The perks of social media are so many that we have lost count. While reading our favourite book recently, we just realised how awesome it is to have our favourite authors on Instagram, Twitter, etc. Gone are the times when the only information we had about our most loved authors was the ‘About the author’ section of a book. Social Media now gives us a peek into their lives, their writing process and their thoughts, which helps us build a profound and direct relationship with these authors.
Dealing with these thoughts, we ended up stalking many authors and let me tell you, the stalking went on for hours and hours. Some feeds were so intriguing that we almost made some life-altering decisions while going through their profiles. So to give a taste of happiness, we have curated a list of authors whose Instagram handle is terrific. What are you waiting for? Get going now!
