The Campaign Trail #2

Thursday, 1 June 2017

Hello once again and thank you for joining me on the next step of 'The Campaign Trail'. So, what's been 'appening? Well, as I described in #1, my social media reach is fairly limited so I have made an attempt to remedy that.

I've never been a fan of Twitter. I know that it's popular with a lot of people and can be a zippy little tool for sharing information, news, spats between minor celebrities, etc., but it's never been my thing. It also looks like you need a heck of a lot of time to be a pro and to establish a reasonable reach. Nonetheless, I took the plunge.

Above: you'll note from my number of followers that I am immensely popular.

If you wish to follow me (I am @MaxHawker) then please do go ahead and I will return the follow - just persevere with me while I get used to something so unfamiliar!

Another thing I'm trying is Thunderclap, which is a way of getting a message spread across social media with a simple click of a button. Check it out at: The idea is that if one person shares the thunderclap, it can be seen by however many friends, followers or whatever they have, and can then be shared again, slowly being seen by more and more people. It seems like a great idea, so if you want to try sharing it for me as well, then I'd be much obliged.

On a final note, one of my closest friends shared with me a few pictures of my flyers in Waterstones Croydon:

Above: looking tasty.

It's good to see they're still there...or is it?


Next time on Updates: I will continue to share details of the process of developing Breaking the Foals and shall do so by discussing how I have gone about my research. And yes, there was a LOT of it!
