Incredible Shrinking Book Review

After six months on Twitter, the website Flashlight Worthy Books has built a dedicated group of 64,000 followers–a flourishing new outlet for writers and readers.

As traditional book review outlets shrink, this site is bringing the book review into the micro-blogosphere with customized book lists. GalleyCat caught up with Flashlight Worthy co-founder Eric Mueller for an exclusive interview about the future of the book review and how publishers can get involved with his popular website.

The interview was shot at O’Reilly Media’s Twitter Boot Camp, where experts pondered this new social networking tool. GalleyCat also spoke with Twitter guru Carri Bugbee, getting advice about how to tweet for fictional characters.

How to Write a Fictional Twitter Feed

Earlier this year Carri Bugbee won an Shorty Award for a fictional Twitter feed–writing tweets about the life of “Mad Men” character Peggy Olson and gaining over 13,700 Twitter followers.

GalleyCat caught up with Bugbee at O’Reilly Media’s Twitter Boot Camp, where experts pondered this new social networking tool. In this exclusive interview, Bugbee tells publishers how they can build Twitter campaigns for imaginary characters–including a speculative riff on a Twitter feed for a Michael Connelly character.

Besides writing about the adventures of a young secretary in New York City, Bugbee works for Big Deal PR, building social media campaigns for different companies.
