Twitter Recommendations Rocket Backlist Book Into Amazon Top 250

In November, Twitter recommendations from Neil Gaiman (@neilhimself) and William Gibson (@GreatDismal) sent a reprinted version of a six-year-old book rocketing up the Amazon UK charts.

eBookNewser has more: “Twitter can have a lot of power when it comes to reviving an old book. Author Sarah Salway learned this when her book  which was originally published in 2004, was republished by the Friday Project this past November. After catching the eyes of some influential Twitter users, this buried book managed to make its way up the Kindle charts.”

What do you think–could Twitter recommendations revive an author’s backlist? Our sibling blog also reminded authors to check out our best book reviewers on Twitter directory to interact with other influential Twitter readers.
