If you like bookish tips and tidbits, you might want to consider following British author Joanne Harris on Twitter. She’s known for being the author of Chocolat and has a new book forthcoming called The Strawberry Thief. Joanne regularly does threads she calls “Ten Things”, which are sometimes advice and how-tos, and sometimes facts.
A recent thread was all about how to support an author, which, as an about-to-be-published debut novelist myself, I’m particularly thankful for.

And that’s not the only useful useful advice she’s had for interacting with writers, either.
And this morning's #TenTweets are; TEN THINGS NOT TO SAY TO A WRITER. Follow the hashtag to collect them all!
