A Crime Fiction Twitter Directory

I've noticed folks putting various Twitter author directories together lately. I thought if I found one that represented the crime fiction authors well, I'd link to it here. I haven't come across one...not to say there isn't one, I just haven't stumbled on it myself. So, I thought I'd put one together myself of the crime fiction industry folks I'm aware of on Twitter. Then if you know of some others that I'm missing, let me know in the comments and I'll get them added on the list and I'll probably also follow them on my own Twitter account. Just a note, there are other authors on Twitter, but if they haven't been active since, say July, I didn't include them on my list. Each of their twitter names is linked directly to their Twitter page, so if you'd like to follow them, you can easily click on the link and follow!

Alright then, let's start with the authors I know of - provided I can recall my alphabet today, I'll put them in alphabetical order by last name:

And here are some additional folks in the crime fiction community that are folks to follow on Twitter:



Publishers/Organizations/Other Industry-Related Tweeters

O.k., so there's my list to share with you. I'm probably missing some important folks, so you can let me know in the comments who you think should be added. And of course I hope you'll follow me as well. You can do so by clicking my little Twitter Bird over in the sidebar.

Thanks ladies! I'm going to get my list updated when I get home this evening. Glad to have the help. Then I'll make it a regular link over in my sidebar so people can always access it easily if they want to.

You're making me think I'm missing out by not twittering.

Janet Rudolph September 11, 2009 at 11:36 AM  

What a great list and wonderful additions from Lesa. Much better than clogging Twitter feeds with #FF.

I also follow foodies, so I'll have to continue some #FF.

Be sure and post again throughout the day. Some twitters only check in occasionally.

Thanks so much for including me on your list and for compiling this in the first place. I'm a lazy Twitterer so this is good to have.
