Rally Around She Writes Press! (We Need Your Help!!)

Hi everybody! Brooke Warner and I will be traveling to Nashville next week to meet our team of sales representatives from Ingram Publisher Services, and tell them all about the fabulous books coming out next spring from She Writes Press. We will be introducing ourselves to these critical people for the first time, and telling the story of She Writes.com and the press. A big part of that story has to do with the power, engagement, and enthusiasm of this community, and we need YOU to take two seconds out of your day (really, two seconds) to help us demonstrate it.

So here is a "save the date."  On Tuesday, November 19th, at 1:30PM EST, we want to be able to tell a room full of sales reps to boot up Twitter and search for the hashtag #weloveSWP, and have their screens practically creak under the weight of all the tweets they see! Even better, give Ingram Publisher Services some love too. Sample tweets:

Hello to @kwicoff and @brooke_warner presenting today to @IngramContent reps in Nashville! #weloveSWP

@IngramContent, thank you for distributing @shewritesdotcom's new indie press! #weloveSWP

Please tweet starting early in the AM on Tuesday the 19th, as we need as many as possible before our 1:30 presentation.

And don't worry. We'll remind you.

here's the link to the map and the photo of the latest one:

The graph represents a network of 298 Twitter users whose recent tweets contained "#weloveSWP", taken from a data set limited to a maximum of 10,000 tweets. The network was obtained from Twitter on Tuesday, 19 November 2013 at 19:25 UTC.

You can see clusters of tweeters who are already linked to each other (by follows) and who are the "bridges" connecting to the nodes (central) in each cluster.  On the left are the individuals who could be recruited into the groups (or not, depending).

Doris Lessing 

There's a lesson to be learned from Doris Lessing; her life, not her death.  Her name remained iconic to the reading public and she was to win a Pulitzer Prize for 'The Golden Notebook' in 1963. Once, wondering how difficult it might be for a 'no name' writer to get accepted, she famously got her agent to submit  her latest work to her publisher Michael Joseph, under a fictitious name. He turned down Jane Somer's 'The Diary of a Good Neighbour'. Reviewers, considered Somer 'promising'. Let in on the deception, Michael Joseph finally published, but it didn't sell until the hoax was reveled.  Proof of the difficulties beginning writers, and even old pros, face in getting published.  Could this be the reason why more qualified writers self publish today?

I think my inner nerd is showing, but a social network map of all the tweets sounds really cool!

Liking all the comments.  :)  And, of course, #weloveSWP

Count me in!  Let's rock Twitter, girls!  Woo hoo!!

@ToryMcCagg... you can do either, or both.  If you have an account on computer, just load the app on your smartphone and login.  :)

I will make a social network map of all the tweets so you can see who and where your support is coming from. (via NodeXL, an open source online social network analysis tool)

Well, I guess this will get me to learn how to tweet. . . .  Um, does on tweet with a cell phone or a computer. :-(
