Today I have recorded the following videos of me reading my new poems.
‘The Owl’ by Kevin Morris
‘Early Autumn Morning’ by Kevin Morris
‘When a young Lady who is divine’ by Kevin Morris
‘I see sunlight’ by Kevin Morris
‘When I die’ by Kevin Morris
I enjoyed your readings. How are you finding TikTok?
I’m pleased you enjoyed my readings, Liz. I enjoy recording my poetry.
I find that my poetry receives many more views on Tiktok than is the case when I post on Youtube or Soundcloud. I’ve also found that the number of followers is growing more quickly than is the case with either of the other platforms.
A friend holds my iPhone while I read my poetry. This works well.
I had read about Tiktok as a means of promoting poetry and thought it was worth a try. Thus far I’m pleased with the results. Whether my readings will lead to anyone buying my books is a different matter. Have you considered giving the app a go?
Best wishes. Kevin
Thank you for responding to my question, Kevin. Thus far, I’ve been avoiding TikTok, although I’ve read that there is a very active book community. I hadn’t heard that it’s good for promoting poetry. I’d be interested to know whether you see a rise in book sales.
If you do decide to use Tiktok, I hope it goes well for you, Liz.
I’ll certainly let you know if I see an increase in book sales as a result of using Tiktok, although it may not be obvious that any increase is due to my use of the app.
All the best. Kevin
Thanks, Kevin. That post hoc fallacy can get us every time!
