New Twitter Trick For All CrossReads Authors

Twitter-ific! is Now Open

by: Staci Stallings

Do your Twitter posts get out to as many readers as they can?

CrossReads is here to help you expand your reach!

Twitter-ific has now opened for the month of August 2013.  With Twitter-ific you can purchase space on the @_CrossReads Twitter feed which reaches 1,700+ followers (and growing!).

For only $10 (for nonmembers and Bronze members) and $5 (for Silver, Gold, and Platinum members), five of your tweets will be sent out to the @_CrossReads list every day for a month!

It’s super-simple to get started tweeting with us.

Just Click HERE!

Also, we’re proud to partner with the all-new Twitter SOS, a site dedicated to helping you get the most from your tweeting experience (no purchase necessary)!

At Twitter SOS, you can learn to partner with others on Twitter Exchanges, write great tweets, and find other affordable places to purchase tweets on feeds just like Twitter-ific!

Get People Talking about You and Your Book!

A CrossReads Book Blast might be just the thing to jump start your promotions. Whether it’s a new release or an older title, CrossReads can help you promote it. The price for a Book Blast varies depending on your membership level, but the idea is that an author offers an Amazon Gift Card as the grand prize, and CrossReads will post the contest on at least 25 blogs!

Available Dates:  Sept. 3, Oct. 15
