Salted With Fire:
Nancy LaRonda Johnson says,
Black magic, murder, insanity, humor, honor and devotion. Salted With Fire is a journey of flash fiction and poetry that shows my writing transformation from worldly to wanting to please God.
Flash fiction is my passion; poetry is my release. I love creating a complete story, with a beginning, middle and end, with twists, humor, drama, compassion and horror, all under 1000 words. Salted With Fireisn’t just a book of stories and poetry, it is my journey as a writer, from writing only for the mere joy of it regardless of the message, to writing stories that highlight God’s will for people, even if the stories themselves are not religious in nature.
Inside are fifteen flash fiction pieces and twelve poems with full-color pictures, and short Biblical discussions after each story.

And here's Nancy's first book. And be sure to visit her at her WEBPAGE.
Promoting your books and having them noticed is a hard job when you're in a sea of writers doing it too. But there are some things you can do to make that job a bit easier and more effective. Let's tackle that wonderous 140 character beastie, Twitter.
1) Give your Twitter page some "bling." By that I mean put wallpaper up for your background. Use any image that expresses your brand.
2) Find some people to follow that are recognized in the business. If they use hashtags, you should use the ones they use.
3) I've posted this before, but maybe it's worth repeating. Clean up your Twitter Follower list once in a while. If people aren't following you, it's better to unfollow and find new people who are interested in what you have to say in those 140 characters. Here's the LINK to that clean-up site.
4) I'm scheduling my Tweets now, so I can plan a few days ahead for what I want to put out about my blog or my events. It's easy to schedule 2 in the morning and 2 in the late afternoon. The one problem: I have to reload the Tweedeck page a lot. For some reason the scheduling drop down freezes on me. If you know why that happens, let us know.
5) Keep your Tweets short so it's easy for others to RT and lose some of your message.
Here's someone who knows more about this than I do ( or care to).
