New Author Promo Idea

Use your Twitter bios as a "flash" query. You know how Flash Fiction is a full story in about 50 - 200 words (which, by the way, is a great writing exercise)?

Yeah. Do that, but a query, in your bio. It's like the ultimate log line challenge, and it just might get you noticed.

Some log line theory and examples:


  1. Good point. There's only 160 characters to work with, but I took a stab at it. I think this bio is more focused on my target audience than what I had before. Thanks for the suggestion.

  2. That was great! I had a good logline before, but it's tighter now and I hadn't considered putting it in my twitter bio. ;D

  3. Wonderful idea. When it's time to officially send out my queries, (in midst of revisions) I'll try this!

  4. Hmmm...I likey. Thanks for the suggestion!
