Sometimes the more normal a conversation, the more terror it holds. http://bit.ly/lvOgsh #SampleSunday #horror @dreyfusstrilogy

---

I'm out with Beavers group most of Sunday. I'll load up any that appear here before I leave, given the time lag. And try and pick up again when I return. Have fun everyone! (If someone can't find this and sets up a new samplesunday, someone add the above to it, please!)

#SampleSunday is a twitter event, to share reading samples between writers (and readers). For a full explanation, read this: http://bit.ly/dF8SHf Place your sample, in a message that is less than 140 characters long. Sample it on Twitter, if you are unsure. If you wish to see all tweets on your behalf, add your own twitter ID. Messages need to ELL:

1) Entice
2) Link - to your url
2) List - add your genre etc. through a hashtag #romance #horror #thriller etc

Links can be shortened via tiny url http://tinyurl.com/l or through tweetdeck (or hootsuite). You have to add the hastag #SampleSunday or #SS. #SS is used for other things, so #SampleSunday may be your best choice. Hit both, and read for yourself how each list reads. Some authors put both in. Retweets will add a few characters, so try and leave the message short - 130ish.

#SampleSunday, and tweeting, can be problematic for those new to the forum. For a long discussion of the pros and cons, please read this thread - Does Tweeting Work For You:

Hi Guys,

This worked great for me last week. I'll line up those tweets!

Dave

P.S. It's much easier for everyone else if you include your twitter name in your tweet like this:

#SampleSunday from @DavidGaughran is an old-school #SciFi #Technothriller called #TRANSFECTION http://bit.ly/jd6Pm3 pls RT
