Florida Book News - May 3, 2009

Welcome to Florida Book News

Florida Book News is now using

As of this morning (5/3/09) Florida Book News had 151 followers on Twitter and the list is growing daily. Some of our followers include: Random House, Writer's Digest, LA Times Books, Little Brown & Company, and London Book Fair.

Follow Florida Book News on Twitter. If you're on Twitter, too, just go to, sign in and click the follow button. You'll be able to follow the latest notices and tips on interesting events happening around the state and country. Also, I'm going to use it to send people to your websites from time to time.
If you aren't on Twitter and you aren't even sure what it is, here's a quick rundown. Twitter is a social media network. It's free and nothing terrible will happen to you if you join. In order to join, you only need to type in a name and password (you make up both).

Once you sign up and click the follow button under the Florida Book News icon (the flowers at the left), you'll begin receiving short announcements on your Twitter page when Florida Book News sends them out. It could be an announcement of an event in the area or an opportunity for writers or just a friendly reply to another tweeter. In addition, I'm following some of the best publishing sites around the world. You can get to their Twitter pages from the Florida Book News page. So, go to and enjoy the tweets.

Florida Book News ... it's the place to announce your new book, to tell about a book you continue to promote, a book signing, a meeting or presentation, your organization's meetings, conference or convention. It's the place for anything of interest to others about writing and books. Send your news to

This is a free service. If you would like to help support this endeavor, there is a button for donations to the right or if you prefer to use snail mail, send donations to Lou Belcher; P.O. Box 61228; Palm Bay, Florida, 32905. Thanks
