It’s no secret that I like to read and have extremely eclectic taste in literature. So, it would make sense that I follow a variety of authors on Twitter. Here are some of the best:
- Matthew Pearl (@MatthewPearl): Author of the Dante Club, the Poe Shadow, and the Last Dickens. Extremely gracious and interacts with fans and followers.
- Neil Gaiman (@neilhimself): Author of Coraline, Stardust, the Graveyard Book, the Sandman graphic novel series, Good Omens with Terry Pratchett, and many other works. Fun to follow and often promotes his events and posts special opportunities and other fun things in his Tweet stream.
- Holly Black (@hollyblack): Author of Tithe, Valiant, and Ironside, as well as the popular Spiderwick Chronicle series, and most recently, the graphic novels in the Good Neighbors series. Responds to many of her followers and fans both on Twitter and in general. She also has a public livejournal account, which she updates herself and receives and responds to comments in.
- Paulo Coelho (@paulocoelho): Author of the Alchemist, Brida, the Witch of Portobello, the Winner Stands Alone and many others. Updates a few times a day with inspirational quotes or words of wisdom in both Spanish and English.
