Innovative Social Media Promotion

Many thanks to my Twitter friend Jennifer (AKA @Mami2Mommy) for sharing this photo. Jennifer gave away a copy of my novel AMERICA LIBRE during the Atlanta Latino Peachtree Festival in a very innovative way: She sent messages of her location over Twitter. The first person who found her won the book.

Congratulations to the winner -- and to Jennifer for her imaginative use of social media.

I urge you to read and follow Jennifer's informative Mami 2 Mommy blog/
