Raven Pierce vowed to escape the hot and humid climate of Missouri and never look back. After completing her graduate program, she drags her sun-loving, winter-hating best friend to start a new life in Minnesota with its cold crisp air and blankets of snow. Raven’s main focus is her new career and truly establishing her own identity. The last thing she intends to do as she is building a new life is to fall in love. As her luck would have it, one evening a minor accident sends Mr. Tall-Dark-and-Handsome to her rescue. What starts out as the perfect relationship begins to turn challenging when tragedy strikes and pulls her grief-stricken boyfriend into a dark and unpredictable frame of mind. Raven finds herself fighting for love in an unfamiliar, confusing, and sometimes dark terrain.

Has Social Media Impacted Your Reading Habits?

Has Social Media Impacted Your Reading Habits?  

I created a Twitter account to follow my favorite authors over a year ago.  Soon after, I quickly learned that social media was an amazing tool.  I was able to discover new authors, connect with bloggers who introduced me to new books, and I was able to share my thoughts and opinions on books I had just read. Social media is definitely a powerful marketing tool!

Again, I think social media is amazing.  It has impacted my daily reading habits.  I admit, I spend many hours of my day reading blog posts and online articles.  I check my Facebook numerous times a day as well. Social media keeps me up to date. Through both Twitter and Facebook, I learn about giveaways, cover reveals and what new books an author is working on. I love being so well informed.

I also love that I am able to keep in touch with authors.  I get so excited when I get a reply from one of my favorite authors.   It really brightens my day.  I think social media has had a positive impact on reading overall.  Many authors have been discovered this way.  Indie authors (my favorite kind) benefit from their followers who re-tweet and support them.

I have also met many amazing people via social media who share my love of reading.  There are so many awesome bloggers out there too.  I have been fortunate to interact with these wonderful and supportive bloggers who make my cyber experience all the more enjoyable.

You can interact with me.  Follow me on Twitter @Read_Wine_Blog or on Facebook too.

Now tell me, has social media impacted your reading habits?
