How do successful authors engage their fans on social media? And what can authors post on social media besides links to their own books?

Below you’ll find 23 ideas, along with examples from successful authors. Many of these tactics can help promote a book, but in more creative and engaging ways than simply posting a link to a book’s retailer page.

Publishers and agents, this post is written for authors. We encourage you to share it with your authors to help them build more engaging profiles.

Authors, we hope hope you find the list useful — and please share your great ideas in the comments!...
