Recently, our Jim Devitt wrote a couple of posts about Instagram, and we had a tutorial with some tips for those of you who are less tech savvy. And then, Melissa Pearl told us about Repost. Check those out, then come back here and have some fun with our Instagram Follow Fest.
This is how it works: If you are an author, publisher, publicist, literary agent, book reviewer, librarian (or especially a book-lover), etc., in the comments below, paste in the link for your Instagram handle. Share the link to this post, so we can get others to do the same. Make sure you show some love to the handles in the comments above yours, and check back throughout the day to catch up. (Remember: If you right-click the link, you can open it in a new tab so you don’t have to constantly page back and forth.)
This should be fun and should generate a lot of follows for everyone who plays. We’ll kick things off with ours. Let’s get the party started! http://www.instagram.com/AuthorKSBrooks. (handle = @AuthorKSBrooks) Take the handle and put it into your phone, then click follow. ONE handle per person, please.
PLEASE be sure to reciprocate by following those who follow you. This is give and take. If everyone plays by the golden rule, we all benefit.

Rosie, your account requires permission to follow. I don’t know if you’re aware of that.
Nice to find you there. Followed Armand, Stevie, and of course, KS!

I love this! Instagram is such a great way to connect and inspire. And an Instagram Follow Fest – what a fabulous idea! Will follow all who commented previously and will be checking back for additional commenters. Thanks in advance for checking out both of my insta accounts 🙂
Hahaha! Andrea- I’ve already been following you for a while. I thought celestial thread sounded familiar. I’m @writingoutloud?
That’s so cool! And now our paths have crossed on Indies Unlimited – definitely a sign, don’t you think? ? Thanks for the follow(s), we gave you a couple right back!
Thank you! I just had an article posted about Hay-on-Wye in Wales. The whole town is bookshops? I hope you check it out bit.ly/TownofBooks
Let me know if you do.
Whaaaat?! A tiny town made up of thirty-two lovely bookshops? What a terrific article, thank you for sharing!
I love Instagram. I’ve set my posts to automatically repost on my Facebook author page and my Twitter account. I can take a picture with my phone and instantly post it to more than 45,000 followers on those 3 sites. You can find me at: https://www.instagram.com/hillbillysavant/
I will follow everyone.

I ? the Instagram community. They’ve been fabulous supporters. Thanks for this party and for helping us get our accounts out there!
Instagram is my personal treat at the end of my writing day. I’m still new, though, so I’m especially glad for the opportunity to meet a bunch of other writer/reader/photographers. Thanks!
Oops! New enough to forget to put my link https://www.instagram.com/donnahustonmurray/
I have followed back everyone who has followed me so far! 🙂
