Someone who was shortlisted in the 2014 CWA DD has won a 3 book deal. Her publisher's site say they aren't interested in submissions from writers unless they are already set up on Facebook, Twitter and have a Blog and use them all regularly. Sounds like I'd better pack in writing. I don't think I've ever read a book and then searched for the author's blog, FB account or sought to follow them on Twitter. I have a life outside reading and writing - unfortunately it's not exciting enough to tell people about it on these other media. Is everyone else a regular FB, Twitterer and Blogger?
