One of the newer players in the social media space, Pinterest has fast become a powerhouse. Driven by visual content–including images and video–Pinterest is a great place for authors to post favorite book covers (including your own), posters or screen captures from favorite movies, photos related to your research, or even share quotes. (Well, quotes that have been typed onto an image.)
You can create boards–these are defined by the categories for the images you upload. For example, you might start a board for “Research” and one for “Actors Who Should Play My Characters” and one for “Beautiful Locations Where My Books Are Set.” This a chance to build a relationship with your audience through visual content. What kind of images best represent your brand? What kind of images will engage your target reader? What images will build a bridge between you and that reader?
