By Marcy Kennedy (@MarcyKennedy)

I hope all of you are enjoying the final days of summer. In September, I’ll resume my regular three-day-a-week blogging schedule here, but until then I have another guest post to share with you.

Last week, I visited Joel Friedlander’s Book Designer blog to talk about how Twitter lists can help build your author platform. Enjoy!

If you’d like to learn more about Twitter, in September I’m offering two self-paced email courses through WANA International.

A Beginner’s Guide to Twitter ($25) starts on August 31st and covers essential terminology, setting up your Twitter account, choosing a custom header and profile background to represent your brand, writing an outstanding bio, choosing between TweetDeck and Hootsuite (as well as how to customize the one you choose), using columns, using lists, short links, how to enable a “tweet” button on your website, and most importantly, how to stay safe.

An Advanced Guide to Twitter ($25) starts on September 14th and covers hashtags, what to tweet (and when’s the best time to tweet it), time management, using images to stand out, hosting events on Twitter, and much more. Click here to learn more.
