Aiming for perfection caused her to slave over her work, but only so much as to allow time for her other college-level courses, soccer, track, National Honor Society, and school plays.
From 2006-2009 she attended the College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, MN where she earned a degree in Elementary Education with minors in mathematics and Spanish language. She played collegiate soccer for the Saints, volunteered often, worked two on-campus jobs, and acted in three theater productions.
For the past three years, Gabrielle has taught third through sixth graders in various school settings. The relationships she has formed with her students have been very meaningful. However, after rediscovering her passion for storytelling (through both writing and acting) during the summer of 2012, Gabrielle recently decided to transition to day-to-day substitute teaching in order to pursue both of these creative outlets. She will follow these passions wherever they take her. She also continues to enjoy both playing and coaching soccer.

Bloggers Wanted: Sorrow's Point Tour

October 15 - 23
Reviews, interviews, guest posts, prizes & more!

Not all exorcists are created equal- especially those that are “marked”.

When defrocked ex-priest, Jimmy Holiday, agrees to help an old friend’s sick daughter, Lucy, he unearths unexpected horrors. Blackmoor, his friend’s new residence, has a dark history that makes it appear almost alive. Jimmy must decide if Lucy is only ill, or if the haunting of the house and her apparent possession are real.

After the house begins affecting him as well; seeing colors of magic and his voice taking on an unusual power, Jimmy discovers that he is apparently “marked”. Whatever being “marked” means, Jimmy doesn’t care. He wants to help Lucy. Helping Lucy means performing the exorcism.

Jimmy knows the ceremony, but it's belief that matters. And if a demon is using a little girl as a meatsuit, his faith had better be strong enough to kick it back to Hell. Otherwise, he might damn them both.

Featured Book: Troubled Daughters, Twisted Wives

Stories from the Trailblazers of Domestic Suspense

Fourteen chilling tales from the pioneering women who created the domestic suspense genre
Murderous wives, deranged husbands, deceitful children, and vengeful friends. Few know these characters—and their creators—better than Sarah Weinman. One of today’s preeminent authorities on crime fiction, Weinman asks: Where would bestselling authors like Gillian Flynn, Sue Grafton, or Tana French be without the women writers who came before them?
In Troubled Daughters, Twisted Wives, Weinman brings together fourteen hair-raising tales by women who—from the 1940s through the mid-1970s—took a scalpel to contemporary society and sliced away to reveal its dark essence. Lovers of crime fiction from any era will welcome this deliciously dark tribute to a largely forgotten generation of women writers.

Q&A with editor Sarah Weinman

What inspired you to compile this anthology? Were you working on it before the big splash created by GONE GIRL? 

TROUBLED DAUGHTERS emerged from an essay I wrote for the literary magazine Tin House. I'd been approached by an editor there to write something for their themed "The Mysterious" issue, and I'd long contemplated why it seemed that a fair number of female crime writers working around or after World War II through the mid-1970s weren't really part of the larger critical conversation. They weren't hard boiled per se, but they weren't out-and-out cozy, either. Hammett and Chandler and Cain, yes; but why not Marie Belloc Lowndes and Elisabeth Sanxay Holding and Vera Caspary? Why Ross Macdonald but not his wife, Margaret Millar, who published books before he did and garnered critical and commercial acclaim first? I knew after writing the essay that I wasn't done with the subject, and when I had lunch with an editor at Penguin on an unrelated matter and started going on, rather enthusiastically, about this widespread neglect, he said, "sounds like there's an anthology in this. Why don't you send me a proposal?" It took a while to organize, but eventually I did, and Penguin bought the anthology. Publishing being what it is, it's taken a little less than two years from acquisition to release date.

To answer your other question, I had just started putting the anthology together when it became clear that GONE GIRL was going to be a massive hit, and that I had a very easy one-sentence pitch for TROUBLED DAUGHTERS: “If you loved GONE GIRL, here's an entire generation of writers who helped make that book possible, and who deserve to be rescued from the shadows.” Flynn clearly tapped into contemporary anxieties about marriage, identity, high expectations, and whether we can really be true to ourselves and the ones we profess to love. So it's fascinating to explore an earlier time when many of the very same anxieties women had manifested itself, even as the very concept of independent womanhood was perceived to be a great threat. 

What is “domestic suspense”? What relationship does it have to other kinds of crime fiction?

Domestic suspense is a catch-all term for work largely published by women and describing the plight of women -- wives, daughters, the elderly, spinsters, the underserved, the overlooked, and many other phrases used then but thankfully, not so much now -- as World War II was coming to a close and the feminist movement dawned. Without domestic suspense you couldn't have contemporary psychological suspense. Conversely, the work of people like Gillian Flynn, Laura Lippman, Megan Abbott, Sophie Hannah, Tana French, and many more would not be possible without the likes of Hughes, Jackson, Millar, Highsmith, and -- though not included in TROUBLED DAUGHTERS for reasons outside the scope of this interview -- Ruth Rendell, Mary Higgins Clark, Mignon Eberhart, and more.

Which one of the authors in your collection would you like to see get more credit? 

Bear in mind my answer will change daily, but right now, I'll say Joyce Harrington. She won an Edgar Award for her very first short story – “The Purple Shroud”, included in TROUBLED DAUGHTERS – but she spent most of the 70s and 80s writing stories of equal if not greater excellence. Harrington also published three novels: No One Knows My Name (1981), set in a summer stock theater troupe; Family Reunion (1982), a very creepy Southern Gothic with quite the toxic family; and Dreemz of the Night (1987), a terrific mystery set in the then-contemporary New York City graffiti world. I love that book of hers the best because of the window it unexpectedly opened on a nearly unrecognizable version of the five boroughs. 

What was the first domestic suspense you ever read?

Mary Higgins Clark’s Where Are The Children?, back in eleventh grade. That book scared the hell out of me, and only later did I realize what a pivotal book that was. 

What is the difference between “classic” domestic suspense and the writing of the new generation (Megan Abbott, Laura Lippman, Gillian Flynn, Tana French, etc.)?

Largely the sensibility afforded by contemporary times. But there are many more similarities. For example, Lippman’s most recent novel, And When She Was Good, was about a suburban madam, and the way in which the suspense unfolded and she depicted Heloise’s nose for business and growing internal tensions could have been written by Margaret Millar sixty years ago (albeit with more dated references to technology.) When I first read Megan Abbott I thought immediately of Dorothy Hughes’ In A Lonely Place. The DNA of so many of these earlier writers inserted themselves into those writing today, whether they realize it consciously. 

Do you think women write better domestic suspense? If so, why or why not?

I'm a big fan of Harlan Coben and Linwood Barclay’s work, both of whom certainly work in the domestic suspense field. Ira Levin’s books work so well because he knew exactly what domestic anxiety buttons to push – Rosemary’s Baby and The Stepford Wives absolutely count as domestic suspense (and, to a certain extent, A Kiss Before Dying.) That said, women are still struggling with the work/life balance, if I may drop in some cliches like “having it all” or “leaning in.” So there are more of them exploring these themes in a fictional universe, and that means more of them are doing so with great success and acclaim. I'd like to see more men write domestic thrillers and more women write traditionally “male” subgenres so that we can blur the lines once and for all. But forty, fifty, sixty years ago, there weren't as many options. 

You mention in your intro to TROUBLED DAUGHTERS, TWISTED WIVES that the World Wars, particularly WWII, shaped the lives of domestic suspense writers, and consequently, what they wrote. Is there a similar “seismic event” that might have shaped the new domestic suspense, in your opinion?

I think these forces were at work already, but I hope that, twenty years or later from now, someone looks back at the current generation of women writers and edits a fabulous anthology explaining just how much the 2008 Great Recession changed everything. Which is to say, I think it did, and we still don't know by how much. 

If this kind of fiction grew out of post-war culture, particularly the idealization of women’s role in the domestic sphere and the anxieties and yearnings hidden behind that glossy picture of the happy home, is there anything analogous being written today?

Would that these anxieties could disappear entirely! But it’s pretty clear that any day’s headlines shows how far we still have to go. (Case in point: Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In.) I do think it’s why Gone Girl was such a massive hit, and why publishers are now on the hunt for that “next Gone Girl” (best current candidate: ASA Harrison's debut The Silent Wife, just published as I write this, and released more than two months after her premature death from cancer.) Now we have domestic suspense mixed with the anxieties associated with technology, and there's a great deal of terrain to explore there. 

I also don’t want to exclude men unduly here; Harlan Coben and Linwood Barclay also write very gripping domestic suspense tales. 

At your companion website,, the tagline is “celebrating an overlooked generation of female suspense writers.” Why have they been overlooked? What influence do you think these women writers had, both on the genre and on culture as a whole?

The author Tom Bissell wrote an excellent essay for the Boston Review back in 2000 about his time as an assistant editor at Norton, discovering, and then republishing, the work of Paula Fox, and the tremendous responsibility (and related fear) of being responsible for a writer's renaissance. Fate has a tendency to be cruel and quixotic about who merits posthumous recognition and who does not. I feel much the same way about the 14 writers included in TROUBLED DAUGHTERS. So many of them won or were nominated for awards (like the Edgar), sold many thousands of copies, and were well-reviewed. But it's hard not to think that because their subjects were primarily "feminine" and "domestic" they weren't taken as seriously as the men, even though in many cases, the women wrote with less sentimentality and more subtlety.

Some of the writers included in TROUBLED DAUGHTERS, like Patricia Highsmith and Shirley Jackson, may not need my editorial assistance. But looking at Highsmith’s first-published short story "The Heroine" or Jackson's "Louisa, Please Come Home" in the broader context of what was going on over this three-decade period is what's key, as is seeing the importance of domestic concerns to female noir giants like Vera Caspary, Dorothy B. Hughes, and Margaret Millar.

What I really hope is that the anthology allows readers to sample and be introduced to writers who have fallen by the proverbial wayside. Raymond Chandler held up Elisabeth Sanxay Holding up as his equal. Helen Nielsen is something of an enigma to me, but “Don’t Sit Under The Apple Tree” demonstrates the anxiety of being the other woman-turned-new wife and how it never recedes.  Nedra Tyre was both an avid mystery fan  and passionate about social justice and the poor, stemming from a previous life as a social worker; it’s why “A Nice Place to Stay” packs the punch it does. Barbara Callahan never published a novel during her lifetime, but "Lavender Lady", published early in her career, has the sense of depth and feeling of an experienced practitioner of prose and of emotional stakes.

Interview with Diane Adams Taylor

What is the working title of your book?

Circles in Time is my first published book. It came out in May 2012 and was published by Tate Publishing. I am currently working on the final edits of my manuscript called The Healer of Wounded Souls. The new work should be out in publication sometime in 2013.

Where did the idea come from for the book?

In my work Circles in Time I used some of my own experiences from living through an abusive marriage. I enhanced this story by threading the topic of reincarnation throughout the novel.

In my new work The Healer of Wounded Souls, I created new characters but kept a spiritual bent in healing wounded warriors. It is  more of a thriller as the heroine, Hope is pursued for her ability to heal.

What genre does your book fall under?

Circles in Time is considered religious fiction but I believe it is more spiritual in nature. It might also be found under  women’s fiction.

The Healer of Wounded Souls is fiction but also a suspense novel with some spirituality included.

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

In Circles in Time, I could see Nicole Kidman or Julianne Moore as the heroine, Faith. Both of those actresses have a touch of naiveté but have some life experiences to enhance the role. I am not quite sure who would be appropriate to play Jake.

In The Healer of Wounded Souls, I could see Anne Hathaway playing the heroine, Hope. I think she brings some innocence to the role whereas  I think Pierce Brosnan would be excellent as Nick Logan.

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

In Circles in Time, the heroine, Faith struggles with her abusive marriage to a man who she finds out has been abusing her for centuries.
In The Healer of Wounded Souls, the heroine, Hope is charged with healing as many wounded warriors as she can before terrorists manage to stop her.  

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?

My book, Circles in Time, is represented by Tate Publishing.

My new book, The Healer of Wounded Souls, is being published by Bush Publishing Company.

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

I wrote the first draft of Circles in Time in about six months but the editor had me make some changes to the original first draft (I had to shorten it from 115,000 words to 75,000 words). From first manuscript to final edit, it was nearly a year.

I worked on the first draft of The Healer of Wounded Souls for about six months as well. The re-writes have taken me an additional few months and I continually work to refine it. 

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

Circles in Time has a prevalent theme of reincarnation throughout the story of an abusive marriage. I am not able to find similar stories.

The Healer of Wounded Souls has a theme of healing wounded warriors. The terrorists go after the heroine and hunt her down as they disapprove of her actions. Again I did not find a similar work of fiction to compare this work to others in the same genre but the closest might be a thriller like the Jason Bourne books.

Who or What inspired you to write this book?

Circles in Time was inspired by some actual events which occurred. I needed to release some of these negative experiences in order to heal myself, physically, emotionally and spiritually.

The Healer of Wounded Souls was inspired by a news story which told of a doctor healing people through prayer. The many wounded warriors returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan also struck a chord with me.

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

I write to educate, to inform, to heal and to provide inspiration to others. Included in my work are words of wisdom to help each and every individual to live a better life with more purpose. My novels do not always have the perfect story-book ending but then again they are more true to life.

Where might we find your books?

Circles in Time is available at, Barnes &, Tate and my website  You can find the Kindle version as well as the Nook version available at those sites.

The Healer of Wounded Souls will be available in September 2013.
