- blah - flags. So many flags.
We're re-launcing the #sffchrons hashtag on Twitter with an Ask Harebrain (aka author Bryan Wigmore) anything, this Friday at 6pm. That should be the morning/afternoon in America.
How it works.
If you're on twitter, join the conversation between 6-7 pm GMT by using the hashtag. Ask questions, have a laugh, pose connundrums. But everything must happen under the hashtag. That means we can all see the conversation. For those who want to keep an eye on their own timeline too, the multi-tasking maddos, something like Tweetdeck can be useful - and it can also help keep a track of the conversation.
If you're not on twitter, you can still see the conversation by going to the twitter website and following the hashtag #Sffchrons
Going forwards, I hope to do these on a fortnightly basis, and I hope to pull on the full breadth of the chrons.
Authors - let me know about your promotions, your new releases, your exciting news and I'll try to get something like what we're doing above schelduled for it. Or a writing clinic.
Readers - fancy a live book discussion? Let me know and I'll scheldule some of those. Or an author-talk - if I can, I'd even tag the author and see if they could check in.
Gamers - a new release to discuss?
Anything at all provided it's related to the chrons. The hashtag can also be used to check activity from Chronners (provided they remember to attach it to their tweet!) so it can be a really good way of seeing what's happening, and retweeting for each other. That can really help traffic to individual Chronners.
But! The events will be arranged centrally. Sometimes they'll be one person-centric, as with this week (although we all hope Otter can be bribed to turn up if we bring fishcakes). Sometimes we might have a panel. If there is an American-led one, or an Aussie-centred one, or anywhere else in the world, we can adjust the time to give more visibility in that market; it's about making it work for you.
So hit me up with your requests and suggestions.
