Howey Great story. I was skeptical of Twitter at first, then started meeting tons of writers, agents, and publishers as I was going through the querying process. I ended up meeting my current publisher and landing a book deal via Twitter and sample pages, rather than the usual method of query/agent/proposal/publisher.<br /> <br /> Combined with my blog, which gave samples of my writing, Twitter was the difference between struggling for many months and possibly giving into the subsidy/vanity temptation and signing a traditional publishing contract. It’s a game-changing tool.
