Squeezing a Book Through Twitter, 140 Characters at a Time

I have been sharing my book, Parallel Mind, The Art of Creativity, through Twitter, by Tweeting excerpts in the form of quotes. I post quotes whenever I am online. The first 45 pages of my book gave me over 50 phrases that could be used as quotes. My Twitter account name is the same as my book:

http://www.twitter.com/parallelmind

Periodically, I “reprint” these quotes on my book’s blog. You can read some of them here:

Of course, this is one way that I have found to promote my book. I follow others who use hashtags such as #quotes, #inspiration, #creativity, #art, and #artists, and many of them now follow me, hopefully for the quotes. I wonder what other unusual ways people are using Twitter?
